Daniel Choi and Lee Won-geun up to join workplace drama Jugglers
Daniel Choi, Lee Won-geun
Kang Hye-jung (Lucid Dream) may find herself juggling Daniel Choi (Big Man) and Lee Won-geun (Mystery Queen), who are both up to join the office drama Jugglers. I’m guessing Yoon Kyun-sang passed on the project, but I’m liking this pairing a lot better.
The plot is centered around the romance of a secretary with an extremely sacrificing personality. She works with an I-can-do-anything-you-ask attitude, under an indifferent boss. He is independent to the point of being antisocial and approaches his work with a My-work-is-MINE type of mindset. Daniel Choi is up for the role of the boss, while Kang Hye-jung was offered the role of the secretary earlier last week. The title itself refers to the job of a secretary, who has to multitask constantly, juggling tasks all day.
If Daniel Choi confirms, it’ll be his first drama since 2014, when he played the villain in Big Man. Lee Won-geun has also received an offer for an unspecified role in Jugglers, but he has not confirmed. The two actors have crossed paths before in Ghost, a cybersecurity thriller drama in 2012, where Daniel Choi was a lead actor and Lee Won-geun played a small cameo role at the very beginning of his acting career.
Hmmm, if everyone confirms, I hope the dynamic will be similar to Mystery Queen with the two established actors, Daniel Choi and Kang Hye-jung, playing the main leads and Lee Won-geun being a cute puppy in between. KBS Monday-Tuesday workplace drama Jugglers will begin airing in December, after Witch’s Court finishes its run.
