Melo-thriller Misty holds its first script read
JTBC drama Misty, directed by PD Mo Wan-il (Beautiful Mind, Sirius), is about the nation’s top TV anchor Go Hye-ran, played by Kim Nam-joo (You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly). She becomes the leading suspect in a murder case, and her husband, played by Ji Jin-hee (Second to Last Love), ends up as her legal counsel in a case that tests their love to the brink.
This mystery melodrama-thriller just released photos of its first script read with cast and crew. It’s actually been quite a while since Kim Nam-joo’s last drama, which was You Who Rolled In Unexpectedly six years ago. For a while, she was known as the drama ratings queen, successively dominating with rom-coms like Queen of Reversals and Queen of Housewives, before the massive hit that was You Who Rolled in Unexpectedly. I’m looking forward to her comeback as a high-profile public figure who suddenly becomes public enemy number one, in a role that will feature her dramatic chops rather than her usual rom-com style.
Ji Jin-hee will play her husband, a public defender who comes from prosecutor roots. Jeon Hye-jin (Romance Hunter) plays a woman who willingly sacrifices herself to become a silent supporter. Musical actor Im Tae-kyung makes his first debut in dramas in Misty as a mysterious figure with a hidden secret. And then there’s a whole slew of veterans in the cast who were present at the script read including Ahn Nae-sang (Temperature of Love), Lee Kyung-young (Argon), Kim Bo-yeon (You’re Too Much), and Lee Ah-hyun (Love Returns).
JTBC Friday-Saturday drama Misty will begin airing early next year on January 26, following Untouchable.
