Jung In-sun joins So Ji-sub in spy rom-com drama
I’m pleased to hear that Jung In-sun (Woohoo Waikiki) has scored a big role with the upcoming MBC series My Secret Terrius, which puts her in the leading role opposite So Ji-sub (Oh My Venus), who signed on earlier this year. She’s one of those actresses I’ve noticed every time I’ve seen her, whether it’s a lead role or side character, whether she’s being funny (Woohoo Waikiki) or paranoid (Circle) or vengeful (Mirror of the Witch), so I’m looking forward to seeing her here.
My Secret Terrius comes from the writer of the upbeat comedy Shopping King Louis and is described a “spy romantic comedy” series featuring a mysterious neighbor named Kim Bon and an unstoppable ajumma named Go Ae-rin. (At 27, I’d normally think “ajumma” is a bit of a stretch for Jung In-sun, but she did just play a single mom in Waikiki, so I can sort of see it. The “unstoppable” part especially!)
In the drama, So Ji-sub plays legendary black ops secret agent Kim Bon, which seems like the perfect role for him. Go Ae-rin is the woman who is widowed suddenly who happens to move in next door to Kim Bon, and somehow she ends up working with him on getting to the bottom of a large-scale conspiracy. Ooh, I can see it unfolding already, and it sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Shopping King Louis really grew on me with its oddball sense of humor and sweet romance, so I’m hoping lightning can strike twice for writer Oh Ji-young.
My Secret Terrius is set to premiere in September as a Wednesday-Thursday MBC drama.
