Yoo Inna and Lee Dong-wook to reunite for Reach of Sincerity
After weeks of speculation, Yoo Inna (The Lonely Shining Goblin) and Lee Dong-wook (Life) have confirmed they will join the legal romance drama, Reach of Sincerity, as the male and female protagonists.
Lee Dong-wook will play a high-flying workaholic attorney named Kwon Jung-rok. He’s the perfect man, and is above all things professional. He regards his work as being sacred and this attitude makes him very popular with both his clients and his law firm.
Yoo Inna will play Oh Jin-shim, his secretary. She’s no ordinary secretary though, she’s hiding her true identity—Hallyu star actress. After becoming entangled in a dating scandal, she was forced to retire from the industry. Though she was well-known for her beauty, our heroine was notorious for her terrible acting skills. In order to silence her acting critics and make a splashy comeback, our Hallyu star decides to take a break in the “real world,” which is how she ends up a secretary. Oh Jin-shim is described as not quite grounded in reality and lacking common sense. She tends to treat everything like a scene out of a drama. She’s a little wacky, but charming and lovely nonetheless.
I’m excited to see our Goblin couple reunite! Lee Dong-wook plays straight-laced characters so well and always manages to inject humor and charm into them. Yoo Inna brings so much charisma to her roles and I can’t wait to see her tackle this loopy Hallyu star-secretary role.
Attached to direct is PD Park Joon-hwa (What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim, Because This Is My First Life). Reach of Sincerity is based on a Korean web novel by the same name and the drama is scheduled to air in early 2019 on tvN.
