A shabby Joo Jin-mo and a bedazzled Han Ye-seul in new promo for Big Issue

New stills and a teaser have been released for upcoming SBS drama Big Issue featuring its leads, Joo Jin-mo (Bad Guys: City of Evil) and Han Ye-seul (20th Century Boy and Girl).

The drama is a rise to success story centered around its two leads and set within the tabloid news industry where there is an ongoing war for information. While some are striving to protect and conceal their secrets, others will stop at nothing and use all means to uncover those uncomfortable truths and be the first to get the scoop.

Joo Jin-mo will be playing the character of Han Seok-joo who starts the story as an alcoholic and homeless after losing all motivation for life. However, he soon begins life again as a tabloid photographer.

Han Ye-seul plays Ji Soo-hyun. She has a persistent personality and is the editor of the nation’s most notorious tabloid newspaper, Sunday Dispatch, which is known for being the best at uncovering celebrity scandals.

In the photo above, Han Ye-seul is pictured in full reporter mode. And in the stills below, we see Han Ye-seul and Joo Jin-mo’s first encounter aboard a train. Joo Jin-mo appears to be running from someone and Han Ye-seul motions for him to enter the train compartment to help him hide.

In the released teaser, we see intercuts of Han Ye-seul getting dressed in fancy accessories and walking to her car, while an unseen person lurks in the shadows. We then see camera flashes, and a shot of focusing in and out on Han Ye-seul sitting in her car. Joo Jin-mo then appears in a close-up, holding his camera and taking photos. However, it quickly cuts to someone watching Joo Jin-mo through the security camera footage on a tablet. The teaser then returns to Han Ye-seul smiling in the car as we hear her voice over: “Someone is filming you. Big Issue.”

Big Issue will be premiering soon on March 6, 2019, and will be airing Wednesdays and Thursdays on SBS after An Empress’ Dignity comes to an end.

Looks like the writer is Jang Hyeok-Rin, who has The K2, Yong-Pal, and Reset listed as previous work.

Huh. Aren't they all dramas that lost steam by the second half?

I finished K2, Yong-Pal was about a MacGyver-esque doctor.

Historical note: K2 and YP were recapped by Gummimochi & HeadsNO2, 😟😒

I would have said they were dramas that were pretty bad from frame one myself.

Yong Pal was really bad. In fact, I think you should watch it so you can also know how bad it was.

I was so excited and then I read your comment. The K2 was so bad. Yong Pal was fine the first 6 plagiarized episodes and then we don't talk about the rest. 😣😣

I liked the first half of Yong-Pal but then it switched gears and became a totally different drama and the character of Yong-Pal (which the dramas was named after) basically vanished. He actually barely had any presence in the show.

K2 was actually very well done, except for the character of Anna. Her character nearly ruined the whole drama. The drama would have been excellent if she had been completely written out, or maybe change her to a young child character rather then have her as a romantic lead. I absolutely loved the character of Choi Yoo-Jin and the chemistry between her and Kim Je-Ha was crackling. I just think this writer needs to stay away from romance because that's where the writer really struggles.
