Lee Min-ki considers OCN drama with Cheese in the Trap PD
New drama alert! OCN is teaming up with Cheese in the Trap’s PD Lee Yoon-jung to produce a thriller, tentatively called Everyone’s Lie, with an offer out to Lee Min-ki (Beauty Inside) to star in a leading role. The drama sounds like a bit of a genre departure for PD Lee, whose other credits include Heart to Heart, Golden Time, Triple, and dramaland classic Coffee Prince, so it’ll be interesting to see her take on what sounds like a very OCN-like drama.
There hasn’t been many details released regarding the plot of Everyone’s Lie, but what we do have sounds intriguing: The show revolves around a woman whose husband disappears after the sudden death of her father. She starts receiving “pieces” of her husband – which I sincerely hope means something other than body parts – and in order to save him, she becomes a politician. So, this show is definitely not one in a very compact timeline, as is typical in many kidnapping dramas, since she has to run and win an election.
She will team up with a detective to find out the truth, which I’m sure is more complicated than it seems and the show will be full of twists and turns to get there. The role Lee Min-ki is considering is the detective, who is described as having a great gut instinct and a relentless drive. As much as I love Lee Min-ki, I’m more looking forward to watching a thriller with a female character at its core, and I’m excited to learn who will be cast as the woman desperately trying to save her kidnapped husband.
Everyone’s Lie is slated to air sometime on OCN in the latter half of this year.
