tvN’s Flower of Evil holds first script reading with Lee Jun-ki, Moon Chae-won
tvN’s upcoming Flower of Evil recently held their first script reading and stills have now been released. Lead actors, Lee Jun-ki (Lawless Attorney), Moon Chae-won (Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter), Jang Hee-jin (Babel), and Seo Hyun-woo (The Lies Within) were present at the reading along with members of the supporting cast and the production team.
The story is based around the question of what if you suddenly suspected your loving husband of 14 years to be a cold-blooded serial killer? And it follows the wife as she grapples with what is true, whether her husband’s love was just an act, and what to make of who he really is.
Lee Jun-ki plays the suspicious husband, Baek Hee-sung. As his wife eventually discovers, however, his name is not his birthname. He changed his name before he met his wife in order to conceal his terrible past.
Playing his wife is Moon Chae-won, whose character’s name is Cha Ji-won. Loving and charismatic, she works as a police detective in the violent crimes unit.
Jang Hee-jin takes on the role of Do Hae-soo, who has had a troubled and lonely life as the daughter of a serial murderer.
And Seo Hyun-woo plays a journalist named Kim Moo-jin. Although determined and persistent, he has a tendency to become blinded by his desire to catch the exclusives and breaking news stories of the day.
Supporting cast who were also present at the reading included Nam Ki-ae (I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day), Choi Dae-hoon (Crash Landing on You), and Choi Byung-mo (Money Game) among others.
Writing for the drama is rookie writer, Yoo Jung-hee (Naked Fireman). And directing will be done by PD Kim Chul-gyu (Mother) who has an interesting filmography which includes On the Way to the Airport, My Beautiful Bride, and Hwang Jin-yi.
Flower of Evil is currently set to premiere in July and will be airing Wednesdays and Thursdays on tvN.
