Forest of Secrets writer to pen medical drama next for JTBC
Yay, great news! Lee Soo-yeon, the scriptwriter for recently ended Forest of Secrets, is already preparing for her next drama, which is due out sometime next year. She’ll be making a genre and station jump for the new project, which will be a medical show for JTBC. I’m not a huge fan of medicals, but if it’s this writer, I’ll definitely be checking it out.
It’s hard to believe that legal thriller Forest of Secrets was Lee Soo-yeon’s debut drama, since it’s so well-written and plotted out. I’m still catching up on it (and trying really, really hard not to see any spoilers), but it’s definitely one of those shows that has that trifecta of great acting, writing, and directing, so it’s exciting to hear that she’s already at work on her next project.
There’s not much information available since production is in its very early stages: Writer Lee’s completed the synopsis, but hasn’t started on the actual scripts yet. It’s easy to see why the interest level is high this early on though, since her debut was so strong. Once script work is done, they’re planning on quickly lining up their cast and starting filming. What are the chances they’ll get some of the Forest of Secrets cast members to return for a writer-actor reunion? *prays fervently to the drama gods*
We’ve still got a ways to go until this medical show will be ready for the airwaves next year on JTBC, but I’m looking forward to following its progress and seeing who they cast. Now, more importantly, I’m going to settle in with popcorn for Episode 5 of Forest of Secrets for more intrigue with my favorite emotionless prosecutor and badass female detective!
