Lee Joo-young confirmed, Lee Seo-jin considering a new OCN thriller
Casting has just been confirmed for Lee Joo-young (Itaewon Class) in a new OCN drama called Times. She join veteran actor Kim Young-chul (My Country: New Age) who was cast earlier in the year. According to reports, Lee Seo-jin (Trap) has also been offered a lead role and is currently considering favorably.
The story for OCN’s Times is a political thriller with a dash of timeslip magic. A woman in the year 2020 is somehow able to call a man in 2015 through her phone. The two work together to try and save the president of South Korea from assassination.
Playing the role of said president is Kim Young-chul, whose life is (or is about to be?) in danger. Lee Joo-young is stepping into the role of his daughter, Seo Jung-in, who works as a reporter.
If Lee Seo-jin accepts, he will be playing another reporter named Lee Jin-woo who works for a newspaper called Times.
This is definitely a cast I can get behind. Kim Young-chul is always a win and I’m happy to see Lee Joo-young moving up into bigger roles. She’s been steadily building experience through supportive characters, and recently gained a lot of well-deserved attention through her work in indie films as well. Fingers-crossed Lee Seo-jin joins the cast as well!
OCN’s new political thriller Times is currently being planned to air next year, in 2021.
