Go Hyun-jung confirms new role in JTBC drama Someone Like You
Go Hyun-jung’s (Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho 2) return to the small screen has been announced. She’s headlining a new JTBC drama called Someone Like You. It tells the story of two women with Go Hyun-jung playing the lead. Her costar has yet to be announced. Go Hyun-jung’s character Hee-joo has always followed her desires and the ill-fated relationship between the two protagonists that led to a miserable life for one woman.
Hee-joo suffered through miserable poverty in her youth, which made her all the more determined to climb up the socioeconomic ladder. As an adult, she achieved success as painter and essayist and married the heir of a hospital foundation. Despite creating a relatively happy family with her husband and two children, Hee-joo still has regrets over the moments in her life where she felt she lived without purpose.
It’s only when Hee-joo encounters the other protagonist that her life is changed completely; it even makes her past poverty seem like child’s play compared to the new trials she has to face. There’s passion and betrayal, depravity and revenge, and not that many more details (yet).
The production team said, “Go Hyun-jung was the first actress we thought of during the planning stages of the drama when we were brainstorming who would best portray Hee-joo’s inner strength and the different aspects of her personality.”
JTBC drama Someone Like You, written by Yoo Bora (Secret Love) and directed by PD Im Hyun-wook (Someone You Might Know), will begin airing in 2021.
