Jung Yong-hwa, Jang Nara paired for new KBS drama
Jang Nara, Jung Yong-hwa
Casting for a new KBS drama called Jackpot Realty is underway, and the main leads have been announced as Jang Nara (VIP, Oh My Baby) and Jung Yong-hwa (The Package). It’s about a real estate exorcist business that cleanses properties that have been tainted by ghosts. For superstitious folk, moving into a home where a previous tenant has died is a huge no-no, so this company is called in to exorcise it and restore a good spiritual balance.
Jang Nara plays the role of the real estate business owner/exorcist-in-chief. Her spiritual abilities are something she inherited from her mother’s side of the family. She seems perfect in a way, beautiful and intelligent, but she has a less than ideal tendency of letting her fists do the talking for her.
On the other hand, Jung Yong-hwa plays a realist who doesn’t believe in ghosts. However, he’s a con artist that uses made-up “ghosts” to swindle unsuspecting victims into wanting his services as an exorcist. The character has an extremely keen sense of observation and extraordinary deductive abilities that allow him to pretend as though he has a precocious sixth sense. Compared to Jang Nara’s character who is described as a cold, chic woman with a hot temper, Jung Yong-hwa is supposed to be a warm and friendly pretty boy with calculating edge.
Written by a team composed of Ha Soo-jin, Lee Young-hwa and Jung Yeon-seo, and directed by Park Jin-seok, Wednesday-Thursday drama Jackpot Realty will begin airing on KBS in the early half of this year.
