Gong Hyo-jin may lead new Netflix drama, Queen of the Scene
It’s been reported that Gong Hyo-ji (When the Camellia Blooms) has been positively considering the lead role in a new original series from Netflix called Queen of the Scene. If she signs on, she’ll play a successful makjang drama screenwriter named Kim Ma-ri.
Kim Ma-ri is the queen of makjangs. Her sensationalistic premises, super-speedy plotlines, universally hated villains, and extravagant revenge arcs have all of Korea sitting at the edge of their seats. Her dramas are known as the “MSG for eyes,” with each one hitting astronomical viewer ratings of 35% or more. Therefore, if her name is attached to a project, it’s automatically guaranteed a broadcasting slot.
Queen of the Scene takes all the ingredients of an addictive makjang and twists the cliches. So there’s going to be a frustratingly sweet Candy heroine, a second generation chaebol heir who only has eyes for her, a critical birth secret or two, cheek-slapping water splashes, and more.
Directed by Lee Won-seok (The Royal Tailor, How to Use Guys with Secret Tips) and written by Kim Soo-ah (My P.S. Partner), Queen of the Scene will be released on Netflix, but no premiere date has been confirmed.
