Honey Lee to take on dual role in new comedy with Lee Sang-yoon
Honey Lee, Lee Sang-yoon
Recently, SBS drama One the Woman confirmed its two leads, Lee Sang-yoon (VIP) and Honey Lee (Killing Romance, The Fiery Priest). It’s a comedy about a corrupt prosecutor who ends up getting amnesia and accidentally switches lives with a chaebol family’s daughter-in-law that looks just like her.
Honey Lee is set to play two characters: rich daughter-in-law Kang Mina and corrupt prosecutor Jo Yeon-joo. Lee Sang-yoon will be playing a third generation chaebol who still has feelings for his first love. Whether they’ll be playing wife and husband is not yet clear.
Former EXID member Park Jung-hwa (Member of Society) has also joined the cast. Her character is an ambitious news anchor who comes from a “dirt spoon” background and dreams of marrying into a chaebol family.
I’m super pumped to see Honey Lee in a drama again. Although her character sounds like a continuation of her role in The Fiery Priest, I’m totally okay with that. She wholeheartedly embraced the absurd comedy of her role as an opportunistic prosecutor, and she completely rocked it.
Directed by Choi Young-hoon (Good Casting, High Society) and written by Kim Yoon, One the Woman will likely air in the latter half of this year.
