Go Hyun-jung, Ahn Jae-hong in talks for new Netflix comedy-thriller
Netflix is planning a new original comedy-thriller called Mask Girl and has made offers to actors Go Hyun-jung (Reflection of You) and Ahn Jae-hong (Be Melodramatic).
Mask Girl is based on a well-received webtoon that ran from 2015-2018, and was written by Mae-mi and illustrated by Hee-se. The story is about a woman who struggles with an inferiority complex, and it explores how her experiences shaped her insecurities and the lasting effect it has had on her life.
If she accepts, Go Hyun-jung will be taking on the main role of Kim Momi. Although she’s a well-known vlogger, Momi always wears a mask when appearing on camera, keeping her face hidden because of her painful past.
The part offered to Ahn Jae-hong will be one of Go Hyun-jung’s love interests. The two used to work together at the same company where Momi was bullied for being ugly.
On the production side, Mask Girl will be helmed by film director Kim Yong-hoon (Beasts Clawing at Straws). Once casting has been finalized, filming is set to begin early next year.
