She graduated at the top of her class and was under a spotlight at the prosecutor’s office for being the youngest female prosecutor in history.

Chun Woo-hee, Yoo Joon-sang consider new SBS legal thriller Falsify

by girlfriday


We’re about to be up to our eyeballs in prosecutors, which seems to be the hot career choice for drama characters this year. On the heels of their latest hit drama Defendant, SBS has announced that they’re going to produce a new legal drama called Falsify, about prosecutors and reporters. Offers are out to Chun Woo-hee (The Wailing) and Yoo Joon-sang (Pied Piper) to play the leading roles, and they’re considering favorably.

The drama is about a world where the truth has been turned upside-down, and a prosecutor and a journalist who aim to turn that world right-side up. Between this drama, Defendant, Whisper, Beware This Woman, and While You Were Sleeping, it sounds like SBS plans to fill their entire year with legal eagles. The new series comes from PD Lee Jung-heum, who was the second PD on Jealousy Incarnate and directed the drama special I’m After You, and writer Kim Hyun-jung, a junior writer on Who Are You–School 2015 who also wrote drama specials Junior High Student Miss A and Her Perfect Day.

Jeon Hye-bin up to join SBS’s Falsify as photojournalist

by tipsymocha


It looks like 2017 will be the year for legal dramas, at least for SBS. Jeon Hye-bin (Woman With a Suitcase, Oh Hae-young Again) is up to potentially join Chun Woo-hee (The Wailing) and Yoo Joon-sang (Pied Piper) in upcoming legal thriller Falsify. All three are still positively considering their offers, but I hope they confirm, because that would be one strong cast.

If she accepts, Jeon Hye-bin will play Oh Yoo-kyung, a veteran photojournalist on Yoo Joon-sang’s news team. Oh Yoo-kyung is described as cool-headed and strong-willed, and has a long working history with Yoo Joon-sang’s character Lee Suk-min. She’ll also share a passion for justice with Lee Suk-min and Chun Woo-hee’s prosecutor character Kwon So-ra. Oh Yoo-kyung sounds pretty cool, which is even more reason why I think Jeon Hye-bin should take the part. My opinion of her fluctuates between her roles, but I liked her best as Hye-won in Joseon Gunman, and I’m getting a similar vibe from the little description we have.

The actor Cho Jae-hyun said he is still considering the appearance of SBS Falsify'.

Cho Jae-hyun told OSEN on the 20th, "that his appearance in this drama is not definitive. It is just a work under review. "




I am excited if he will accept. I think he will be the main villain. What a solid cast it will be. Hope I can see Chun Woo hee  finally in a drama and I want to seeYoo Joon Sang and Jeon Hye Bin again.These three actors are all colleagues at the same agency Namooactors and hope they will join Namgoong Min in this drama. I can`t wait to hear new information about this drama soon.

This article from Dramabeans says that he is not confirmed yet but today Korean news said that he is confirmed.

Nam Song-min's agency commented, "The drama will show a serious and charismatic charm of Namgoong Min which is different from his previous role as Chief Kim." . In the meantime, "Namgoong Min started to study the character of this work in earnest, and the full-scale shooting is scheduled to start from early May." (using Google translate)

Thank you @larus for creating the thread, I am so excited. Seems like he already signed up for Falsify even during the Chief Kim event.



@RayB he did shine as Chief Kim , shedding of the Nam Gyu Man image he had. I am curious on how he will pull this new character in order to isolate if from Nam Gyu Man or Ahn Dan Te (he's a lawyer in Gong Shim)


I watched Cheon Woo Hee in One Day and she looks promising. I like her acting there. And if Jeon Hye Bin will confirm, I couldnt ask for more :D

 @larus  thumbs up for this thread.  Thank you. Taking a break from binge watching Tunnel (just done with exciting ep 6!)

 I'm so sooo happy to see Nam Goongmin in a drama that's isn't like rom-com! I didn't watch his last two dramas. Last one I watch was Remember: War of the Son. If viewers want to see scary psycho... they should check that drama! he was so scary excellent!

And  Cho Jae Hyun too?! another good one as corrupt scary psycho killer as well in Master of Revenge.  I also watch his last drama is Solomon's Perjury.

I wanna see both of them in this drama. And can the network/pd also add Kim Tae Woo?! Hah! I'm not familiar with the females lead however.

I''ll be waiting for updates. Thanks.

@RayB the soundtrack leaves a different feel in that smile, it became creepy haha!

@jongski I agree ! And I think he really did take roles that he didn't touch yet. His interview says so .


“I once took a two-year hiatus from acting after I was in Can You Hear My Heart? (in 2011) on MBC, because I was being too picky with the offers I was receiving, whether it was because of the genre or the character. That was when I started changing my views on taking projects. I decided that I shouldn’t just look for characters I wanted to play, but really take a deeper look into the characters that were offered to me and become them. After that, I started to take on a lot of projects, regardless of the genre or character type.”

One thing is for sure. He won't be wearing the same suit as Nam Gyu Man . Because the last time he went to go for a 3piece suit I felt a little creepy when he smiled.

@LyraYoo  He's so creepy hot.  Thanks for the photo. I stare! <3

Excited to see him as a reporter uncovering shenanigans  of the corrupt world. Likely unconvincing the politicians, businessmen and societal crimes against taxpayers. This drama needs a good well written script as it will tackle the ills of society through the main story line of revenge/ and avenging death of the reporter brother.

Jeon Hye Bin And Yoo Joon Sang Join Namgoong Min In New SBS Drama



The main cast of SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “Fabrication” (literal title) has been confirmed!

On May 10, a representative of Namoo Actors stated, “Yoo Joon Sang and Jeon Hye Bin have been confirmed to appear in ‘Fabrication’ and they have started filming already.” Yoo Joon Sang will play Lee Seok Min, who goes from a disgraced reporter at Daehan Daily to the head of the team in charge of splash pages. Jeon Hye Bin will play Oh Yoo Kyung, a veteran photo journalist who is a part of Lee Seok Min’s team.

The two will be joining Namgoong Min, who will play troublemaker reporter Han Moo Young. His character becomes a reporter and fights against corruption to seek revenge for his brother, who faced an unwarranted death while trying to uncover a big corruption scandal.

Chun Woo Hee was originally set to join the drama as well, but Namoo Actors announced that she had made the final decision to not appear in the drama. The agency stated, “Chun Woo Hee initially turned the project down after careful consideration. However, she was given a second offer and was given time to think it over. After talking things out, she has made the final decision to turn down the offer.”
