Song Hye-kyo, Ju Ji-hoon courted to headline new legal drama ‘Hyena’

Song Hye-kyo, Ju Ji-hoon courted to headline new legal Korean drama 'Hyena'
 

Song Hye-kyo and Ju Ji-hoonhave been offered starring roles in a new legal drama titled Hyena, their respective agencies confirmed on May 30.

Hyena tells the stories of lawyers who work for the upper class, particularly those who belong to the top 1% of the richest men in the society. It is reportedly an atypical legal drama because the law will be used as a “weapon of survival.” 

Song Hye-kyo was courted to play a lawyer named Jung Geum-ja, a “true hyena” who does not hesitate to cross the boundaries between lawful and illegal activities, justice and injustice, and morality and corruption in order to succeed and survive.

The actress was last seen playing the lead in the 2018 romantic series Encounter opposite Park Bo-gum. If she accepts the offer, Hyena will be her second post-Descendants of the Sun drama. Meanwhile, Ju Ji-hoon is in talks to portray Yoon Hee-jae, an elite lawyer who is very confident in his brilliant mind and abilities, which he uses to effectively deal with the law and cater to his VIP clients. 

If Ju signs up for the role, Hyena will become his third series this year, following the Korean Netflix original series Kingdom and MBC drama Item.

Hyena will premiere on KBS2 in November.

Song Hye-Kyo & Joo Ji-Hoon Respond to Rumours of Starring in New Drama

Fri., 31 May. 2019 2:37 AM

South Korean news outlets have reported that there are industry rumours regarding top Hallyu actress, Song Hye-kyo and actor,Ju Ji-Hoon starring in the upcoming drama titled Hyena

The rumours were that "Song Hye-Kyo and Ju Ji-Hoon will be the main characters for the new Wednesday/Thursday drama on KBS 2TV, Hyena. It will air in November."

The drama tells the story of Jung Geum-Ja, a high profile lawyer working for the top 1% of society. She is notorious for disregarding morals and manipulating the law in order to win her high-paying cases. Her paths crossed with Yoo Hee-Jae, a conceited lawyer who believes that he can manipulate the top 1% with his skills. 

What sets Hyena apart from other courtroom dramas is that the plot will showcase how the law can actually be manipulated to serve the rich and influential. It is a critique on the flaws in the justice system rather than a story about conviction. 

It is scheduled to premiere November this year....source credit @https://m.eonline.com/ap/news/1045798/song-hye-kyo-joo-ji-hoon-respond-to-rumours-of-starring-in-new-drama

Top actors Song Hye-kyo and Ju Ji-hoon may co-star in the new drama "Hyena."
"Song received the drama's script but has not made a decision yet," a spokesperson for her agency UAA said Thursday. "She has been reviewing various works."
KEYEAST, which represents Ju, revealed "Hyena" is one of the works Ju has been looking at. 
The soap opera revolves around lawyers who represent the high-class. It is not a legal drama, but a story centering on people. 
If the actors confirm their appearance, Song will play a money-oriented character, with Ju taking the role of an elite lawyer. 
The TV series will reportedly go to air in November. 
Song, 37, is a leading hallyu star with dozens of hits, including drama "Autumn in My Heart" (2000), "Full House" (2004) and "Descendants of the Sun" (2016).
Ju, 37, has appeared in several works including TV series "Princess Hours (2006)," and the film "Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds" and its sequel in 2017-18....source credit @http://m.koreatimes.co.kr/pages/article.asp?newsIdx=269825

Song Hye Kyo Tapped to Star in 'Hyena' With Joo Ji Hoon; Song Joong Ki’s Wife Expected to Confirm Drama Soon

Song Hye Kyo is likely to return to small screen sooner than expected. She recently got an offer to star with Joo Ji Hoon for the legal-themed drama called “Hyena,” and Song Joong Ki’s wife may confirm her new project soon.

According to South Korea’s Ilgan Sports, Hye Kyo’s role will be very different from her last two dramas “Descendants of the Sun” and “Encounter” as this time, she will be a hotshot lawyer who only work for clients belonging to the upper class, the top one percent of the population to be exact. On the other hand, Ji Hoon is also a lawyer, but it was not stated how their characters are related to each other.

Allkpop added that KBS2’s “Hyena” is not a typical legal drama because the lead cast, Song Hye Kyo (Jung Geum Ja) and Joo Ji Hoon (Yoon Hee Jae) are the types of lawyers who do not exactly fight for justice, but they will also do everything to win a case, even if they are representing a bad guy, as they need to survive 

In other words, they Hye Kyo and Ji Hoon put more importance on money and success rather than finding real justice for the victims. They will go over the boundaries of the law, ethics, and corruption just to win - no matter what it takes. Likewise, Jung Geum Ja and Yoon Hee Jae have brilliant minds. However, they use it to advance and put more cash in their bank accounts, and ignore morality altogether to achieve their goals.

This will be Song Hye Kyo’s follow-up drama after doing “Encounter” with Park Bo Gum. As expected, her comeback drama did so well, and it maintained good viewership ratings throughout its airing period. Meanwhile, Key East Entertainment will produce “Hyena” and based on the initial report, it will premiere this November...sourcr carit @https://www.econotimes.com/Song-Hye-Kyo-Tapped-to-Star-in-Hyena-With-Joo-Ji-Hoon-Song-Joong-Kis-Wife-Expected-to-Confirm-Drama-Soon-1543906
