Song Hye Kyo’s Agency Clarifies That Her Recent Decision To Turn Down Drama Was Unrelated To Divorce

Jun 27, 2019
by E. Cha



Song Hye Kyo’s agency has clarified reports about her reasons for turning down the upcoming drama “Hyena” (literal title).

Last month, Song Hye Kyo and Joo Ji Hoon were confirmed to be in talks for the new legal drama, which will be helmed by producing director (PD) Jang Tae Yoo of “My Love from the Star.” However, it was revealed on June 27 that the actress had ultimately decided not to appear in the drama.

An unconfirmed report published by news outlet Ilgan Sports claimed that after initially declining the lead role, Song Hye Kyo had changed her mind and accepted the casting offer—then suddenly pulled out of the drama at the beginning of this week.





Kim Hye Soo In Talks Along With Joo Ji Hoon For New Drama

by C. Hong



Kim Hye Soo might be starring in a new drama soon!

On July 30, a source from the entertainment industry stated to a media outlet, “Kim Hye Soo has received a casting offer from ‘Hyena’ and is in final negotiations.”

A source from Kim Hye Soo’s agency, HODU&U Entertainment, stated later that day, “‘Hyena’ is one of the projects that Kim Hye Soo is reviewing. She is currently just in talks.”

“Hyena” will be directed by Jang Tae Yoo (“Tree With Deep Roots” and “My Love from the Star“) and tells the story of lawyers who cater to the elite “1 percent” of society.

Back in May, it was reported that Song Hye Kyo and Joo Ji Hoon were in talks to star in the drama, although Song Hye Kyo eventually turned down her offer.

It is reported that Kim Hye Soo has been offered the same role that Song Hye Kyo was in talks for. The character, Jung Geum Ja, is described as a lawyer who chases success without caring about how she gets there. She wasn’t able to attend university because she came from a poor background, but eventually passed the bar exam and is now fiercely ambitious for a better future.










I am glad that Both Ki Hye Soo and Joo Ji Hoon have confirmed to star in this drama. I see sopme changes. It will be a SBS show and it will air next year, in the first half of 2020. I hope they will start filming this year and Kim Hye Soo to be free to film Signal 2. She has confirmed recently that she will star in a movie as well. Very busy scredules.

There is an article about the filming schedules of the actors.


Kim Hye-soo and Ji-hoon Hoon are carrying out a special 'Home Theater Landing Operation'. They will star in SBS 'Hiena', which will be broadcast in February next year, despite the busy shooting of movies taken next year. The crew is preparing early to shoot as efficiently as possible.


Kim Hye-soo and Ju Ji-hoon portray the world of fierce lawyers with “hyena”. The two opposite lawyers talk about opposition and cooperation for their own survival. Jang Tae-yu, the producer of SBS's You from the Star, is in charge.


The drama crew is working on keeping the two actors on schedule. Kim Hye-soo can appear in the drama scene at the end of October, when she finishes the filming of  movie 'The Day I Die'. Ju Ji-hoon is expected to join the filming of the film “Kidnapped” in late February. The time they spend on “Hyena” is only four months. It is a very short time considering the drama environment, which opens the script reading five to six months before the first broadcast.

So the crew is trying to find a way to complete the shooting quickly.  Based on this situation, the crew schedules the shooting and is also busy casting the rest of the cast.

Kim Hye-soo, Joo Ji-hoon confirm high-powered elite legal drama

by tineybeanie


Actress Kim Hye-soo (Signal) has confirmed she will be making her long-awaited drama comeback, after a four year hiatus, with Hyena. She will be joining Joo Ji-hoon (Item) in this drama about the cutthroat world of the lawyers who serve the top 1% of society. They use the law like a finely honed weapon to take down their enemies.

The showrunners are being frugal with plot details, but we know that Kim Hye-soo will be playing a character named Jung Geum-ja who will do anything for money. Joo Ji-hoon will be playing Yoon Hee-jae, a man born with a silver spoon and is the most elite of the elite. Both these actors are excellent at walking the gray line of moral ambiguity while still making you want to root for them, so I’m looking forward to seeing what they can do with this material.

What’s even more exciting is that PD Jang Tae-woo of You From Another Star and Tree With Deep Roots will be directing from a script written by Kim Roo-ri, the writer who won the 2013 SBS screenwriting contest. Furthermore, the talent management agency KeyEast is expanding into production with Hyena, as well as the upcoming Psychopath Diary.

In Hyena, Park Bo-in will play the role of Kim Sang-mi, who is like a limb of Yoon Hee-jae (Ju Ji-hoon). The attention is paid to what color Park Bo-in will express his right arm Kim Sang-mi, who works only for Yoon Hee-jae.

Watch: Kim Hye Soo And Joo Ji Hoon Face Off In Thrilling Battle For Money, Power, And Survival In 1st Teaser For “Hyena”

Dec 31, 2019
by S. Park

The first look at “Hyena” has been shared!

This upcoming SBS drama is about a woman named Jung Geum Ja. Although she was unable to attend college due to her poor background, she passes the bar exam to become a lawyer and refuses to let anything stand in her way of success.

The voiceover in a first teaser for the show narrates, “This is a place filled with predators after people with money and power,” as the teaser likens the dog-eat-dog competitiveness of society to the wilderness.

The narration continues, “They put this animal in charge of cleaning up after them.” Introducing Joo Ji Hoon and Kim Hye Soo’s characters, the voiceover adds, “This male especially stands out from the crowd for his quick problem-solving skills. However, he frequently gets his food stolen from this female. This female never lets go of her prey.”
