She ends up with her life turned upside down when she meets with Ji Oh while on the case of a missing child. Her parents disappeared when she was only a young child. Goo-Reum chases after the truth behind her parents' disappearance.

“The only woman who remains in Ji Oh’s memory.”

Ji Chang Wook In Talks For His Next Drama After “Melting Me Softly”

Ji Chang Wook’s next drama may be decided soon!

On November 18, Sports Donga reported that Ji Chang Wook is in the final stages of reviewing his next project after tvN’s “Melting Me Softly.” The drama he was offered is director Kim Hong Seon’s “LUCA” (Last Universal Common Ancestor, tentative title). Kim Hong Seon has directed OCN’s “Voice,” “Black,” and “The Guest.” The director and Ji Chang Wook have previously worked together through SBS’s “Warrior Baek Dong Soo.”

Ji Chang Wook’s agency Glorious Entertainment stated to Star Today, “It is true that he was offered a role in ‘LUCA.’ He is reviewing the offer.”

According to Sports Donga, “LUCA” will be a 12-episode pre-produced drama and air on tvN around early or mid 2020.

A source from tvN shared, “‘LUCA’ is one of the projects we are thinking of scheduling in, and nothing has been decided. It is true that we offered Ji Chang Wook a role, but his appearance has not been confirmed yet.”

“LUCA” is based on Charles Darwin’s proposition that all species of life have descended over time from common ancestors. Genetics is a topic that has not been dealt with in Korean dramas. A broadcasting industry source shared, “Ji Chang Wook is working hard to show his various sides and make a transformation through acting. Through ‘LUCA,’ you will be able to see a side of Ji Chang Wook that you haven’t been able to see.”

Lee Da Hee and Kim Rae Won may be starring in an intriguing new sci-fi drama!

On January 29, Lee Da Hee’s agency Huayi Brothers Korea confirmed that the actress had been offered a leading role in the upcoming drama “LUCA.” A representative of the agency stated, “She has received a casting offer and is currently in talks.”

Kim Rae Won’s agency HB Entertainment previously confirmed that the actor was in talks to play the drama’s male lead last week. On January 22, the agency stated, “Kim Rae Won has received a casting offer for ‘LUCA,’ and he is currently in the process of reviewing it.”

“LUCA,” which stands for Last Universal Common Ancestor, is a concept inspired by Charles Darwin’s “On the Origin of Species,” in which the scholar first proposed the theory of universal common descent from a shared ancestor.

The upcoming drama will tell the story of an elite scientist who, after facing personal hardship, creates a new living organism to speed up the process of human evolution. 

Although Ji Chang Wook was previously in talks for the drama, he reportedly turned down the leading role in favor of starring in Lifetime’s upcoming webtoon adaptation “Convenience Store Saet Byul” (literal title).

“LUCA” will be helmed by Kim Hong Sun, the director behind “Voice” and “The Guest,” and penned by Chun Sung Il, the writer behind “Your Honor” and “Slave Hunters” (“Chuno”). The drama is currently in talks to air on either tvN or OCN, and it is expected to premiere sometime in the second half of this year.

Kim Rae-won, Lee Da-hee confirmed for tvN’s sci-fi drama Luca

by tineybeanie

krw_ldh1.jpg
Kim Rae-won, Lee Da-hee

Kim Rae-won (Black Knight) and Lee Da-hee (Search Query: WWW) have been confirmed as the leads in a new drama about genetic engineering called Luca. With Charles Darwin’s Origin of Species as a starting point, this drama tells the story of a man, played by Kim Rae-won, who was born extraordinarily strong and is thrown into a lonely existence as unknown entities pursue him endlessly.

 

Kim Rae-won’s character, Ji-oh, somehow finds himself thrown into existence. He has no idea who he is, but he possesses a strength unlike any ordinary person. As sudden as his presence in the world is, he’s just as suddenly on the run, as he’s being hunted by people he doesn’t know. While on the run for his life, he uncovers the truth of his identity.

Lee Da-hee is set to play tough police investigator Gu-reum. After finding evidence of her supervisor’s corruption, she’s relocated from the high crimes unit to the violent crimes unit. With a somewhat reckless personality, she’s unstoppable once she puts her mind to something.

 

Her parents disappeared when she was younger, and she’s obsessed with finding the truth behind their disappearance. Somehow along her journey, she meets Ji-oh, and their combined energy and skills allows them to uncover some of the answers they seek.

Luca will be directed by Kim Hong-seon (The Guest) and written by Chun Sung-il (Your Honor, Level 7 Civil Servant). Personally, I’m a huge fan of Lee Da-hee and the director’s last drama The Guest, but PD Kim has an uneven track record. He was also behind the drama Level 7 Civil Servant, which was a disaster. I also think Kim Rae-won is more suited to sweet comedies. So I’m just keeping my fingers crossed that Luca will take the best of everyone’s talents and turn out amazing.

Reading the artice. Why am I thinking  Bruce Banner  and Incredible Hulk.:o:unsure:

 

 I want to see Kim Rae  but  this drama ...it's sci-fi. Not gonna lie, I want to see  him in a drama that is void of any "super power" strenght. I mean  I like  him playing a lawyer again, or  doctor, a political candidate. You know.  Same thing I though of Choi Jin Hyu starring in currenmt sci-fi drama Rugal ( whch I wasn't that keen). But this is Kim Rae Won, so I'm going to check this. Thanks larus, for updates.

I was surprised to read about the hero`s "super power". I thought that the protagonists are both geneticians in this drama. I saw Kim Rae won in two dramas and my favorite role of him is the prosecutor in Punch.

 

There are many themes in sci fi. Rugal is the classic super power heroes, good vs evil, from comics. Other sci fi can explore the humans/ mankind nature, how technology can have effects on humans and other stuff but the dramas are not very different from the "common genre". I saw thrillers like Tunnel, Signal, Life of Mars who use sci fi/ fantasy background. Other kdramas will explore time travel, parallel universes. At first I did not know what to expect from tvN drama LUCA, but after reading more about characters, it is clear now for me that it will be a mystery, investigative kind of drama.The protagonists have different personalities but in a way both are searching about themself. They will for a team. In the prosess they will discover each other strenghts, maybe they will start having some feelings for each other (friendship or romantic).   The hero will discover some "super powers" and I have no doubts that he will use them to their advantage but it is most to connect him to genetic researches or to question more who he is.

This drama has just 12 episodes. The gene I like, the cast I like. It might not be a novelty but I will watch.

@larus three of my favorite kdramas esp Signal one of the best kdrama.  You're right. I can watch something fantasy like paranormal even  as long as it's well written and good execution of the drama.  Yes, the Darwin theory plus genetics  got me intrigued and sounds like good mature type of drama.. the sci-fi part just got me thinking though. And you explaining like that. I understand now.  I'm going to watch this too.

Lee Da Hee, with her unrivaled charm, transforms into the dedicated detective Gu Reum, who is transferred from the Major Crimes Investigative Unit while investigating the corruption of a superior officer. Gu Reum is a person who acts before she thinks and bulldozes on ahead once she makes up her mind. She ends up with her life turned upside down when she meets with Ji Oh while on the case of a missing child.

 

An actress with a strong filmography to back up her strong personality, Lee Da Hee is a perfect fit for the role, having participated in such works as “Beauty Inside” and “Search: WWW.” On joining the cast of “LUCA,” Lee Da Hee said, “After ‘Search: WWW’ I wanted to find a good drama to work on, so I was thrilled when I heard about ‘LUCA.’ It’s got a great director, a great writer, and a great cast, so I look forward to getting to work with all of them. I’m honored to be working with these seniors, who I always wanted to work with at least once.”

 

The production team behind ‘LUCA’ said of the work, “[Viewers] can expect the birth of a new genre that is as diruptive and differential as the material it covers. Because we have some of the best actors and producers working on this drama, you can expect a great drama to come out of it.”

 

“LUCA” is currently slated to premiere in the latter half of the year.

 If the actor is excited about this drama and thinks it is an interesting script then, it is good. I keep my expectation moderated but I hope they are giving us a good drama.

 

I heard there will be a September premiere but with all this delaying, we don`t know for sure.
