“I will make you president, I will be by your side”

Yoon Jae Hee (Soo Ae) is the head of the Sung Jin Cultural Foundation and in charge of operations at “Space Jin,” the art museum owned by Sung Jin Group. She is also the second daughter-in-law of the family that controls Sung Jin Group. Believing that poverty is corrosive to love and that a stable income leads to a steady life, she chose to throw away her long-time lover and entered into a marriage of convenience with Jung Joon Hyuk, an illegitimate son of Sung Jin Group. In order to make her husband the nation’s president, she teams up with the future Public Prosecutor General and goes to war against Sung Jin Group.

"There are only two kinds of humans, those who desire and those who pretend that there is no desire."

 

Jung Joon Hyuk (Kim Kang Woo) is Yoon Jae Hee’s husband. Although he is a popular anchorman with his own fan club, he hides an inferiority complex over being labeled “the illegitimate son of Sung Jin Group” for his whole life. He laughs at both ambitious people and those who pretend to have no ambition even as he waits for the day when he can seize the reins of power.

Kim Kang-woo courted for JTBC drama with Su Ae

Actor Kim Kang-woo (9.9 Billion Won Woman) is considering a return to the small screen as the male lead for JTBC’s Gong Jak City. It’s a mystery psychological thriller that has also been courting Su Ae (The Man Living in Our House) to be the female lead since last December.

 

Gong Jak City is to tell the story of a dark society that only survives through the sacrifices of a few, and hides its sinister side from most. Characters with different ambitions and psychologies from this society become entangled in a messy, tension-filled situation. In terms of casting, nothing is confirmed, but it’s been reported that Kim Kang-woo and Su Ae are both reviewing the script positively.

Kim Kang-woo really seems to be enjoying the thriller genre as this could be his second thriller drama in a row. In the meanwhile if you want to see Kim Kang-woo in something, his new movie It’s Before the New Year also premieres soon.

 

Written by Sohn Sae-dong and directed by PD Jeon Chang-geun (Mystic Pop-up Bar), Gong Jak City will begin filming as soon as casting is confirmed.

Kim Lee-seol, who will be played by Lee Lee-dam in the play, is a character who has a desire to raise her status in her heart, so she is expected to unfold an extraordinary activity. In particular, it is expected that Lee I-dam's stable breathing of acting will capture the home theater, as it is expected to induce tension while maintaining a tight tension and Su ae, which can radiate calm charisma. Prior to the'Duke City', interest is focused on the performance of Lee I-Dam, who proved a stable acting basics through the films ``I want to hold a straw'' and ``Two Lights: Relumino.''

 

In particular, Lee I-Dam was spotlighted as the protagonist of the film'Lee Mae-mong', which was selected as the best student fantasy short section at the Indie X Film Festival held in Los Angeles, USA in May last year. In the play, she exudes her acting skills by flexibly expressing the complex emotions of the role of Mari, who lived under her blind father, who was blinded by the hunt for goblins. Lee-Dam, who has the same abilities as drawing paper, stimulates viewers' curiosity about how to color the character Kim Yi-seol in'Duke City' and infuse it with vitality and energy.

2021042701000818900049981.jpg

 

Actor and singer Lee Chung-ju is showing off her versatile charm.

 

Lee Chung-joo, who recently met with a burn, is working on a tight schedule that lacks the time to sleep, but his tiredness did not reflect on me. He is appearing in the musical "Great Comet" following the recently ended JTBC's "Phantom Singer All-Star".

 

Lee Chung-ju, who enjoys the joy of new work rather than fear of challenge, is also filming a drama. He took the role of a prosecutor in the JTBC drama'Duke City', which is scheduled to air this year. “It was a dream to appear in dramas and movies while living as a musical actor, and to expand the range of activities,” he said. “It is difficult, but it is a process of taking steps to make the dream come true. He said, “I want to become an actor who performs “long run” rather than hitting “big hit” in the first drama.”
