Ji Jin Hee In Talks For New Drama Based On Japanese Mystery Novel

Dec 21, 2020

Ji Jin Hee might be making his return to the small screen!

On December 21, DongA.com reported that there was an upcoming Korean drama adaptation of Norizuki Rintaro’s novel “The Tragedy of One” (“Ichi no Higeki” in Japanese). “The Tragedy of One” is a mystery novel about a tragedy that occurs between two families when the detective main character ends up being the third party who provides an alibi to the police’s strongest suspect. The working title for the Korean drama adaptation is “Birth of a Tragedy.”

The drama is still in the early stages of development and casting is still ongoing. DongA.com reported that Ji Jin Hee was one of the actors in talks to play the male lead. Later, a source from his agency stated, “He has received a casting offer and is positively reviewing it.”

tvN is reported to be a strong candidate for the drama’s broadcasting rights. Ji Jin Hee previously starred in the tvN remake of the American show “Designated Survivor.” The actor was also confirmed earlier this year to be starring in a JTBC remake of the BBC drama “Undercover,” which will air sometime in 2021.

Ji Jin Hee, Yoon Se Ah, and Kim Hye Eun have been cast in tvN’s new drama “The Road: Tragedy of One” (literal translation).

“The Road: Tragedy of One” is about the terrible ambitions, secrets, guilt, and salvation swirling around “Royal the Hills,” the place of residence for the top 1 percent of Korean society. Based on the Japanese mysterynovel “The Tragedy of One,” the drama had originally been titled “Birth of a Tragedy.”

The tragedy begins when a terrible incident disrupts the peace inside an elegant and exclusive sanctuary. All of the people get swept up in this incident, followed by unexpected twists and turns in their lives.

Ji Jin Hee has been cast as Baek Soo Hyun, a national news anchor who is trusted by the public. He is a journalist whose reports are taken as gospel truth and is a universally praised and respected figure. But on the other side, he’s a cold man who will not stick at any means or method to get what he wants.

Yoon Se Ah has been cast as Seo Eun Soo, the wife of Baek Soo Hyun, and the daughter of the chairman of Je Kang Group, who controls the political world of Korea. She is known as a wise and graceful wife and a popular artist of miniatures, as well as an ideal mother who will do anything to protect her precious life and family. Despite all her dignity, she will be greatly shaken by the tragic incident that takes place before her eyes.

Kim Hye Eun has been cast as Cha Seo Young, a newsroom announcer. She is honest about her ambitions and she desires to live an elegant and beautiful life that matches her beautiful looks. Even though she has the perfect job, the perfect grades, the perfect resumé, the perfect face, and even the perfect family, she always feels empty and wants more.

Ji Jin-hee, Yoon Se-ah, Kim Hye-eun confirmed for new tvN drama

by tineybeanie

https://d263ao8qih4miy.cloudfront.net/wp-content/uploads/2021/03/image-jinjihjinjin.jpg
Ji Jin-hee, Yoon Se-ah, Kim Hye-eun

Upcoming tvN drama The Road: 1st Tragedy has cast Ji Jin-hee (Designated Survivor: 60 Days, Undercover), Yoon Se-ah (SKY Castle, Snowdrop), and Kim Hye-eun (Graceful Friends). This drama is about the greed and secrets of a residential community where only the top 1% of society reside. Finding a conscience and redemption will be large arcs that the story pursues.

 

Ji Jin-hee plays the “Nation’s Anchorman” Baek Soo-hyun. He’s a very trusted news reporter, to the point where his words are taken as truth without question. However, not many people know that he’s actually a cold man who will use whatever means necessary to get what he wants.

On the other hand, Yoon Se-ah plays Ji Jin-hee’s wife, the daughter of an influential chaebol family that holds the political world tightly in their grasp. Her character is a popular miniature artist who is known for being a graceful wife and wise mother. She’s the key that holds their family together and protects their daily lives, but her unshakeable dignity begins breaking down at the tragic events that begin to unfold.

 

Finally, Kim Hye-eun plays a newsroom announcer as well. She’s true to her ambitions to live life as flamboyantly and extravagantly as she makes her life appear to be. Despite having a job, schooling, experience, and beauty that anyone would be envious of, she always feels empty and hungry for more.

I like the cast and the plot is similar with many dramas about very rich people. There is a mistery, a tragedy in the place of residence for the top 1 percent of Korean society, Kim Hye Eun`s character is like Cheon Seo Jin, Kim So yeon`s character in Penthouse but I really hope it is nothing like this crazy makjang drama. It is alright if we have makjang elements, but I hope it is not a telenovela, soap opera kind of writing, with over the top ridiculous things like Penthouse . If it is the same, I won`t watch at all. We`ll see.

Ominous teaser for The Road: Tragedy of One revealed

by tineybeanie

 

jjin-yoonse0.jpg

On a night of torrential rain, a cruel, tragic incident starts a cycle of secrets and deception in The Road: Tragedy of One. The recently released teaser for the drama stars Ji Jin-hee (Undercover, Move to Heaven), Yoon Se-ah (Forest of Secrets 2), and Kim Hye-eun (Graceful Friends).

 

Through a door just barely cracked open, we get a peek at the lives of the residents of Royal The Hill, a luxury estate where only the top 1% of Korea can reside. Our first glance is at Ji Jin-hee playing Baek Soo-hyun, the most trusted news anchor and reporter in Korea. He stares at his phone anxiously, as though waiting for an important call.

 

 

Similarly, Yoon Se-ah, playing Baek Soo-hyun’s wife, Seo Eun-soo, also looks apprehensive about something impending. On the other hand, Kim Hye-eun playing a fellow Royal The Hill resident, looks at the camera challengingly, almost as if she’s daring the future to come.

Her character is a haughty nighttime news announcer that has it all: looks, wealth, and a home life. Copy appears onscreen: “When a moment swallows the truth…” We see that all three characters are actually gathered together in the same room, and then the copy continues, “…a tragedy begins.” All three characters look up toward the ceiling. At this moment, Baek Soo-hyun’s phone rings, caller ID unknown.

tvN’s Wednesday-Thursday mystery drama The Road: Tragedy of One, written by Yoon Hee-jung and directed by Kim Noh-won, will air starting August 4.
