Kim Jung Hyun In Talks For His 1st Drama Since His Hiatus

Kim Jung Hyun may soon be making his return to the small screen!

On May 13, Kim Jung Hyun’s agency Story J Company clarified reports that the actor was set to star in the upcoming drama “Season of Kkok Du.”

The agency stated, “Kim Jung Hyun has received an offer to appear in ‘Season of Kkok Du,’ and he is currently in talks for the drama.”

“Season of Kkok Du” is a fantasy medical drama about a high-ranking grim reaper named Kkok Du, who is the only being to exist in the underworld. Every 99 years, the cold and cruel Kkok Du must take a break from his job in the underworld and spend 49 days in the mortal realm—and this time, he winds up inhabiting the body of the human Do Jin Woo. While living as Do Jin Woo, he meets Han Gye Jeol, a female doctor who has the mysterious ability to order Kkok Du around.

Kim Jung Hyun has been offered the leading role of the titular Kkok Du, and if he accepts, it will mark his first drama role since starring in “Mr. Queen” a year and a half ago.

Earlier this year, Kim Jung Hyun was also cast in an upcoming independent film, marking the end of his hiatus following his controversies over his contract with his former agency, his behavior on the set of the 2018 drama “Time,” and his relationship with actress Seo Ye Ji. After resolving his contract issues, the actor signed with Story J Company in September of last year.

Filming of MBC’s new drama “Kkokdu’s Gye Jeol” (literal title, also meaning “The Season of Kkokdu”) has been put on hold.

On October 31, an official from the production team of “Kkokdu’s Gye Jeol” shared that filming is put on hold for the time being and will resume at a later date.

“Kkokdu’s Gye Jeol” is a fantasy romance which tells the story of a grim reaper named Kkokdu (Kim Jung Hyun) who comes down to this world to punish humans every 99 years. Kkokdu meets Han Gye Jeol (Im Soo Hyang), a doctor with mysterious abilities, and starts working as a visiting doctor.

It was reported that actor Lee Ji Han, who passed away during this weekend’s Itaewon tragedy, took on the role of Jung Yi Deun, the ex-boyfriend of Han Gye Jeol, and was filming until recently. There are still remaining scenes for the character that have not been filmed, but no decision has been made on the replacement of the actor yet. The production team plans to visit Lee Ji Han’s funeral home today.

On the night of October 29, at least 154 people died—with many others injured—after being crushed in a large crowd during Halloween celebrations in the Itaewon neighborhood of Seoul. The Korean government has designated a national mourning period until November 5.

We offer our deepest condolences to Lee Ji Han’s friends and family during this painful time. May he rest in peace.

Im Soo Hyang Writes Heartfelt Letter Mourning The Passing Of Her Co-Star Lee Ji Han

dummy.jpeg?s=900x600&e=t

by S. Nam
 

Im Soo Hyang has shared a letter following the passing of her co-star Lee Ji Han.

Earlier on October 30, Lee Ji Han’s agency 935 Entertainment confirmed that the actor had passed away due to the tragedy in Itaewon. Lee Ji Han’s upcoming drama “Kkokdu’s Gye Jeol” (literal title, also meaning “The Season of Kkokdu”) starring Kim Jung Hyun and Im Soo Hyang was put on hold following the news. It was reported that Lee Ji Han had taken on the role of Jung Yi Deun, the ex-boyfriend of Han Gye Jeol (Im Soo Hyang), and was filming until recently.

On November 1, Im Soo Hyang took to Instagram Stories to express her feelings. Her full letter is translated below:

Ji Han, you have to be happy in a better place.

Yesterday, I was supposed to film the whole day with you, but after hearing the news, we all gathered at your wake. No one could say anything for a long time, and we just sat in a daze. I felt so cold, sad, and miserable after you were taken away so soon as you were just starting because I knew so well how hard you worked and how you wanted to do a good job..And your parents held my hands and told me how you went home and happily bragged to them that I praised you for doing a good job, and I think I cried for a long while because I was sorry that I didn’t take care of you more and that it was a shame that I didn’t say one more nice thing or words of encouragement.

I am so hurt to let my colleague go first. The team and I will all work even harder for your share while thinking of you so that you can be proud from that place, and I hope you will be at peace now.

To all those who became stars through this Itaewon tragedy, may you all rest in peace.

More details have been shared about Im Soo Hyang and Kim Jung Hyun’s new drama—including its January premiere!

MBC’s upcoming drama “Kkokdu’s Gye Jeol” (literal title, also meaning “The Season of Kkokdu”) is a fantasy romance which tells the story of a grim reaper named Kkokdu who comes down to this world to punish humans every 99 years. Kkokdu meets Han Gye Jeol, a doctor with mysterious abilities, and starts working as a visiting doctor.

Kim Jung Hyun will take on the role of Kkokdu, the eccentric guide of the underworld, while Im Soo Hyang will play Han Gye Jeol, a skillful doctor with bad luck that lead her to graduate from the medical school that is ranked last in the nation.

On top of the two main leads, the drama also confirmed the lineup of talented actors including Dasom, An Woo Yeon, Kim In Kwon, and Cha Chung Hwa. Dasom will play golden girl Tae Jung Won, and An Woo Yeon will take on the role of Han Gye Jeol’s younger brother and detective Han Chul who can’t tolerate injustice. Kim In Kwon will portray the oblivious and clueless god Ok Shin who takes care of Kkokdu, while Cha Chung Hwa plays the exact opposite character, the intuitive god Gak Shin. As the phrase “ok shin gak shin” means “quarreling” in Korean, viewers can already anticipate the kind of chemistry the two veteran actors will present.
