According to Star News coverage on the 22nd, Yeri Han will appear in MBC's new Friday-Saturday drama 'This Close Traitor' (planned by Namgoong Seong-woo, directed by Song Yeon-hwa, written by Han A-young).

 

'This Intimate Traitor' is a family psychological thriller drama depicting the dilemma that Korea's best profiler Jang Tae-soo (played by Han Seok-gyu) faces when he learns his daughter's secret related to the murder crime he is investigating. Yeri Han played a continuing role in the play. Lee Yeon is a police officer who sincerely respects profiler Jang Tae-su.

 

Yeri Han will return to the small screen through 'This Close Traitor' for the first time in three years since the tvN drama 'Home Ta Hoon', which aired in 2021.

Sweet Home 2' Chae Won-bin, Han Seok-gyu's only daughter... Appearance in new MBC thriller

 

BF.35597571.1.jpg

 

Actress Chae Won-bin is collaborating with 'Grand Senior' Han Seok-gyu. Chae Won-bin, who emerged as a trend as a result of Ten Asia's coverage on the 17th, will appear on MBC's 'This Close Traitor' (planned by Namgoong Seong-woo, directed by Song Yeon-hwa, written by Han A-young).

 

‘This Close Traitor’ is a family psychological thriller drama depicting the dilemma faced by Korea’s best profiler when he learns his daughter’s secret related to the murder crime he is investigating. Han Seok-gyu was cast as Jang Tae-soo, the best profiler in Korea and the father who raises his only daughter alone. Chae Won-bin plays the role of Han Seok-gyu's only daughter in the play.

 

Jang Tae-soo is an established figure who voluntarily walked the path of a criminal behavior analyst from a time when even the word profiling was unfamiliar, and is a person who has gained unrivaled respect and trust within the police organization. Expectations are high to see the chemistry between Jang Tae-soo, a character who is perfect and respected professionally, but alienated as a husband and father, and his daughter.

 

Chae Won-bin made her debut with the web drama ‘Secret Secret’, followed by the web drama ‘Twenty Twenty’ and the movie ‘Witch (魔女) Part 2.’ In many works such as ‘The Other One’ and tvN’s ‘Usa and Joy’, she has built up her filmography by perfectly portraying various characters.

 

Last year, starting with the movie 'Shuttle, the Strongest Shuttle', she left a mark on viewers by playing an active role in four works, including KBS' 'Pure Boxer', KBS 'Drama Special 2023 - Confession Attack', and Netflix's 'Sweet Home Season 2'.

 

Currently, Chae Won-bin is about to release Netflix's 'Sweet Home Season 3' and the movie 'Shuttle 2 (working title)', and she has additionally confirmed her next two films and is preparing for a powerful leap forward again this year.
