This drama just went from promising to potential hot mess with one casting, but then again she might surprise most everyone out there. Jin Se Yeon has just been cast in the titular lead role in acclaimed sageuk PD Lee Byung Hoon‘s 2016 weekend drama Prison Flower. This is the drama that would reunite Lee Byung Hoon, who directed Dae Jang Geum, Yi San, Dong Yi, and Horse Doctor, with the screenwriter Choi Wan Kyu who wrote All In, Jumong, Kingdom of the Wind, Swallow the Sun, and Triangle. Joining Jin Se Yeon will be veteran leading man Go Soo who hardly does any dramas these days. This will mark his drama return after Empire of Gold in 2013, but before that it was Will it Snow in Christmas way back in 2009. Prison Flower is slated for 50-episode and will air on MBC next year taking over for My Daughter Geum Sa Wol.
Prison Flower is a Joseon era sageuk and tells the life story of the leading lady, who was born in a prison cell. She grows up to fight for the downtrodden who come to the capital to seek justice.The drama will start filming in February of 2016.
