Veteran K-actress Choi Ji Woo is no stranger to suitcases, adorably packing for her trip on variety show Grandpas Over Flowers two years ago, and last year packed up metaphorically to go back to her college days with Second Time Twenty Again. Now she becomes the titular Woman with a Suitcase, having confirmed her casting as the female lead for the upcoming MBC Mon-Tues drama after long running revenge saga Monster wraps up. Choi Ji Woo plays a fallen law firm office manager who re-creates her new identity as a dogged lawyer who carries around all her documents in a suitcase to solve crime and punish the criminals. The role sounds quirky even if it’s a turnaround from the set up of Divorce Lawyers in Love. Joo Jin Mo has signed on to play her daddy long legs, a media company president who helps Choi Ji Woo behind the scenes, and obviously stewing up romance on the side.
Rounding out the cast as seconds leads will be idol-turned-actor Lee Joon and singer-turned-actress Jeon Hye Bin, both of whom have shined more as actors than during their singing-dancing previous life. The drama will be penned by the writer of Gapdong and Royal Family.
