The stellar cast of tvN‘s next Fri-Sat drama The K2 has assembled for script reading, but one pretty young face is conspicuously missing. Present for the table read is leading man Ji Chang Wook, making his K-drama return after the cult hit drama Healer, but his leading lady Yoona of SNSD was not able to attend since she had not officially accepted the role at that time, thereby depriving fans of that first look opinion of seeing them side-by-side. The other leading lady Song Yoon Ah was there and she plays a powerful woman puppet master type character manipulating those around her as she tries to get her husband elected as the next president of South Korea. She hires Ji Chang Wook as a bodyguard and tries to deal with Yoona who is the bastard daughter of her husband with a movie actress. The K2 takes over in September after The Good Wife wraps up.
Also present for the script reading are second male lead Lee Jung Jin, veterans Jo Sung Ha and Kim Gab Soo, and actresses Son Tae Young and Shin Dong Mi. The K2 will be directed by PD Kwak Jung Hwan of Chuno and Runaway: Plan B fame and written by the screenwriter of Yongpal.
