This sounds like a promising match up even if the entire premise is yet to be revealed. Park Shin Hye has reportedly been offered the female lead role for an early spring 2017 tvN drama, which if she accepts will be her first cable drama role in four years since 2013’s Flower Boy Next Door. That drama was a turning point in her acting evolution, IMO, and I’d be thrilled if she accepted this next chance to work with tvN and a seasoned screenwriter to boot.
Offering Park Shin Hye the female lead role is screenwriter Jin Soo Won who wrote my faves Kill Me Heal Me and My Sister in Law is 19, but is best known for being the screenwriter of mega hit sageuk The Moon Embraces the Sun. Jin Soo Won’s next drama is called Chicago Typewriter and it has zero context for me so I can’t even begin to fathom what it’s about. But the name is cool, and if Jin Soo Won can make multiple personality disorder makjang drama KMHM work then she’s got my vote of confidence in her next drama.
Chicago Typewriter is slated to be a tvN Fri-Sat drama, following Tomorrow With You with Shin Mina and Lee Je Hoon, which takes over for Goblin. Directing will be the PD for On the Way to the Airport.
