The casting for upcoming tvN Fri-Sat drama Chicago Typewriter just churned out some faster than fiction twists and turns. Within 24 hours the casting of the leading lady went from the I-can’t-believe it rumor of Seolhyun from AOA to sigh-of-relief offer out to Im Soo Jung. Seolhyun is super pretty but her acting has yet to impress me, whereas dramas have been trying to lure movie actress Im Soo Jung back to the small screen for over a decade and it would be fantastic if she ends her twelve year drought and comes back with Chicago Typewriter opposite likely male lead Yoo Ah In. Also considering offers to join the cast are Go Kyung Pyo and the super adorable Secretary Kim from Goblin Jo Woo Jin.
Chicago Typewriter has time to finalize the cast as it takes over the time slot in March from Tomorrow With You. Looks like Park Shin Hye has definitively turned down the offer to be the leading lady but if Im Soo Jung accepts it won’t be a downgrade and will provide a fresh pairing for drama viewers.
