Well respected K-drama screenwriter Noh Hee Kyung is nothing but consistent in delivering quality television narratives even as the production and ratings landscape has changed. She’s resisted the trendy for nearly two decades and continues to tell stories deeper than most of her counterparts. It’s quite a mark of acclaim to star in a Noh Hee Kyung penned drama and the next leading lady to get the tap is none other than quirky Jung Yumi. She’s in talks to star in Noh Hee Kyung’s upcoming police themed drama Live, which will be directed by frequent Noh Hee Kyung collaboration PD Kim Kyu Tae. This will mark Jung Yumi’s first K-drama in three years since she did Discovery of Love with Eric in 2014. The drama is slated to air in the latter half of 2017 and is the first time Noh Hee Kyung will write a police drama.
Noh Hee Kyung’s last drama was Dear My Friends on tvN which won her the best screenwriting Baeksang recently. It wasn’t directed by PD Kim Kyu Tae, who did her last four dramas prior with It’s Okay, It’s Love, That Winter, the Wind Blows, Padam Padam, and The World We Live In.
