When one door closes another opens, or when one star passes another pops up. Kim Rae Won is in talks for genetics based thriller K-drama Luca, which got press early on when Ji Chang Wook was considering it. He’s since passed and may take a rom-com opposite Kim Yoo Jung, whereas Kim Rae Won is now considering Luca and if accepted will mark his K-drama return two years after Black Knight which remains so weird to me overall. Luca stands for Last Universal Common Ancestor and is all about DNA and genes so it is a fresh topic for K-dramas to tackle. I’ll keep an eye out on the casting once confirmed for the drama is scheduled to be a tight 12-episode offering.
