Jo Jung Seok and Hyeri Confirmed for Late Fall MBC Drama Two Cops

For good or bad this casting is set for upcoming MBC late fall drama Two Cops. The drama will star Jo Jung Seok and idol-actress Hyeri, taking over the Mon-Tues slot from 20th Century Boy and Girl. Han Ji Min was originally in talks for the leading lady role but that fell through and in stepped Hyeri, taking on her first drama in 2017 after doing Entertainer in 2016 and the hit Answer Me 1988 which started in late 2015 and ending January the following year.
