Jeon Do Yeon and Ryu Jun Yeol Confirmed for K-drama Human Disqualification with Additional Cast Members Joining

The confirmation for upcoming K-drama Human Disqualification feels a harem for the male lead, lol. I’m teasing but it’s five actresses and one actor so far, so lucky him. K-ent has announced Jeon Do Yeon and Ryu Jun Yeol for the drama Human Disqualification, and yes their big age difference is intentional as the female lead is in her 40’s and the male lead is in his 20’s. Joining them in supporting roles are Kim Hyo Jin, Son Na Eun, Park Ji Young, and Jo Eun Ji so lots of talented ladies in addition to award winning Jeon Do Yeon. Even more impressive is the drama is the first television project of award winning director Hur Jin Ho, he’s written drama screenplays before but he’s been focused on directing movies only until now. And he’s also working with screenwriter Kim Ji Hye who is also doing her first television work, she’s won awards for tons of movie scripts. The drama will start filming soon for a later 2021 airing though the network has not been confirmed yet.
