Dang, KBS is aiming for the big guns as K-ent is reporting that the network is eagerly wooing Kim Hye Soo for the female lead of its upcoming legal drama Hyena. The drama has signed on male lead Joo Ji Hoon and reached out to Song Hye Kyo for the female lead early on. She was interested but ultimately passed for personal reasons. Now Kim Hye Soo may sign on to a drama about lawyers but not set in courtrooms, instead dealing with how lawyers in South Korea use the law as a tool of survival among the powerful and rich. If she accepts it will be her first drama since Signal in 2016 while Joo Ji Hoon has been filming the second season of Netflix drama Kingdom which should wrap soon. Directing Hyena is the PD of Painter of the Wind and You From Another Star with a scheduled airing date in late 2019.
Kim hye soo is anyday better actor than shk. I am excited for this pairing.
She is a little bit old for him, isn’t she.
Nope. Have you watched Search WWW yet? ISJ 40 with hottie JKY 26. LDH 34 with cutie LJW 21. They look so lovey-dovey together. There is nothing wrong with a younger guy dating an attractive mature woman. JJH is already 37, he is not that young himself! Agree with @Mulan – KHS is a much better actress.
I watched ‘Familyhood’ with KHS as the drama Queen diva and she is a barrel of laughs so I’m anticipating this drama because I also like JJH. Finally a pair that will compliment each other so I just hope the writing is on par with the talent secured otherwise it will be another drama to save for a rainy day. KHS another actress I’ve discovered by accident as one to watch. She’s phenomenal.
She is a versatile actress. She’ll nail it.
