Yoo In Na and Son Ho Joon to Join K-drama Terius Behind Me with So Ji Sub

After a one turn of the leading lady roulette it’s settled on a more familiar drama face to join So Ji Sub in his upcoming drama Terius Behind Me. K-actress Yoo In Na is stepping back into leading lady territory after Lee Yoo Young was first offered the role, toggling between first and second female lead in a string of dramas where I’ve always found her engaging in the right roles. Terius Behind Me is a spy romance caper comedy where she plays a wife dealing with her husband’s sudden death and raising a child, only to get involved with her mysterious next door neighbor played by So Ji Sub who is a retired special ops spy. He ends up helping her to expose the big conspiracy behind her husband’s death. Also joining the drama is Son Ho Joon who is taking a second male lead role. The drama will air on MBC with the screenwriter of Shopping King Louie and the PD of special drama Romance Full of Life. Continue reading
