Actress Yoona is most likely to star alongside Ji Chang-wook in the anticipated Friday-Saturday serial ‘K2’ though there has not been any official confirmation so far.
“YoonA will be appearing in tvN’s new drama. She was contemplating after receiving the first offer and said that it would be difficult but her casting has been achieved,” Soompi quoted its source. Reportedly, she is favorably considering it.
Soompi also reported that, “If she accepts her role, she will be portraying Ko Anna who is a recluse/hermit and hidden daughter of an important leader. Her father is a presidential candidate while her mother is a former famous star. Growing up surrounded by great public interest resulted in psychological trauma. Thus, she suffers from anthrophobia (fear of people) and experiences panic when seeing flashing lights. She ends up returning from France to Korea due to a photo taken by chance.”
KDramaStars reported that “K2” will tell the story of a secret service man who loved his country and his colleague only to get betrayed by them both and the hidden daughter of a presidential candidate who wants to use love as revenge. The drama will also reveal the secrets of the potential First Lady. Song Yoon-ah, Jo Sung-ha, Lee Jung-jin and Kim Kap-soo have been confirmed, Soompi reported. “K2” is written by Jang Hyeok-rin and directed by Kwak Jeong-hwan. It is still in discussion about the organization but September seems likely.
PD Kwak Jung Hwan of “Slave Hunters” (also known as “Chuno) and “Basketball” and writer Jang Hyuk Rin of “Yong Pal” will be heading this drama. HB Entertainment will be the production company as well.
“K2” will air in September following the run of “The Good Wife.”
