[edaily star in reporter Kim Yunji] Scriptwriter Song Jae-jung will return through MBC.
On 4 Mar a related personnel from MBC has indicated that “ ‘W’ is confirmed to be the drama following MBC’s 'Lucky Romance’ which will be released in May.” 'W’ is a story about a venture capitalist and a female surgeon. Even though both of them live in Seoul in 2016, they seem like living in two different worlds. It is a legend full of suspenses which intertwines between reality and illusion. Writer Song Jae-jung has derived great fun from time-travel TV series like 'Nine: Nine Time Travels’ and 'Queen In-hyun’s Man’ on tvN. Hence her new work 'W’ is being well anticipated.
The first two episodes of the script have been released. Both male and female leading roles, Lee Jong-suk and Han Hyo-joo, are popular choices. Lee Jong-suk is now shooting Chinese-Korean TV drama 'Jade Lover’ in China while Han Hyo-joo’s movie 'Haeohwa’ will be on screen in April. Once confirmed, the two episodes which have been released will go into production.
Writer Song Jae-jung who penned tvN’s 'The Three Musketeers’, MBC’s 'High Kick!’ and Director Jung Dae-yoon who directed MBC’s 'She Was Pretty’ last year have found common interest together. This drama will be broadcasted in mid-July this year.
