Ji Sung has been offered the lead role in SBS’s “Defendant”. This is so exiting, since I didn’t think he would do more than one drama this year due to the birth of his daughter. However, sources confirmed that he is “positively considering the role”.
“Defendant” is a melodrama about a successful prosecutor who wakes up in prison one day, and has no memory of how he got there. Prior to landing in prison, he believed strictly in the law and the justice system. However, after realizing that things don’t seem right, he beings to bend the rules to get to the truth.
The drama is written by Choi Su Jin (“City Hunter”) and PD Jo Young Kwang (“Hyde, Jekyll & Me”) will be leading the production. Thus far, there are no other actors who are currently signed up. This is the first casting news the we are hearing on this project. I am really hoping to see something a little bit better than “Entertainer” from the talented actor.
“Defendants” will premier sometime in November, after “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo” finishes its run.
