Shin Hyun Been and Song Joong Ki may be meeting in a new drama!
On June 2, an industry representative reported, “Shin Hyun Been has been cast for a leading role in the new JTBC drama ‘Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son’ (literal title).”
In response to the report, Shin Hyun Been’s agency Yooborn Company commented, “She has received a casting offer for the drama ‘Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son’ and is currently reviewing [the offer].”
Based on a hit web novel of the same name, “Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son” is about someone who was killed after being framed for embezzlement by a chaebol family who he was loyal to for over 10 years. He is reborn as the youngest son of the chaebol family and plans revenge as he works to gradually take over. As announced previously, Song Joong Ki is in talks to play the male lead Jin Do Joon. Earlier in the week, it was revealed that Lee Sung Min is also considering a role in the drama.
Shin Hyun Been has been offered the role of prosecutor Seo Min Young who works at the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ Office. She is someone who is willing to evade or break the law in order for justice to be served. Seo Min Young and Jin Do Joon will be involved in a relationship that walks the line between love and hatred.
Shin Hyun Been has previously impressed with her acting in films such as “Confidential Assignment,” “Seven Years of Night,” “Sunset in My Hometown,” and “Beasts Clawing at Straws.” After receiving much love as Jang Gyeo Ul in “Hospital Playlist,” she is currently gearing up for the second season, which premieres on June 17, and is also filming for a new drama with Go Hyun Jung.
Likely to air on JTBC, “Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son” will be written by Kim Tae Hee of “Sungkyunkwan Scandal” and directed by Jung Dae Yoon of “She Was Pretty” and “W.” Filming is scheduled to begin in the second half of 2021.
