Actors E Ji-ah, Lee Sang-yoon, Jang Hee-jin, Park Ki-woong and Bong Tae-gyu will star in tvN’s upcoming drama series “Lady” (translated), which popular writer Kim Soon-ok participates as a creator of the show.

The cast would have started rotating. The story revolves around a woman who must become the country’s first lady in order to protect her family.

Director Choi Young-hoon of SBS drama series “One the Woman” (2021) and “Good Casting” (2020) and writer Hyun Ji-min, a member of Kim’s writing team, will co-direct from the Serie. Kim will participate as a creator and oversee the script writing process and story development.

Kim is responsible for such popular hits as SBS’s “The Penthouse” (2020-21), “The Last Empress” (2018) and “Temptation of a Wife” (2008-09). His specialty lies in makjang storylines, a genre with narratives so suspenseful and immoral that they are considered ridiculous.

E Ji-ah will play main protagonist Hong Tae-ra, a woman who seems to have it all – a loving family of three with her husband and daughter – but she has no memory of her past. When she begins to remember, her perfect life is shattered and she is drawn into a whirlwind of chaos, fighting for survival and revenge.

Lee Sang-yoon plays Tae-ra’s husband, resourceful entrepreneur Pyo Jae-hyun who becomes a presidential candidate.

The series will air next year.
