Actress Han Ji-eun might team up with actor Lee Dong-wook in a new fantasy series!
On May 14, Korean cable network OCN revealed to various media outlets that they have tapped Han Ji-eun for a role in Bad and Crazy, and from what they know, she is considering the offer. Later in the day, Han’s side confirmed the announcement, saying that the actress is indeed reviewing the proposal.
Bad and Crazy follows a snobbish police detective who, after waking up a hidden persona inside him called K, turns into a hero for social justice and police integrity. The drama is set to be spearhead by producing director (PD) Yoo Seon-dong and screenwriter Kim Sae-bom, the creative minds behind OCN’s current highest-rated drama The Uncanny Counter (2020–2021).
In 2011, Han Ji-eun made her television debut in the drama Lights and Shadows. She then took on supporting roles in 100 Days My Prince (2018) and 12 Nights (2018) before landing her first main role in Be Melodramatic (2019). Previously lauded for her performances in Kkondae Intern (2020), Lovestruck in the City (2020–2021), as well as in the tvN Drama Stage EP, Hi Dorothy (2021), the 30-year-old artist is drawing everyone’s attention on whether or not she will soon decide to work alongside Lee Dong-wook (Tale of the Nine Tailed), who is also in talks to star in the upcoming series.
Bad and Crazy aims to begin filming in the first half of 2021. Its tentative broadcast schedule is said to be after the airing of OCN’s Dark Hole (ongoing) and Voice 4 and in between the seasons of Island.
