Jo In-sung, Cha Tae-hyun in talks along with Han Hyo-joo for new drama ‘Moving’

Moving (working title), an upcoming series by award-winning director Mo Wan-il, is currently in the works and has offered lead roles to popular actors Jo In-sung, Cha Tae-hyun, and Han Hyo-joo.

An official from Jo In-sung’s agency IOK Company said on the 9th, “It is true that he received a proposal and is reviewing it.” Similarly, Blossom Entertainment stated on behalf of Cha Tae-hyun, “He got an offer to appear and has put it under consideration.”

Moving will center on a high school student and his parents who have been keeping a secret from the people around them. It is based on a webtoon of the same name by popular manhwa (Korean term for comics) artist Kang Full.

After gaining increased attention for his role in the series Something Happened in Bali (2004), Jo In-sung went on to expand his acting repertoire with various dramas, including Spring Days (2005), That Winter, The Wind Blows (2013), and It’s Okay, That’s Love (2014). If he decides to join in, he will be making a highly anticipated comeback since his guest appearance in Dear My Friends in 2016.

Meanwhile, Cha Tae-hyun, who rose to international popularity for his performance in the film My Sassy Girl (2001), has also built a great reputation for his natural comedic acting in the series The Producers (2015), Hit the Top (2017), Matrimonial Chaos (2018), and Team Bulldog: Off-Duty Investigation (2020). Should he choose to accept the project, Cha is expected to show the same remarkable performance he has done in previous projects as well as share a strong synergy with his co-stars.

Earlier, W actress Han Hyo-joo was reportedly courted to star as a female lead. If negotiations push through, she is also set to mark her comeback to the small screen after five years.

Moving will be helmed by Mo Wan-il, the critically renowned director behind South Korea’s highest-rated cable drama, The World of the Married (2020). It is currently in the process of casting and targets to air in 2021.
