Kim Hee-jung confirmed to appear in JTBC’s romantic series ‘Number of Cases’

Actress Kim Hee-jung has confirmed her appearance in JTBC’s upcoming drama Number of Cases (literal title).

JTBC’s new romantic drama Number of Cases will feature stars Ong Seong-wu and Shin Ye-eun. It will follow the love story of Lee Soo and Kyung Woo-yeon, who have been hiding their feelings for each other over the course of a decade. Because of a misunderstanding, they are not able to tell each other how they feel.

Ong Seong-wu will play the role of Lee Soo, a good-looking photographer with impressive skills. He is often mistaken as a model and is quite sure of himself. Starring opposite him is Shin Ye-eun, who will play Kyung Woo-yeon, a calligrapher who has the opposite personality of him. Ong was last seen in the 2019 JTBC series At Eighteen, while Shin last starred in the 2020 KBS2 drama Welcome.

Kim Hee-jung will play the mother of Lee Soo. As a famous painter, she shows off her elegant appearance and refined attitude despite her middle age. Kim is expected to capture the audience’s attention with her stable and delicate acting on top of an elegant appearance.

Kim has performed many various roles in notable series such as My Daughter, Geum Sa-wol (2015), Six Flying Dragons (2015), The Secret Life of My Secretary (2019), and most recently, Mystic Pop-up Bar, which ended in June.

The actress is also in talks for a new TVN drama Tale of the Nine Tailed, which is scheduled to broadcast in the second quarter of the year.

Number of Cases, also known as Chances of Going from Friends to Lovers, will be directed by Choi Sung-beom and written by Cho Seung-hee. It aims to premiere in the second half of 2020 and targets the weekend runtime of every Friday and Saturday.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
