Lee El in discussions to join drama by ‘My Mister’ writer

Actress Lee El is being wooed to join a new drama!

An official from the actress’ agency DPlan Entertainment announced on April 22, “Lee El is discussing the offer to appear in the new drama My Liberation Diary.” Lee Min-ki (Oh! Master), Kim Ji-won (Arthdal Chronicles), and Son Seok-koo (Designated Survivor: 60 Days) are reportedly also in talks for the series.

My Liberation Diary is described as a human drama that will tell the story of three siblings: Hee, Ki-jeong, and Mi-jeong. The drama is under JTBC and will air in 2022.

If she accepts the offer, this will be Lee El’s small-screen comeback following her last appearance in When the Devil Calls Your Name back in 2019. The actress is also known for her roles in the popular dramas Monster (2016), Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (also known as Goblin, 2016–2017), Black (2017), and A Korean Odyssey (2017–2018).

My Liberation Diary is a new work by award-winning screenwriter Park Hae-young, who penned the dramas Living Among the Rich (2011–2012), Another Miss Oh (2016), and My Mister (2018). She will be joined by producing director (PD) Kim Seok-yoon of Law School (2021), whom she has worked with in Old Miss Diary (2004–2005), a series that was adapted into a movie in 2006.

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.
