On November 6, MBC said that it is finalizing the cast for their upcoming drama 365: A Year Against Destiny, which is courting Nam Ji-hyun and Lee Joon-hyuk (The Lies Within) to play the lead roles.
365: A Year Against Destiny is described as a fantasy thriller involving people who can choose to travel back in time, exactly one year from the present. As a result, they get caught in many unexpected situations. The story is adapted from a Japanese thriller novel called Repeat, which has also a Japanese TV adaptation.
Nam Ji-hyun has been offered the role of a webtoon author who likes to keep to herself and is working on “Hidden Killers”, a webtoon that has been running for three years.
If Nam Ji-hyun accepts, this will be her first drama since 100 Days My Prince (2018), where she appeared opposite Do Kyung-soo. The historical series went on to become one of the highest-rated cable dramas of all time in South Korea.
365: A Year Against Destiny will be directed by PD Kim Kyung-hee of Lucky Romance. It is aiming for a March 2020 premiere.
