The news was delivered by Nana’s agency Pledis Entertainment on May 28, confirming that the actress will indeed appear in the drama.
Glitch follows one woman’s desperate journey to find her boyfriend who mysteriously disappeared into thin air after flashes of strange lights happened one night. In order to find him, she asks for help from a community of unidentified flying objects (UFO) enthusiasts.
Jeon takes center stage as Hong Ji-hyo, a woman whose longtime lover suddenly disappeared right after they both decided to take their relationship to the next level.
With the help of a community of UFO watchers, they investigate the disappearance of her boyfriend Lee Si-kook, to be played by Lee Dong-hwi (Pegasus Market, SF8: Manxin), and together, they discover a mysterious secret.
Meanwhile, Nana will play Heo Bo-ra, a struggling Twitch streamer and YouTuber with a small number of online followers. As a full-fledged keyboard warrior, she rarely shows her face, and she stays in one corner of her room, editing her content all day long. She is also obsessed with extraterrestrial mysteries.
After debuting in the entertainment industry as a singer in 2009, Nana also decided to pursue a path in acting. She was able to land roles in many dramas such as The Good Wife (2016), Kill It (2019), Justice (2019), and Memorials (2020).
Netflix also released on Friday, May 28, the stills of both Nana and Jeon Yeo-been from the drama’s script reading session.
Glitch is produced by Studio 329 and is a collaborative project between director Roh Deok of SF8: Manxin (2020) and screenwriter Jin Han-sae of Netflix’s Extracurricular (2020).
