Song Ji-hyo considers playing single mom in new JTBC drama ‘Begin Again’

Song Ji-hyo is reportedly reviewing a casting offer from JTBC’s upcoming drama Begin Again. If she accepts, this will be the actress’s first project in over a year.

The actress was last seen in the 2018 horror-romance Lovely Horribly, which recorded one of the lowest drama TV ratings last year.

Not much is known about the new project, except that it’s an unusual romance involving a single mother who meets four men that pique her interest. Song Ji-hyo has been offered the lead role of a single mother and movie producer named No Ae-jong.

Song Ji-hyo is probably most famous as a regular cast member of one of South Korea’s most popular variety shows, Running Man. She was recently in the news for moving to a new agency, Creative Group ING, and has a thriller film called Daughter due for release later this year.

Begin Again will be directed by SKY Castle junior PD Kim Do-hyung and broadcast in the first half of 2020.

Indoor Enthusiast (Esha) is a staff writer at Kdramapal. She is responsible for bringing all the latest happenings in Kdramaland, as well as features and recaps of currently airing dramas, to the readers of the site. As a gender studies student, she loves analyzing K-dramas through the lens of gender politics and social justice. You're most likely to find her droning on and on about how Ji Hae-soo from It's Okay That's Love and Sung Bora from Reply 1988 are the best heroines to ever grace our screens. Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First. She lives in India, spends all her free time reading books, and would love nothing more than to meet Gong Hyo-jin and sign away her life's earnings to the actress.
