On April 28, Sports Chosun reported that Jinyoung and Noh Jung Ui will play the lead characters in the new drama “The Witch” (literal title). In response to this report, both Park Jinyoung’s agency BH Entertainment and Noh Jung Ui’s agency Namoo Actors clarified that they received an offer to star in the drama and are positively considering it.
“The Witch” is a drama based on the webtoon of the same name created by Kang Full. It tells the story of a man, who is in love with a “witch” girl. The drama will be directed by Kim Tae Kyun.
Jinyoung was offered the role of Lee Dong Jin, a character who graduated from college with a major in statistics and was hired by Shine Solution as the best data scientist. During his schooldays, he met a girl named Park Mi Jung, who is being smeared with worse rumors. All he could do was be there for her and say that he believed her. However, she leaves school, and he studies statistics in order to tell her, “You’re not a witch.” After a long time, they will meet in the subway, and this time he’s willing to give up his life for her.
Noh Jung Ui was offered the role of Park Mi Jung, a girl enjoying freedom, who dresses in beautiful clothes at 3:30 AM every day and leaves her rooftop home. She works as a translator, using her knowledge of the English language, acquired in childhood. Park Mi Jung’s mother passed away after giving birth to her, and the girl herself attracts attention even when she does nothing. During her schooldays, at some point, male students began to fall in love with her. Perhaps it’s because of her unique and mysterious vibes. As a result, rumors began to circulate about Park Mi Jung, and everyone began to call her a “witch”. Loneliness is now a common occurrence for a girl, but from time to time, she recalls a boy from high school with a bright smile who used to pass by her with his group of friends.
“The Witch” is currently in discussion to be broadcast on Internet platforms, and filming will begin soon.
