The novel-based Lingerie Girls’ Generation has secured Do-hee (Mirror of the Witch) and Chae Seo-jin (Will You Be There, My Brilliant Life) in its cast.
Do-hee will play the role of a fierce school gang leader who is the mortal enemy of Bona and her friends. Not much details about Chae Seo-jin’s role have been released though aside from that her character’s name is Hye-joo.
WJSN’s Bona (The Best Hit) and CNBlue’s Lee Jong-hyun (My Only Love Song, Orange Marmalade) have previously received offers to take on this upcoming show’s lead roles, and are reportedly reviewing it positively.
This coming-of-age novel is primarily set in a girls’ high school in 1970s Daegu, and centers on friendships, love, and mystery concerning the rising number of sexual assaults happening in Daegu, as well as the disappearances of several female workers at a local toy factory.
This eight-episode drama is set to air in September following School 2017.
