While there’s a notion that the South Korean film industry is being dominated by movies about men, is dramaland heading the opposite reaction?
Amid the spate of women-centric dramas recently (which is a welcome news, of course), there’s another one in the works which is courting Kim Hee-sun (Woman of Dignity) to play as lead. The tvN drama is titled Room Nine which is a story of a lawyer and a death row inmate who switch souls. Apparently, these two characters look identical because Kim Hee-sun’s reported to take on a dual role. I’m enjoying Lee Da-hae’s approach to her twin role in Nice Witch, but I’m not very keen on seeing two characters looking alike especially if they’re not blood-related.
Room Nine is looking at a September premiere date.
