Seo Hyun-jin (You Are My Spring), Hwang In-yeop (True Beauty), Bae In-hyuk (My Roommate is a Gumiho) and Heo Jun-ho (Undercover) are both confirmed to star in the upcoming SBS mystery romance drama “Why Oh Soo-jae?” (literal translation).
Seo Hyun-jin has been tapped to play Oh Soo-jae, a coldhearted and determined lawyer. She is considered as the ace and youngest partner at the leading TK Law Firm who can face even the mighty opponents and make clients go after her. Despite the overwhelming success in her career, she still feels empty inside. She will eventually experience a downhill after one terrible decision, but instead of regretting her actions, this just makes her more conceited.
Hwang In-yeop will lead the drama as Gong Chan, a warmhearted law student at Seojoong University who meets Oh Soo-jae when she’s in rock bottom. He hides a painful past and a twisted fate with Oh Soo-jae, who will be dismissed as an affiliated professor from law school following an unfortunate incident. Gong Chan will do everything to protect Oh Soo-jae.
Bae In-hyuk signs on for the role of Choi Yoon-sang, a sophomore at Seojoong University’s law school and the second son of TK Law Firm head Choi Tae-guk. He had a crush on his tutor Oh Soo-jae when he was studying for his college entrance exam and will eventually meet her again as his professor at Seojoong University’s legal clinic.
Lastly, Heo Jun-ho will play as Bae In-hyuk’s father and TK Law Firm’s chairman Choi Tae-guk, someone whose ambitions and desires doesn’t have boundaries. He is also Oh Soo-jae’s boss who keeps an eye on her.
The drama will be a reunion project of Seo Hyun-jin and PD Park Soo-jin (Hymn of Death, While You Were Sleeping) who worked together for Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim 1. It is scheduled to air in the first half of 2022.
