Choi Ji Woo confirmed for new MBC drama Woman with a Suitcase
Choi Ji Woo is ready for her 2016 K-drama comeback! Following her fan favorites Twenty Again and Like For Likes, the acting queen has finally chosen her next big K-drama role. Choi has decided to star in MBC's upcoming legal/romance series Woman with a Suitcase (aka Woman Who Pulls a Career). She accepted the role of Cha Keum Joo, the strong and charming head of a law office who falls victim to a conspiracy. The audience will follow her empowering journey back to the top when the series premieres in mid-September.
MBC promises this won't be a stiff courtroom drama. They plan to put a spotlight on other important issues as well. They recently stated, "[Woman with a Suitcase] is a legal/romance drama in which a charismatic woman finds romance and fulfills her dream. It's not a stiff courtroom drama. Instead, it will be a drama which contains stories about your average person in the legal field, the media, and the financial and entertainment worlds, as well as in society. Further, [the drama] will unfold a warm and emotional tale of romance with a legal setting as the background, and the tale of a female lead who finds her dreams despite her hardships."
I have been a Choi Ji Woo fan since 2004. I can not wait to see her in a brand new series! I loved her recent series Twenty Again, and I hope this new MBC show has even more heart than the 2015 K-drama gem. Now that casting is underway, who do you want to want to see in the role of her love interest? Joo Jin Mo, Lee Joon, and Jun Hye Bin have received offers for this drama as well.
