Ji Chang Wook’s (Healer,The K2) new drama finally has a confirmed cast with Nam Ji Hyun (Shopping King Louis) locked in as his leading lady and Choi Tae Joon, his real-life close friend, signed on board.

Since mid-February, there’s been quite a few new updates with the upcoming SBS romantic comedy thriller Suspicious Partner, a show previously given the working title of Be Careful of this Woman. After Lee Sung Kyung and Han Ji Min were courted to be the potential female leads, the drama has confirmed Nam Ji Hyun will play Ji Chang Wook’s new K-drama love interest. Along with this news, the second leads were also quickly confirmed with Choi Tae Joon and Nara from K-pop group, Hello Venus, rounding out the main cast -- just in time to start the mad rush of filming for its scheduled May premiere!

The rom-com takes place in a judicial setting following the stories of prosecutors and lawyers, and a criminal who chases our lead couple down with an attempt to murder them. Ji Chang Wook will act as Noh Ji Wook, a man who is good at everything and fulfills his father’s dreams for his son by becoming a prosecutor. He becomes entangled in a case with Eun Bong Hee, played by Nam Ji Hyun, a character who used to train in taekwondo but later becomes a trainee in the legal system.

Choi Tae Joon from Missing 9 will act as Ji Eun Hyuk, a lawyer who has been friends with Ji Chang Wook’s character, Noh Ji Wook, since childhood. One of the interesting dynamics of this show will be seeing these two real-life friends act as buddies on screen. Nara from girl group Hello Venus will make her drama debut with this show as Cha Yoo Jung, a prosecutor who also happens to be Noh Ji Wook’s ex-flame.

Suspicious Partner’s script was written by the writer of I Remember You. The new show will air on Wednesday and Thursday, taking Saimdang: Light's Diary’s time slot following its completion.
