Im Joo Hwan and Kang So Ra to Play Leads in New Drama Ugly Alert
Im Joo Hwan will make his return to the screen with the new drama Ugly Alert, to be produced by Sin Yoon Seob (Rooftop Prince) and written by Jung Ji Woo (Wish Upon a Star). Im Joo Hwan, who was just released from the military in February, will play the role of Gong Joon Soo. The drama will emphasize the meaning of family among people who are not related by blood.
The production company's representative described the drama as a story of Gong Joon Soo, a man down on his luck who still manages to affect the lives of people around him. Kang So Ra will play the innocent and angelic granddaughter of the founder of the fashion company that Gong Joon Soo ends up working for. The drama is expected to be touching while also having a good mix of extreme revenge and love affairs.
Kim Hyun Woo of 24/7 has also been confirmed to be a part of the cast. He will play Kang Chul Soo, a close friend and love interest of Gong Joon Soo's sister.
