A possible collaboration between two renowned actors, Jun Ji-hyun and Kang Dong-won, is sending ripples of excitement among fans. The acclaimed screenwriter Jeong Seo-kyeong, known for her work on TVN’s “Little Women” and Park Chan-wook’s film “Decision to Leave,” has teamed up once again with director Kim Hee-won for the new spy-melodrama “Polaris” (working title). Will the Long-Awaited Meeting of Top Actors Jun Ji-hyun and Kang Dong-won Come True?
The Spy-Melodrama “Polaris”
“Polaris” is an upcoming drama in the spy-melodrama genre. Following the success of “Little Women” last year and the captivating screenplay for Park Chan-wook’s film “Decision to Leave,” Jeong Seo-kyeong is now working on this exciting new project.
Jun Ji-hyun’s Potential Lead Role
Jun Ji-hyun has been in talks for the lead role in “Polaris.” Her agency, Culture Depot, confirmed that the actress is positively considering the offer. With an impressive portfolio of hit dramas like “My Love from the Star” and “Legend of the Blue Sea,” the “Kingdom” series on Netflix, and successful films like “Thieves,” “The Berlin File,” and “Assassination,” Jun Ji-hyun’s potential involvement in “Polaris” has drawn immense attention. If she decides to join the project, it will mark her drama comeback after approximately two years since TVN’s “Mount Jiri” in 2021.
“Is Kang Dong-won Really Returning to TV Dramas?”
Another exciting prospect is Kang Dong-won’s potential role as the male lead in “Polaris.” Mostly known for his filmography, including “Kundo: Age of the Rampant,” “Woochi,” “The Priests,” “Peninsula,” and the recent film “Broker” by Hirokazu Kore-eda, Kang Dong-won’s possible return to the small screen is creating a significant buzz.
If Kang Dong-won’s casting in “Polaris” is confirmed, it will mark his TV drama comeback after a staggering 19 years since his last TV appearance in “Magic” in 2004. As the main cast of “Polaris” is being finalized, fans are eagerly anticipating the start of filming for this intriguing project. Broadcasting details are yet to be announced.
