Lee Ji Ah confirmed for MBC’s new drama, “I’m A Flower Too”

It’s just been confirmed that actress Lee Ji Ah will be returning to the entertainment industry through MBC‘s new drama, “I’m A Flower Too“.

Directed by Kim Do Woo (director of “My Name is Kim Sam Soon” and “What’s Up, Fox”) and produced by Go Dong Sun (PD for “Queen of Housewives“), “I’m A Flower Too” is a romantic comedy about a female policewoman named Cha Bong Sun who begins to fall in love with a two-faced undercover boss.

Director Kim Do Woo revealed, “When I met Lee Ji Ah for the first time recently, I could feel why so many people had so much interest in her. Her acting in front of the viewers may be important, but what’s also crucial is for the actors themselves to have their own set of charms, which is why I’m looking forward to working with her.”

PD Go Dong Sun added, “Lee Ji Ah is an actor I’ve been watching over ever since her ‘Tae Wang Sa Shin Gi’ days. With her versatile acting skills, I feel that she’ll be able to act out Cha Bong Sun’s various emotions and actions perfectly. I believe it will be an enjoyable production.”

In response, Lee Ji Ah’s agency Key East Entertainment expressed, “It’s true that she worried a lot for her next production. Not only does she have faith in director Kim Do Woo and PD Go Dong Sun, but she said she felt a lot of potential and charm in her character and production as a whole.”

“After meeting with the producer and director last week, she gained even more interest and anticipation for the production and believed it was a drama she couldn’t reject, and accepted the offer in the end. In order to stand before the camera as as a more mature and developed actress, she will be doing her best to prepare herself before the beginning of production,” they said.

Key East continued, “As an actress, Lee Ji Ah has firmly committed herself to bringing out a great drama and greeting everyone once again through her acting. She will be working hard to pay back all the support she received during her period of difficulty.”

With regards to the title of the drama, the producer stated, “It’s a title with the meaning that anyone can or can hope to be the center of the world, just like the main actors in the drama. It also contains the main character’s desire to experience love.”

The production team is currently in the midst of finalizing their main cast line up, which will be shortly followed by the drama’s first recording. The pilot episode will be aired this coming November.
