Hwang Jung Eum (She Was Pretty) has been offered a lead role in the new MBC drama Tyrant. Tyrant comes from the writer of Giant, Incarnation of Money, and Empress Ki. It is a revenge drama that will show the reality of the rich elite during the Asian Financial Crisis of 1997 and will take place over a 20 year period.
If she accepts, Hwang Jung Eum would play a woman taking care of her autistic brother who joins with the male lead to discover who was responsible for her father’s death.
I’m a big fan of Hwang Jung Eum, so I’m up for anything she decides to be in. I do prefer her in comedies simply because I think she is so good at them, but she also does melodrama really well. And this has a really solid writer who she has worked with before, so all in all, I think this would be a great set up.
Tyrant is scheduled to premiere in April on MBC.
