Han Ye Seul (Madame Antoine) has now been offered a lead role in the new SBS thriller Defendant. Defendant is about a top prosecutor who one day wakes up in prison on death row with no memory of how he ended up there. The drama then follows his attempt to figure out what happened and get out of prison. The drama comes from one of the writers of City Hunter.
Han Ye Seul would play a sincere public defender who fights hard in the courtroom, but always seems to end up losing. She ends up at odds with our star prosecutor. But in his time of need, she’ll be the one he needs to come to his rescue.
I’m still really liking the plot for the drama, and I think both Ji Sung and Han Seul would be wonderful in these roles. I’m anxious to hear their decisions!
Defendant is looking to air in January 2017 on SBS.
