Eugene (All About My Mom), Shin Sung Rok (Perfume), and Lee Ji Ah (The Ghost Detective) have been offered starring roles in the new Korean drama Penthouse. Penthouse is about a woman who will do anything to get a luxury penthouse in Gangnam, even if she becomes a monster along the way. The drama comes from the writer as well as the PD of The Last Empress.
Well, I pretty much perked right up for this one! The makjang fest The Last Empress was my favorite drama of 2019. Then we add in Shin Sung Rok, who was also in that drama, as well as two great actresses in Eugene and Lee Ji Ah, and that sounds like a fantastic combination to me! I’ll be keeping a close eye on how this one comes together.
Penthouse is planning to air in 2020 on SBS.
