Shin Sung Rok (Perfume) has accepted a lead role in the upcoming Korean drama Penthouse. He will play the head of an investment firm. Still considering offers to star are Eugene (All About My Mom) and Lee Ji Ah (The Ghost Detective).
Penthouse is about a woman’s ambitious goal to rise into high society through the real estate business, and she will do anything to succeed, even if she becomes a monster along the way. The drama comes from the writer as well as the PD of The Last Empress.
Shin Sung Rok combined with The Last Empress team has me ready and waiting for this one! I hope the ladies sign on too, and then we’ll have a wonderful group here.
Penthouse is looking to air later in 2020 on SBS.
