Nam Ji Hyun might be starring in a new fantasy thriller drama!
On November 30, Nam Ji Hyun’s agency Management SOOP shared that the actress was offered the role of the main character in the upcoming drama “Hi Cookie” (literal title) and is reviewing the offer positively.
“Hi Cookie” is about an elite high school that gets swallowed up by dangerous handmade cookies that make people’s dreams come true. The drama tells the story of a woman who has to go into the swamp herself to rescue her drowning sister.
Nam Ji Hyun was offered the role of Choi Soo Young, who became her family’s breadwinner at the age of 18 and started part-time work at a factory to raise her younger sister.
Previously in October, it was reported that Choi Hyun Wook will take on the role of the male lead, but his agency has not yet commented on this report.
While the broadcast schedule is still under discussion, production is set to kick off in 2023. Stay tuned for more updates!
