[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Lee Sang-yoon offered lead role in SBS's "Whisper"

2017/01/18 | 3608 views | Permalink

The offer is out to Lee Sang-yoon for SBS's upcoming suspense drama "Whisper". His acceptance is still pending, but with Lee Bo-young already confirmed to star, "Whisper" is looking better and better.

If he accepts, Lee Sang-yoon would be reunited with Lee Bo-young onscreen for the first time since their 2013 hit drama, "My Daughter Seo-yeong". I'm a fan of both actors, so the prospect of seeing them together again is pretty exciting. "Whisper" will be written by Park Kyeong-soo and directed by Lee Myeong-woo, whose last project together, "Punch - Drama" was well-received, though not a huge hit, ratings-wise.

In the same vein as "Punch - Drama", "Whisper" delves into a world of corruption, this time at one of the largest law firms in South Korea. Lee Sang-yoon is up for the role of an elite judge of the Seoul District Court who stands up for the weak, while Lee Bo-young will be playing a tough police detective with a heart of gold.

"Whisper" will air in March 2017 in the Monday-Tuesday time slot, following "Defendant". Park Kyeong-soo is known for creating great stories with layered characters, so here's hoping Lee Sang-yoon confirms soon.
