Jo Bo Ah In Talks To Star In Fantasy Drama Along With Lee Dong Wook
Dec 12, 2019
Jo Bo Ah received an offer for tvN’s new drama titled “Tale of Gumiho” (literal title).
On December 12, a source told media outlet Ilgan Sports that Jo Bo Ah will play the female lead in a fantasy drama that will air in the first half of next year.
On the same day, her agency SidusHQ shared, “[Jo Bo Ah] has received an offer to star in the new tvN drama ‘Tale of Gumho’ and is positively looking over it.”
If Jo Bo Ah agrees to star in the drama, she will take on the role of Nam Ji Ah, a producing director (PD) who is producing a program called “Finding Urban Legends.” She may seem like your average director, but her colleagues describe her as a “gutsy woman.” From boldly diving into a religious cult to excitedly entering haunted houses, she is fearless when it comes to getting content for her show. As a result, she has gotten the most requests for an injunction against broadcasting and her attendance at the media arbitration committee is the highest out of anyone. She is extremely competitive and has a knack for billiards, arcade games, shooting, and more.
“Tale of Gumiho” follows the life of the gumiho, who once ruled as a living god of the Baekdudaegan Mountain Range but now works as a sort of public official between this world and the underworld. His main job is to clean up the mess left behind by those who disturb the world of the living while hiding behind the guise of ghost tales. Lee Dong Wook is currently in talks to play the first male gumiho in a lead role.
