"Cunning Single Lady" First Script Reading + Stills Of Sweet, Young Lovers Lee Min Jung & Joo Sang Wook
In mid-January, the MBC Dream Center in Ilsan was the site of the first script reading for Cunning Single Lady, a drama headlined by Lee Min Jung and Joo Sang Wook.
This will be the first drama for Lee Min Jung since marrying Lee Byung Hun last August, and while it seems her real life union continues to be blissful, onscreen, she and Joo Sang Wook won’t be living much of the charmed, married life. Here’s the plot for Cunning Single Lady, per AsianWiki:
Ae Ra (Lee Min Jung) is focused on her appearance as she believes it will lead her to a better life. She then meets Jung Woo (Joo Sang Wook) who studied engineering. They eventually get married, but they also get divorced. After their divorce, Ae Ra goes through difficult times. Unlike Ae Ra though, Jung Woo becomes a successful IT developer and very wealthy. Now, Ae Ra tries to seduce Jung Woo to marry her again.
He might start out a total nerd, but it’s a safe bet that Sang Wook’s Jung Woo will be transformed into a stylish hottie once he becomes a rich catch.
Rounding up the cast of Cunning Single Lady are Infinite’s L (playing Jung Woo’s secretary), Seo Kang Joon, and Kim Gyu Ri, and photos of the table read indicate a pleasant working relationship between the actors. Min Jung seemed especially vibrant and excited to be taking on this new project.
The new MBC rom-com will be airing on February 26th, taking over Miss Korea‘s timeslot.
