Choi Ji-woo considers new role
Actress Choi Ji-woo may star in a new MBC drama series tentatively titled “A Woman Who Carries a Suitcase.”
Several local media outlets reported Tuesday morning that Choi had been confirmed to take the lead role in the upcoming project. However, Choi’s talent agency, YG Entertainment, announced that the actress had not yet made up her mind.
Choi has been offered to play a character named Cha Geum-joo, who heads a law firm. The story revolves around Cha, who enjoys a successful career until she is sent to prison for violating the Attorneys-at-Law Act. The plot centers on how the character rebuilds her career and achieves her ultimate dream.
If Choi takes part in the show, it will be the first time the actress is starring in a drama since tvN’s “Twenty Again,” which aired last year.
Choi is a veteran actress who has starred in numerous hit projects including “Temptation” (2014), “Stairway to Heaven” (2003-04) and “Winter Sonata” (2002). She has also appeared in numerous reality programs such as “Grandpas Over Flowers” (2015).
