[Hot Takes from the Noonas] "Manipulation" finally gets a female lead as Eom Ji-won signs on to star opposite Namgoong Min

The casting roller coaster for "Manipulation" has finally come to a halt as Eom Ji-won makes her return to the small screen to play a prosecutor opposite Namgoong Min and Yoo Joon-sang.

After offering the role to what seemed like every film actress they could find, the producers of "Manipulation" rounded out the stellar cast with the addition of Eom Ji-won as the lead. Now that all the pieces are in place, "Manipulation" is looking more and more intriguing; a team of reporters will fight to reveal corruption, with the help of Kwon So-ra, played by Eom Ji-won, a prosecutor who graduated at the top of her class, but puts people off with her blunt manner.

At first, I had a lot of worries about acting so I asked my members a lot of questions. They told me to just act comfortably and be myself, so I took it easy and I think it turned out okay. I felt less burdened because I was just playing the role of Seulgi. I acted while looking back on my trainee days, she explained.
