[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Jung Yu-mi considering lead role in Noh Hee-kyeong's latest drama, "Live"

Writer Noh Hee-kyeong is set to come back with "Live" a new drama slated to broadcast in early 2018, with an offer out to Jung Yu-mi to star.

There aren't a lot of details about "Live", but the announcement described it as a police drama, exploring their role in society as civil servants and keepers of the peace. Noh Hee-kyeong has an interesting track record as a writer ("Dear My Friends", "It's Okay, That's Love", "That Winter, the Wind Blows"), so it's likely that we're not going to get a typical cop drama. At the very last, we can probably expect complex relationships, layered characters, and a humanistic view of the police and their lives. Kim Kyu-tae, who directed four of her last five dramas, is set to direct.
