If you’re on the lookout for a K-show that’s not a rom-com, add this to your radar. Song Hye Kyo and Han So Hee are shaking up the K-drama realm with the news of their upcoming project titled The Price of Confession.
After Song Hye Kyo wrapped up The Glory Part 2 (which became Netflix’s number 1 Non-English show during the week of its release), it’s like she has little or no time for rest as she has another project waiting for her to come on board. Rumours about her and Han So Hee working together first surfaced in August 2022, but it was only when the two top stars shared a teaser photo on their Instagram Stories that K-fans got the confirmation that it’s finally happening.
The Price of Confession: cast and plot
The Price of Confession (the drama’s working title) is a mystery thriller about a bloody murder case. Instead of the usual couple or trio (that would instantly give off love triangle vibes), the makers of the drama revealed that the leads will be two female characters. Song Hye Kyo will portray the character of Ahn Yoon Soo, an art professor whose life is turned upside down after being entangled in a murder case. Meanwhile, Han So Hee will portray the mysterious character of Mo Eun, who has antisocial tendencies.
While a lot of information is still under wraps, it has been revealed that it will be directed by Shim Na Yeon (who also directed Beyond Evil and Moment at Eighteen).
Song Hye Kyo has led a glorious career in K-entertainment (her breakout role was in the 2000 drama Autumn In My Heart and has since then skyrocketed to fame). Compared to her, Han So Hee is a budding actress, but she has taken on a variety of roles such as ones in The World of the Married, My Name, Soundtrack #1, and more.
The Price of Confession: release date
The exciting new drama might be released on Netflix, but stay tuned for more official details about its release in Singapore.
