Seo Ye Ji, Park Byung Eun, Yoo Sun, And Lee Sang Yeob Portray Intriguing Characters At Script Reading For New Drama
“Eve” (literal title, formerly known as “Eve’s Scandal”) is a romance drama dealing with the inside story of a chaebol‘s 2 trillion won (approximately $1.7 billion) divorce lawsuit that shocks the entire nation. Seo Ye Ji stars as Lee Ra El, who was born between a genius father and a beautiful mother. After going through an unfortunate family affair, she transforms into a woman who is likened to a “dangerous flower” with a fatal charm. She is the woman at the center of the unbelievably expensive divorce lawsuit. Park Byung Eun will star as the CEO of the No. 1 corporate group in the financial world.
When discussing the casting of Seo Ye Ji as Lee Ra El, the production team said, “We thought solid acting skills and immersion are important since ‘Eve’ contains the process of Lee Ra El carefully preparing for revenge. Seo Ye Ji is an actress with a strong image and the energy to immerse herself to pull off Lee Ra El. From the first meeting, she analyzed the script more thoroughly than anyone else. A high understanding of the character and great affection for the project are the main reasons she was cast.
Park Byung Eun plays Kang Yoon Gyum, the CEO of LY Group, the No. 1 corporate group in the financial world. He is a man who has been faithful to his family and work without a single scandal, but he falls in love with Lee Ra El after meeting her. When discussing his role, the production crew said, “From Lee Ra El’s point of view, Kang Yoon Gyum is one of the main culprits of her collapsed family history and a man who needs to fall in love. We needed an actor in his 40s who is intelligent and sexy at the same time while also having a look that can portray the character’s double-sidedness. In that sense, we thought Park Byung Eun, who has the perfect face that crosses between good and evil and acting ability that adds to the character’s narrative, is the perfect option. Viewers will be able to feel another charm of Park Byung Eun.”
Yoo Sun plays the role of Han So Ra, who must be the best. Han So Ra is the only daughter of powerful politician Han Pan Ro and wife of Kang Yoon Gyum. However, underneath her perfect and glamorous appearance, she is emotionally anxious and obsessed with her husband. The production team praised Yoo Sun’s talent by saying, “Yoo Sun is an actress who has the visuals and acting skills to portray the perfect appearance of a woman who has everything while also expressing her inner feelings, which are stained with wounds, anxiety, and obsession. Yoo Sun’s elegant charisma and unlimited acting spectrum will shine once again, creating an unprecedented character.”
Finally, Lee Sang Yeob plays the role of Seo Eun Pyung, the youngest member of the National Assembly who has overcome his painful past of starting out at an orphanage. He has risen to the top, but he has resolved to abandon it all if it is for love. Commenting on Lee Sang Yeob, the production team said, “Lee Sang Yeob’s image fits perfectly to that of Seo Eun Pyung’s character, who is willing to freely sacrifice everything he accumulated for love. More than anything, during the first meeting, when we saw Lee Sang Yeob’s shining eyes that are warm and gentle yet firm, we confirmed, ‘He is Seo Eun Pyung himself.'”
“Eve” is slated to be released in 2022.
