Actor Lee Jong Suk will reportedly be making his acting comeback following his military service with the upcoming legal K-Drama Big Mouth.
According to an exclusive report from Ilgan Sports, Lee Jong Suk has been cast as the male lead in upcoming legal K-Drama Big Mouth. Big Mouth is a legal drama that tells the story of a murder case, and a third-rate lawyer who only has a 10 percent chance of winning the case. Bizarre things happen during the case after the truth is revealed, and a decision must be made: should a person become evil and protect their family, or solely protect themselves in a world full of conspiracy and desire.
Lee Jong Suk would play the role of Park Chang Ho, the show’s main character. From humble beginnings, he ends up becoming a third-rate lawyer who only has a 10 percent chance of winning a case. He can’t even afford to keep up with paying the rent for his office or his office manager, who is also his father in law. Others in the profession say he is all talk, no action, and can’t back up his words.
In response to the report, Lee Jong Suk’s agency A-Man Project stated that he is current considering the offer for the project.
Big Mouth will be written by Haram, with assistance from Jang Young Chul and Jung Kyung Soon. The show will be led by director Oh Chung Hwan, who worked on While You Were Sleeping, Hotel del Luna, and Start-Up. Filming is scheduled for the second half of 2021.
