[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Bae Doona and Cho Seung-woo confirmed to star in "Secret Forest"


Bae Doona is set to come back to Korean dramas after an absence of seven years with tvN thriller "Secret Forest", with Cho Seung-woo co-starring.

"Secret Forest" tells the story of Hwang Shi-mok played by Cho Seung-woo, a prosecutor who, as a result of surgery in his childhood, lacks the capactiy to feel emotions. Bae Doona will play a dedicated and upbeat cop who teams up with him to battle crime and corruption. Joining them will be Lee Joon-hyuk as a prosecutor, and Lee Kyung-young as the Minister of Justice.

"Secret Forest" is the first drama for Bae Doona since 2010's "Gloria", while Cho Seung-woo is returning after a shorter absence of three years, his last drama being 2014's "God's Gift - 14 Days". Both actors tend to be more active in film, so this is a hotly anticipated return to the small screen. The plot seems a bit like a retread of 2015's "Remember You", but since it's from the network that brought us "Signal", I'm more than willing to give "Secret Forest" a chance, especially with two great actors in the lead roles.

"Secret Forest" will be entirely pre-produced, and is scheduled to air in the first half of 2017 on tvN.
