Ha Ji Won confirmed her appearance in Dramaworld 2, completing the super-luxury cast.
According to Ha Ji Won’s agency Haewadal Entertainment, Ha Ji Won joined the second season of Dramaworld, which gained explosive popularity among K-drama fans around the world.
Dramaworld, the K-drama spoof that premiered its first season in 2016, follows the adventures of Claire Duncan (Liv Hewson), an American college student and huge fan of Korean Dramas, after getting transported to her favorite show with a touch of magic. In June, Variety confirmed that “a second, 10-episode season is in production.”
In Dramaworld 2, Ha Ji Won will play Ji Won, the main character in a gangster drama from the ’80s. Taking on the role of a tough and arrogant detective, Ha Ji Won’s charisma and action skills will be full of impact. She will be the kind of person who shakes off all nervous tension with a drink of soju even when she has to go on a dangerous operation with Claire to infiltrate a giant organization.
Back in 2016, Dramaworld won the Most Popular Foreign Drama of the Year award at the Seoul International Drama Awards. According to Forbes, the second season sees the return of Hewson (Bombshell, The Santa Clarita Diet), Dulake (Operation Chromite), and Chon (The Twilight Saga, Gook), along with more cameos from k-pop and k-drama stars, including Ha Ji Won, Henry Lau, Choi Si Won, and Han Ji Min.
