Hwang Jung Min and YoonA have transformed into newspaper reporters in their new drama Hush.
JTBC’s new Friday-Saturday drama Hush confirmed their premiere date and the casting of Hwang Jung Min and YoonA. Hush is an office drama about newspaper reporters and their everyday struggles, problems, and ethical dilemmas. Based on Jeong Jin Young’s novel Silent Warning (literal title), Hush plans to show a more realistic world of journalists.
Hwang Jung Min takes on the role of Han Jun Hyeok, a veteran reporter for a newspaper. He was once a journalist who pursues justice and truth, but now he has zero passion. He conflicts between idealism and pragmatism and faces a turning point in his career with a critical incident.
The actor will return to the small screen after 8 years. Hwang said, “I felt a strong attraction when I saw the script that shows a realistic and unique material.”
YoonA plays Lee Ji Su, a bold intern reporter who isn’t afraid to say what needs to be said, even during a job interview. When she meets Han Jun Hyeok as her mentor, she dreams of becoming a true journalist.
YoonA said, “I’m happy and excited to be able to work with my respected senior Hwang Jung Min. I will work hard so that viewers can sympathize with the process of Ji Su’s growth. Please give us a lot of support.”
Hwang Jung Min and YoonA will constantly bump into each other in the play, stimulating each other’s growth and awakening. They will pleasantly unravel the world of journalists shaken by the boundary of the dilemma between survival and conscience.
Hush will premiere on December 11 at 11 p.m. KST as a follow-up of More Than Friends.
