Gong Hyo Jin is positively reviewing her appearance in the new Netflix drama, Queen of the Scene (literal title).

Earlier today, a media outlet reported that Gong Hyo Jin has been cast to take the lead in the new Netflix original series and transform into a writer who writes crazy dramas. In response, the actress’s agency Management SOOP said, “Gong Hyo Jin is positively reviewing the offer.”

Once she confirms her appearance, Gong Hyo Jin will play Kim Ma Ri, a screenwriter nicknamed the “queen of makjang.” She is the ratings gold with her provocative storytelling, speedy development, unprecedented villains and colorful revenge stories. With an average of 35% audience ratings, she lives in the “heavenly class” where she can program a project whenever she wants.

Queen of the Scene is expected to faithfully follow the makjang drama laws, such as a good but frustrating heroine, a chaebol heir who only has eyes for the heroine, secrets behind birth, and kimchi-slapping, and yet, twist the cliches to provide vicarious satisfaction and catharsis.

How to Use Guys with Secret Tips director Lee Won Suk will helm the production while My PS Partner screenwriter Kim Soo Ah pens the script.
