According to JTBC News, multiple sources have revealed that Claudia Kim and Hong Ye Ji were cast in The Dinner. The Dinner revolves around the two brothers and their families as they stand at the crossroads between covering up and turning themselves in after their kids cause an accident that involves a homeless man.
After making a splendid big-screen debut in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Claudia Kim has only appeared in American movies including The Dark Tower and Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. So The Dinner marks the actress’s debut in Korean cinema, heightening expectations.
Joining the cast as Claudia Kim and Sol Kyung Gu’s troublemaking daughter is 2037 star Hong Ye Ji. The actress had beat out 400 other hopefuls for the lead role and received favorable reviews for her solid performance. In The Dinner, Hong Ye Ji will play the problematic daughter who is at the center of all incidents. If she played an unfairly treated victim in 2037, she would turn into a vicious perpetrator in The Dinner.
Meanwhile, The Dinner comes from director Hur Jin Ho, who helmed his first TV series Lost after the success of the 2019 movie Forbidden Dream.
