SBS confirmed the cast and production of its new drama titled The Escape of the Seven (literal title).

The thriller series follows seven people involved in a missing girl’s case as they face a shocking truth that will affect them all.

The series will be co-produced by screenwriter Kim Soon Ok and producer Joo Dong Min behind hit drama The Penthouse: War in life.

Um Ki Joon will play Matthew Lee, the CEO of a mysterious mobile platform company. Joining him will be Hwang Jung Eum as Keum La Hee, the head of a drama production company that puts money and success above all. She tries to find her daughter, whom she abandoned 15 years ago, to receive a large inheritance.

Lee Jun will transform into a former crime syndicate member Min Do Hyuk living a life full of betrayals. Lee Yoo Bi will star as an idol trainee named Han Mo Ne who lives a fake life.

Shin Eun Kyung will appear in the series as Cha Joo Ran, an OB-GYN who lives with Chairman Bang. Things get complicated as Keum La Hee appears with Bang’s granddaughter to claim her share. Lee Deok Hwa will play the cash-rich entrepreneur Bang Chil Sung who treats his tenant Cha Joo Ran nicely. However, things get messy as his one-and-only granddaughter appears in front of him.

Yoon Jong Hoon will star as Yang Jin Mo, a greedy talent agency executive. Although he may seem gentle and kind on the outside, nobody can stop him once he flips. Jo Yoon Hee will play Go Myung Ji, the art teacher who spreads groundless rumors in her school not to expose her dirty secret. Jo Jae Yoon will take on the role of Nam Cheol Woo, the chief detective who climbed up the job ladder faster than anybody else in a suburb police station.

The drama is set to air next year.
