Lee Jung Jae and Elliya Lee in Talks for Political Drama Aide


A political K-drama is in the works and may unite an established leading man with a still rising young actress. Mostly movie star Lee Jung Jae is reportedly mulling his first K-drama in ten years with the drama Aide (Consigliere). His last drama was the very odd Triple, sooooooo much going on and nothing quite gelling other than a very memorable early dogicide and the launch of Song Joong Ki‘s career. His drama prior to that was more along the classic Hallyu route in Air City, he was a swashbuckling NIS agent turned sorta airport guru with plenty of emergencies to fix. In talks to join him in Aide is Elliya Lee, coming off a well-received villainess turn in An Empress’s Dignity and really working hard to build up her resume. The drama is from the PD of Chuno and The K2 so definitely has visual firepower lined up.
