After the success of Defendant, actor Ji Sung is likely to star in a historical film alongside Cho Seung Woo.Titled "Great Site," Ji Sung's agency Namoo Actors has confirmed that the actor has been approached by the production team and the discussions are on a positive note. Cho Seung Woo's Good Man Story Entertainment has also confirmed the same.
Ji Sung is likely to play the role of a prince in this historical thriller that revolves around a massive battle to decided the next king. Cho will be portraying the role of a feng shui master. The shooting is expected to begin by late 2017.
Meanwhile, Sung is fresh from the success of Defendant. The SBS drama revolved around a Park Jung-woo, a prosecutor at Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office, who finds himself as a death row convict on a fine morning. Suffering from temporary amnesia, Jung-woo struggles to recover his memory to clear his name from the case.
Recently, Sung and his wife Lee Bo Young has been named as the most success celebrities family by tvN's The List 2017—a list that rates families who achieve success together. A report on Soompi states, "Lee Bo Young and Ji Sung, who married in 2013 and had their first child together in 2015, have both been consistently showing strong acting performances in a variety of projects since their marriage. Furthermore, the two have both been recipients of a variety of acting awards and recognitions, including Best Actor/Actress and Grand Prize at major award ceremonies, since their marriage."
The others on the list were So Yoo Jin and Baek Jong Won, Lee Min Jung and Lee Byung Hun, Ryu Soo Young and Park Ha Sun, Yang Se Hyung and Yang Se Chan, Park Sung Woong and Shin Eun Jung, Akdong Musician's Lee Soo Hyun and Lee Chan Hyuk, and Kim Gura and MC Gree.
Interestingly, Defendant was replaced by Bo Young's Whisper on the same time slot. Looks like Lee Bo Young and Ji Sung are one real happy couple.
