Jung Kyung Ho might have picked his next project!

On September 10, several sources reported to media outlet YTN Star, “Jung Kyung Ho has been cast as the male lead in tvN’s upcoming drama ‘Touch Your Heart’ (literal translation).”

Based on a novel of the same name written by Korean author Jager, “Touch Your Heart” is about the romance between a lawyer and a top actress, whose life goes downhill after becoming caught up in a scandal with a third generation chaebol. She fakes her position to become the lawyer’s secretary in order to star in a famous writer’s drama.

The drama will be headed by producing-director Park Joon Hwa, who recently directed popular tvN drama “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim.”

In the drama, Jung Kyung Ho will play Kwon Jung Rok, a cranky and successful lawyer. Yoo In Na is currently in talks to star as the top actress Oh Yeon Soo.

If the reports are correct, Jung Kyung Ho would be entering into a new work right after the finale of OCN’s “Life on Mars.” In this drama, he played detective Han Tae Joo who travels back in time to 1988, where he works with detective Kang Dong Chul (played by Park Sung Woong) to solve cases.

“Touch Your Heart” is slated to air at the end of January 2019, after upcoming drama “Boyfriend,” starring Song Hye Kyo and Park Bo Gum, which will air this coming November.
