Shin Hyun Been Confirmed To Be Joining Song Joong Ki In Upcoming Drama ‘Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son’
A new cast member has been confirmed to be joining Song Joong Ki in the upcoming JTBC drama Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son. Just recently, it was announced that Shin Hyun Been will also star in the new fantasy drama, which is based on a web novel of the same name.
Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son follows the secretary of a chaebol family. Due to the unexpected turns of events, he died and was reborn as the youngest son of the family. It is directed by Jung Dae Yoon (She Was Pretty and W) and written by Kim Tae Hee (A Beautiful Mind and Sungkyunkwan Scandal).
Previously, it has been confirmed that Song Joong Ki will be playing the lead role of Yoon Hyun Woo. He is the chaebol family’s secretary who died after being framed by the company he remained loyal to, the Sunyang Group family. He was reborn as the youngest son Jin Do Joon and vowed to take revenge.
Now joining Song Joong Ki in Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son is Shin Hyun Been. The actress is set to portray the character of Seo Min Young, a prosecutor from the anti-corruption department. She is willing to do whatever is necessary – including breaking the law – just to make sure that justice will be served.
Seo Min Young is also called the “grim reaper of the Sunyang Group family” because she’s determined to track down their illegal practices of hereditary succession. Along the process of investigating the family’s wrongdoings, she gets involved with the youngest son Jin Do Joon.
The line between love and hatred will soon surface as Seo Min Young and Jin Do Joon take turns in chasing each other. Eventually, a romance between the two may blossom while trying to uncover the illegal practices of the family.
As for other characters joining Song Joong Ki and Shin Hyun Bin in the Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son, it was also previously announced that Lee Sung Min was cast as Jin Yang Chul. The character is the head of the Sunyang Group family.
Jin Yang Chul is very competitive and has endless greed for money. He will do everything – and doesn’t care what or who’s on the way – just to get what he wants. Meanwhile, Tiffany was also reported to be joining the drama in an undisclosed role.
Chaebol Family’s Youngest Son is scheduled to kick off filming later this 2021 and will be premiering in 2022 on JTBC.
