A representative from the Management SOOP, the agency representing both actors, informed Korean media on the 20th that Gong Yoo and Seo Hyun Jin were offered roles in the upcoming Netflix original series ‘Trunk’ (written by Park Eun Young and directed by Kim Gyu Tae) and are currently positively considering the offer.
Based on the novel, ‘Trunk’ revolves around the happenings at NM, a fixed-term marriage service agency that arranges a married life with a preferred partner.
‘Trunk’ is a joint venture between producing director Kim Gyu Tae, who has previously worked on projects such as “Our Blues,” “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo,” “It’s Okay, That’s Love,” and “Live,” and scriptwriter Park Eun Young, known for her work on “Hwarang.”
According to reports, Seo Hyun Jin has been offered the role of Noh Ih Ji, a deputy general manager at NM, a person who is not interested in getting married but works in the marriage industry. Gong Yoo, on the other hand, has been offered the role of Han Jung Won, a music producer who holds the belief that all marriages are based on deception.
