Lee Jong Suk and Kim Ji Won may reunite as lead characters in a Netflix drama called See You Again.
The agencies of both stars have stated that they’ve received a proposal for the upcoming drama, but are currently in the process of reviewing.
If they decide to take on the drama, it will be the first time they reunite in 7 years since the drama High Kick 3: Revenge of the Short Legged.
MBC’s High Kick 3: Revenge of the Short Legged, which aired in 2011, featured a love triangle between Lee Jong Suk, Kim Ji Won and Yoon Kye Sang. Lee Jong Suk had a crush on Kim Ji Won while Kim Ji Won had a crush on Lee Jong Suk’s uncle, Yoon Kye Sang.
See You Again is a romance drama that will be 100% pre-recorded and aired through Netflix to 170 countries around the world.
Netflix has previously invested the entire production cost (about $50 million USD) of the movie Okja, which was directed by Bong Joon Ho, and will also be airing the new Korean variety show Busted in May.
