Although not much is known about the plot of Zero other than it is a “science fiction chase thriller,” it’s gaining a lot of attention because it’s being written by Lee Soo Yeon, who wrote the Stranger/Forest of Secrets series. It will also be directed by Lee Khan, who directed The Divine Move 2: The Wrathful.
On April 16, Sports Seoul reported that Kim Ah Joong had been cast in Zero as the female lead. The report also claimed that Chun Woo Hee, who was previously in talks for the series, was no longer in talks. Seo Kang Joon, Kim Moo Yeol, and Lee Si Young were also reported to be in talks for the series as well.
A source from Ace Factory, who is producing the drama, confirmed, “We are currently in talks with Kim Ah Joong for the female lead role in ‘Zero.’”
If she accepts, it will be her first K-Drama since Live Up to Your Name in 2017. However, she was previously reported to be in talks for a different show with Lee Sang Yoon.
