“Disqualified as a Human” (literal title) is an upcoming South Korean television series. It will be directed by Heo Jin Ho (The last Princess, Dangerous Liaisons, Gift).

On the contrary, Jeon Do Yeon’s agency Management SOOP also confirmed her appearance in the show. Both the stars will be seen in leading roles.

Jeon Do Yeon is making a comeback after five long years. Do-Yeon was last seen in 2016’s hit drama, “The Good Wife.” Fans of the actress are extreme;y excited to see her in a new project. Do-Yeon will play a 40-year-old ghostwriter, Boo Jung. Although she is good at what she does, she still feels she hasn’t achieved anything. One day she encounters all the failures and looks back on her life. Boo Jung then reflects on her life and falls into a deep pit of darkness.
