Lee Jong Suk in New KDrama
Lee Jong Suk is making his much-awaited return to the Kdrama world. On April 21, a close source from the drama world claimed that Lee Jong Suk would play a lawyer in the upcoming Kdrama, “Big Mouth.”
But, it is not sure whether the actor will be a part of Big Mouth or not. Jong Suk’s agency, A-MAN Project, revealed that the actor had received an offer, and currently, he is reviewing it.
Big Mouth will follow the life of a third-rate lawyer and the events that happened after he is assigned to a murder case. The new drama will showcase the bizarre things that will happen after he takes charge and starts to dig deeper to find the truth. On the other hand, it will also show how a lawyer will turn into an evil person in order to protect his family and himself. Also, he will look for ways to punish the bad guys in a world full of conspiracies and greed.
Screenwriters Jang Young Chul and Jung Kyung Soon will pen down the script alongside writer Ha Ram. And Oh Choong Hwan will helm the drama. He is known for shows like While you were sleeping, Hotel Del Luna, and Start-up. He has directed some of the best dramas which premiered recently. And, we expect the same from Big Mouth.

Lee Jong Suk is offered the role of Park Chang Ho. He is a no-name lawyer and never has been associated with a successful case in his life. Furthermore, he only has a win rate of 10%. He is also called a Big Mouth because he talks very highly, but his actions show no signs and substance.
