“The role of a truthful reporter seems much more needed nowadays than ever. That’s why this drama and the character resonated with me,” Kim said.

Meanwhile, Chun will play Lee Yeon-hwa, a reporter assigned to “Argon” three months before her contract expires. Kim puts Lee under rigorous training to help her become a fulltime reporter.

“The drama script shows the characters and situations so realistically, I really wanted to star in the drama,” Chun said.

“Argon” has elements of different genres, from rom-com to sci-fi. The drama revolves around the story of reporters who fight fake news and strive to deliver the truths to the viewers.

Helmed by director Lee Yoon-jung, who also directed MBC’s drama “The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince” (2007) and tvN’s rom-com “Cheese in the Trap” (2016), the drama will launch in September.
