Top actors Song Hye-kyo and Ju Ji-hoon may co-star in the new drama "Hyena."
"Song received the drama's script but has not made a decision yet," a spokesperson for her agency UAA said Thursday. "She has been reviewing various works."
KEYEAST, which represents Ju, revealed "Hyena" is one of the works Ju has been looking at.
The soap opera revolves around lawyers who represent the high-class. It is not a legal drama, but a story centering on people.
If the actors confirm their appearance, Song will play a money-oriented character, with Ju taking the role of an elite lawyer.
The TV series will reportedly go to air in November.
Song, 37, is a leading hallyu star with dozens of hits, including drama "Autumn in My Heart" (2000), "Full House" (2004) and "Descendants of the Sun" (2016).
Ju, 37, has appeared in several works including TV series "Princess Hours (2006)," and the film "Along with the Gods: The Two Worlds" and its sequel in 2017-18.
