Lee Kwang-soo and AOA's Seolhyun will star in tvN's new series, "The Murderer's Shopping List," a humorous murder mystery about hunting for a killer after a body is found near an apartment complex.
Based on the novel of the same title, the series will involve different characters tracking down the suspected killer based on the grocery receipts that the deceased left behind.
It will be directed by Lee Eon-hee, who previously worked on the films, "The Accidental Detective 2: In Action" and "Missing." The script was written by Han Ji-wan, who also wrote the dramas, "Wanted" and "The Ghost Detective."
In the upcoming series, Lee will portray Ahn Dae-sung, a silly but lovable son of supermarket owner Jung Myung-sook (Jin Hee-kyung). Ahn was once a smart kid, but a mysterious incident at the supermarket turned his life upside down and he is now studying for the third-consecutive year to become a public servant.
AOA's Seolhyun will play the role of Ahn's girlfriend, Do Ah-hee, a passionate police officer. When the dead body is discovered near the apartment complex, she makes use of her full capabilities to investigate the case.
"The Murderer's Shopping List" will air in the first half of next year.
