“Big Issue” is about the battles of the paparazzi who unveil uncomfortable truths about a society overtaken by evil. The new drama will tell the story of a homeless alcoholic who turns his life around and becomes a paparazzo in order to save his daughter, as well as a heartless editor-in-chief who uses her connections to reveal celebrity scandals.
Han Ye Seul will portray Ji Soo Hyun, the editor-in-chief of Korea’s most notorious celebrity scandal paparazzi newspaper “Sunday Report.” Once she catches a whiff of a scandal, she stops at nothing to expose it, and she is such a powerful player in the world of the paparazzi that she is nearly a celebrity herself. She is also the person who lures homeless man Han Suk Joo into the paparazzi world. Joo Jin Mo’s character Han Suk Joo was once a photo journalist, but due to one photo, he loses his home and family.
The drama will be directed by Lee Dong Hoon, who has directed “Tazza,” “Protect the Boss,” and “God’s Gift – 14 Days,” and written by Jang Hyuk Rin, who has written “Reset,” “The Gang Doctor,” and “The K2.”
"Big Issue" premieres Wednesday, March 6 on SBS.
