Big Issue takes the story of Ji Soo Hyun (portrayed by Han), a smart editor with incredible connections that she use to spawn talk-of-the-town celebrity gossips.

Although she once dreamt of becoming an honest reporter who does responsible journalism, she succumbs to being a paparazzi since telling the truth as a reporter does not make her powerful.

On December 19, Joo Jin Moo (Bad Guys: City of Evil) confirmed his appearance. He is set to portray the role of a one famous photo journalist of a big national paper. However, life problems get in the way so he starts working for the paparrazi publication led by Han’s character.

Backing up Big Issue is PD Lee Dong Hoon who worked as director and producer for dramas That Winter The Wind Blows, Protect the Boss, and City Hunter. Penning the series would be Jang Hyuk Rin who wrote recent exciting thrillers The K2, Yong Pal, and Reset.

With their combined works, we are expecting polished and thrilling story. If romance will be added as one of the themes, then we can have high hopes on it.
