K-Drama Sneak Peek: “Hush” Intrigues With An Honest Depiction Of The Less Idealized Lives of Reporters

By  | 

JTBC’s upcoming drama, Hush, will portray the far-from-perfect lives of newspaper reporters. It aims to provide laughter to viewers and to resonate with the characters.

Hush will be premiering on December 11, starring Girls’ Generation Yoona and Hwang Jung Min. The drama will be focusing on the the stories of journalists as normal people, who live as ordinary office workers — more than what we often see in public.


Plot Sketch

Hush follows the story of Han Joon Hyuk (Hwang Jung Min), a veteran newspaper company reporter, and the zealous intern Lee Ji Soo (Im Yoona). Its narrative will revolve around the journalists as ordinary salary workers, who are constantly confronted and conflicted between survival and conscience.



Im Yoona as Lee Ji Soo

Im Yoona transforms as Lee Ji Soo, a bold intern reporter, who believes that food is mightier than pen. She is an energetic and charming woman who is not afraid to speak her mind.

After the incident that shook her family’s once happy life, she starts dreaming of becoming a journalist at the newspaper company “Everyday Korea”. There, Han Joon Hyuk became her mentor.

As an intern armed with passion and spirit, she will later grow up into a real journalist, while fighting for her survival at work.


Hwang Jung Min as Han Joon Hyuk

Hwang Jung Min takes the role of Han Joon Hyuk, a veteran reporter in a newspaper company, who will act as Lee Ji Soo’s superior. For 12 years, he had dreams of becoming a journalist who seeks nothing but only justice and truth. During those days he was more passionate than ever.

But after facing the reality filled with compromises and lies, rather than being interested with the things he used to pursue, he chooses to stay unbothered.


Creative Team

Produced by Keyeast Entertainment and JTBC Studio, Hush will be helmed by Director Choi Kyu Sik and Screenwriter Kim Jeong Min. It will premiere on December 11 at 11 PM KST, following More Than Friends.
