tvN confirmed its casting for "Birth of a Tragedy." Ji Jin Hee, Yoon Se Ah, and Kim Hye Eun will work together under the direction of Kim No Won. The drama will be produced by Studio Dragon and The Great Show. The story will be produced by writer Yoon Hee Jung. 

"Birth of a Tragedy" will narrate the lives of Koreans in the top 1 percent living in Royal The Hill. The drama will represent ultra rich people's ugly desires, guilt, and more.

Ji Jin Hee will play the character of Baek Soo Hyun, a national news anchor. He's a trusted journalist in Korea as he always points out the truth. 

Yoon Se Ah will play the role of Baek Soo Hyun's wife,  Seo Eun Soo. She also happen to be the daughter from a chaebol (conglomerate) family.  She loves her family the most and will do everything to protect it. 

Kim Hye Eun will play the role of Cha Seo Young, an announcer from the news agency. She is still desperate for more even though she has everything that others desire like her job, academic background, beauty, and a perfect family.

These brilliant actors are also starring in other projects this year. Aside from "Birth of a Tragedy," Ji Jin Hee will also appear in the upcoming BBC drama remake "Undercover." He will also star in the Netflix series "Move to Heaven" with Lee Je Hoon. Viewers can also look forward to Yoon Se Ah's other drama project "Snowdrop" with main leads Jung Hae In and BLACKPINK's Kim Ji Soo. Lastly, this will be Kim Hye Eun's first drama in 2021. She starred in several dramas in 2020 and it is expected that she will also do the same this year. 

"Birth of a Tragedy" is scheduled to air in the second half of 2021.
