On April 24th, a video about the production of the drama “Eve” on tvN’s official Youtube channel. The video included the filming site atmosphere, script reading, and interviews with the cast actors, including Seo Ye-ji.
Seo Ye-ji will take on the role of Lee Ra-el, who designs revenge in the drama. After the shocking death of her father during her childhood, she plans to take revenge and becomes the center of a 2 trillion won divorce lawsuit for an upper-class couple that belongs to the top 0.1% in Korea.

I’m Seo Ye-ji who plays Lee Ra-el. Nice to meet you all”. Regarding her character, Seo Ye-ji explained, “Everything in her life was taken away by people who are blinded by money. This character grows up vowing revenge in a moment of her terrible pain and anger”.
She added, “Ra-el begins her revenge by risking everything she has. A lot of things are eventually intertwined in the revenge. Love, betrayal, and conspiracy are interesting topics that can show how each person’s desires will end up being like”. The actress concluded the interview by saying, “I hope the audience will enjoy the drama”, encouraging the viewers to look forward to “Eve”.

In the future, I will try to act more carefully and show you a more mature appearance.”
Seo Ye-ji chose to return at a time when various suspicions were not solved. It remains to be seen whether Seo Ye-ji will be able to change the public’s mind in a situation where cold reactions and unfavorable gazes continue.
