All the cast members recently gathered together for their first script reading, which kicked-off with a direct address from judge Moon Yoo Suk.
"Miss Hammurabi is the story of people who, even on a small scale, try to change the world from where they stand. All of you who are here today are the true writers of the drama, the ones who will cast the spell to bring the words to life and make them stand up from the page," Soompi quoted him.
After the script reading, director Kwak Jung Hwan praised all the cast members for their touching performances. "I worried a lot about how to transfer the script to the screen, but I was emotionally moved after seeing the actors play their roles,' he said.
Miss Hammurabi is scheduled to premiere on JTBC in May 2018.
