Korean broadcaster Channel A will be producing a remake of American tv show Jane The Virgin, to air in December 2019.

The original comedy series focuses on Jane, a virgin who becomes accidentally pregnant after being mistakenly artificially inseminated by her doctor. The US series features Gina Rodriguez in the lead role, and the show navigates Jane's journey into unexpected motherhood while balancing her relationship with her current boyfriend Michael, and the father of the child, Rafael.

According to reports, Kim Jaejoong is in talks to play the equivalent role to that of Rafael from the original series. His character, Han Ji Hoon, is the heir of a hotel and is a good-looking guy with an average personality. 

Jaejoong's agency has said the idol is currently reviewing the offer to play the role. If he takes it up, it will be his first drama since 2017's Manhole.
