Will ‘The Price of Confession’ be a queer K-drama?: The online buzz

The news of Song Hye Kyo and Han So Hee’s collaboration garnered significant buzz online. Fans are excited to see two powerhouse actresses sharing the screen for the first time, with many hoping for a dynamic and intense performance.

Adding to the hype is the speculation that The Price of Confession could be a “girls love” (GL) series, which would depict a romantic relationship between the two female characters.

  • Han So Hee’s Instagram comments on Song Hye Kyo’s posts led to this speculation. In Hye Kyo’s post after the release of The Glory Part 2, So Hee may have dropped a ‘flirtatious’ comment on the post. The actress wrote “이제는 내꺼야…” [And now, she’s mine…]

  • She didn’t stop there though. So Hee commented on a July 2022 post of Hye Kyo saying, “나도!! 나도 여기서 사진찍었눈데!!!!!!!!“ [Me too!! I also took a picture here too!!!!!!!!] Well, Hye Kyo replied to her saying, 담엔 같이 찐자!!!!!!! [Let’s take it together next time!!!!!!!]

They’re having their ‘lovestagram’ moment for a while. Hye Kyo returned the favor and liked a few posts of So Hee as well. Will it be GL K-drama? There’s no confirmation about that yet, but pretty sure we can expect more information once production starts. But if it comes out as a GL, pretty sure this would be huge in South Korea, and internationally too.

  • While some fans eagerly anticipate this possibility, others are hoping for a more familial dynamic between the characters. Regardless of the direction the drama takes, ‘The Price of Confession’ is sure to be one of the most highly-anticipated K-dramas of the year. With Song Hye Kyo and Han So Hee at the helm, fans are in for a thrilling ride.
