Lee Shi-A is cast for the lead female role in drama series “Four Men” co-starring Park Hae-Jin. Singer-actress Nana from idol group ‘After School’ was first cast to play the lead female character, but she dropped out of the drama series in August, 2018 due to production delays.

Director Jang Tae-Yoo dropped out of the drama series on May 30, 2018.

For the drama series, Lee Shi-A will play the lead female role of Yeo-Rin. Her character is a detective who is beautiful and full of justice. She meets Kang Il-Hoon (Park Hae-Jin) and gets involved at mysterious case. When filming will resume has yet to be announced.
