On August 30th, Lee Elijah's agency Ungbin ENS shared, "Actress Lee Elijah will be the female lead for the new Coupang Play drama. Please show your interest and love."

Aside from that, Lee Elijah was spotted in the script reading of "Chronicles of Crime" today together with other cast. 

"Chronicles of Crime" is a 12-part series that will showcase the journey of digging the truths of past unsolved incidents through brutal current events.
