Hyeri as heroine for 'Reply 1988'?

Reports this morning claim the Girl's Day Hyeri is going to be the heroine in the third sequel of hit tvN drama 'Reply 1994', formerly lead by actress Go Ara.

However, upon confirming with the PD of the upcoming sequel 'Reply 1988', he states, "It is not confirmed." Moreover, Hyeri's agency also clears up, "We didn't receive any casting offer so there's nothing to say about it."
