A spokesperson for the television network confirmed the news, and explained that Choi Woo Sik will be playing the title role, although full casting has not yet been completed.
The spokesperson said, “Choi Woo Sik’s character is something of a softy. Uee will be playing a character called Do Do Hee, who is a beautiful swimmer, while Park Jing Min will play the role of Byun Kang Chul, who is perfect in every way.”
The representative added, “We are currently casting the other major characters that will also play a large part in the drama’s story. We hope to complete the casting process soon and begin filming.”
“Hogu’s Love” is slated to begin airing on tvN sometime in February 2015.
