Seo Kang Joon has reportedly received a casting offer for the male lead, Hong Joo Won, in the upcoming MBC historical drama “Hwajung” (working title). The Monday-Tuesday drama will air in spring. He has yet to make a final decision.
The character Hong Joo Won will be the eldest son from an elite family during the Joseon Dynasty. His character will be a genius who doesn’t hold back from saying harsh comments to high-ranking officials. Hong Joo Won will experience love and betrayal with Princess Jeongmyeong (a real historical princess). His character will embark upon a journey of making the world a better place. The role of Princess Jeongmyeong will be played by Lee Yeon Hee.
Seo Kang Joon is currently acting in KBS 2TV’s weekend drama “What’s With This Family?” and is receiving favorable reviews about his good looks and acting skills. If Seo Kang Joon takes the offer for “Hwajung,” he will have to prepare for the role after finishing “What’s With This Family?”
“Hwajung” will be centered on Princess Jeongmyeong who was born as a princess, but must disguise herself as dead due to power struggles. Cha Seung Won and Lee Yeon Hee have confirmed their roles and “Hwajung” is slated to broadcast next spring after “Shine or Go Crazy” which will follow up “Pride and Prejudice.”
