Jung Suk Won has joined the cast of upcoming SBS drama, “Rooftop Prince,” it was announced today. He will play the role of Woo Yong Sool, a big yet soft-hearted “macho” character. With the addition of Jung Suk Won, “Rooftop Prince” will have a quite powerful casting crew, including JYJ’s Yoochun, Lee Min Ho, and Han Ji Min.
Jung Suk Won’s character is the Chosun dynasty’s best sword fighter, with a ripped body and a big heart that values friendship over anything. But he also has a soft side to him, blushing and turning shy in front of girls.
“I’m honored to join this show. I can already feel the young energy from this drama. Since this role involves both romance and action, I’ll make sure to bring different sides of me to the show,” Jung Suk Won said in a statement.
Jung Suk Won gained the public’s recognition after coming out with his relationship with Baek Ji Young last May. They’ve been dating for over eight months already by the time of the announcement, and have been in a good relationship as they were also spotted shopping and drinking together last month.
