Actor Namgoong Min has been cast as the male lead for SBS‘ upcoming weekend drama entitled “Beast’s Beauty” (literal translation).
On March 24, his agency 935 Entertainment confirmed that he will be portraying the main character An Dante, a charming ladies man who has gone from an ex-con to a human rights lawyer and finally become the heir of a chaebol.
This will mark Namgoong Min’s first time to star in a drama airing on a major broadcasting station (KBS, MBC, SBS) since his debut. According to his agency, they have been contacted by drama and film representatives ever since Namgoong Min’s impressive performance on the SBS drama “Remember,” but they have decided to continue working with SBS for his next project.
“Beast’s Beauty” will start filming in mid-April, and is expected to premiere in May after “Mrs. Cop 2” ends its run.
