Reports earlier today claimed that Highlight’s Lee Gi Kwang would be joining the cast of tvN’s “Circle” (tentative title), making this his first acting project as a member of Highlight. Since then, it has been confirmed that Lee Gi Kwang along with actors Yeo Jin Goo and Kim Kang Woo, who were both considering roles, will all be joining the cast for “Circle.”
On March 3, a press release from tvN stated, “Yeo Jin Goo and Kim Kang Woo have been confirmed for the role as the main character and they have entered pre-production. Lee Gi Kwang and Gong Seung Yeon have also been confirmed for roles.”
“Circle” will have two actors for the lead role, as the narrative will take place in both the present year of 2017 and in 2037 as well. Yeo Jin Goo will play the role of Woo Jin in the year 2017 as a college student while Kim Kang Woo will play the same character in the year 2037 as a homicide detective.
Lee Gi Kwang will take on a role as a public servant in the year 2037 and will mainly be interacting with Kim Kang Woo in the drama. Gong Seung Yeon was previously confirmed to be playing the role of Jung Yeon, a woman who goes to the same college as main character Woo Jin.
