Only five months after MBC’s “Rebel: The Thief Who Stole the People,” Kim Ji Suk is returning to the screen for the MBC drama “20th Century Boy and Girl.” The upcoming drama will be Kim Ji Suk’s first lead role in a romantic comedy, which is drawing a lot of excitement from fans.
In “Rebel: The Thief Who Stole the People,” Kim Ji Suk portrayed the tyrannical King Yeon San unlike any previous performance of the historical character. His performance consistently brought him high praise and even became known as his “lifetime role.” Through his delicate performance, King Yeon San was depicted in a whole new light and featured new aspects to the role.
Compared to his last role in “Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People” in which his character was crazed and cold blooded, “20th Century Boy and Girl” shows his intellectual side and is the perfect mix of talents and visuals. His character Gong Ji Won will highlight his unique charm as a sweet and straightforward romantic man.
Kim Ji Suk stole the hearts of women viewers in tvN’s “I Need Romance 2” and last year’s “Another Oh Hae Young” where he showed off his lovableness, good sense, vitality, as well as his viability as a “romantic comedy king.” Ladies will not have to wait much longer to catch a glimpse at his heart-fluttering visuals and wide acting spectrum this fall.
