On March 2, SBS confirmed that the actors were considering the leading roles in the upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “Greasy Melo” (literal title).
A representative for the network stated, “We have made casting offers to Lee Junho and Jang Hyuk. Nothing has been decided yet, and we are currently in the midst of discussions.” Sources inside Jang Hyuk’s agency similarly confirmed, “While it’s true that he has received a casting offer, [his appearance] has not been decided. We are still in the midst of discussions.”
Actress Jung Ryeo Won’s agency also remarked, “It hasn’t been long since we received the script. A little more discussion is required.”
“Greasy Melo” will tell the story of a star chef who goes from running the kitchen at the top Chinese restaurant in Korea to working at a dingy neighborhood restaurant on the brink of closing. Junho has been offered the role of talented chef Seo Poong, while Jang Hyuk has been offered the role of Doo Chil Seo, a powerful gangster recently released from prison.
“Greasy Melo” is currently scheduled to premiere in May, following the end of “Should We Kiss First.”
