Seo Ji Hoon has been confirmed as a part of the main cast of a new drama!
On May 14, his agency Management Koo revealed, “Seo Ji Hoon will be appearing in ‘Gyeryong Goddess’ (literal title).”
Based on a webtoon,”Gyeryong Goddess” will be directed by Kim Yoon Chul of “My Name Is Kim Sam Soon” and written by Yoo Kyung Sun of the novel “Movie Star Wang Jo Hyun.” The comedic fantasy drama is about Sun Ock Nam (Moon Chae Won), a 699-year-old fairy who lived through the Goryeo and Joseon dynasties. In the present, she finds two men (Seo Ji Hoon and Yoon Hyun Min) who seem to be possible reincarnations of her late husband. Seo Ji Hoon will be playing the role of Kim Geum, a graduate student with a good-natured personality.
About his casting, Seo Ji Hoon expressed, “It is a huge honor to be appearing in a drama of Kim Yoon Chul’s, whom I respect. I sincerely thank the director for trusting and giving the still-lacking me a good opportunity. While I do feel burdened by playing a lead character, I have been responsibly trying very hard while diligently studying for the past few months in order to act well and do not become a bother, given the belief people have shown me. I ask that you look forward [to this drama].”
Seo Ji Hoon made his onscreen debut through tvN’s “Signal” in 2014 as the main culprit in the Inju female student case. He has since been building his filmography with roles in popular dramas like “School 2017” and “Prison Playbook,” and most recently starred in JTBC’s “Misty.”
