“Maze Runner” Star Ki Hong Lee To Make Korean Drama Debut Opposite Ha Ji Won And Jin Goo
Hollywood actor Ki Hong Lee will be making his Korean small-screen debut next year!
On August 24, the upcoming drama “Prometheus” confirmed that the Korean-American actor, who is best-known for his role in the popular “Maze Runner” film series, had officially joined its cast.
The drama’s producers announced, “Hollywood actor Ki Hong Lee has been cast as a CIA agent. We are looking forward to his appearance [in the production], which we expect will give rise to an even more realistic drama.”
Although Ki Hong Lee was first offered the role of CIA agent Frank Lee eight months ago, the actor was reportedly especially careful in considering the offer because he had never appeared in a Korean drama before.
“Prometheus,” which will also star Ha Ji Won, Jin Goo, and Park Ki Woong, is a spy thriller about the unexpected disappearance of three North Korean scientists and the international politics involved in the tense, complicated situation.
The drama is scheduled to begin filming in late September and is currently aiming for a premiere sometime in the first half of 2019.
