Jung Il Woo Considering Fusion Sageuk For First Drama After Mandatory National Service
Actor Jung Il Woo is looking into a fusion historical drama for his return to television. Currently carrying out his mandatory national service, Jung Il Woo will be done on December 2 this year.
A source from the actor’s agency, HB Entertainment, said on October 10, “Jung Il Woo is positively reviewing the new SBS weekend drama ‘Haechi.’ However, he is still in the middle of his service as a public service officer and is concentrating on his duties. At the moment, he is simply taking the project into consideration.”
Jung Il Woo would take on the role of Prince Yeoning in the drama, who, though the son of the king, is not acknowledged as heir to the throne because his mother is a commoner. “Haechi” is a bright story of adventure and how the prince teams up with a ragtag group of people to stake his claim to the throne. The drama is a fusion sageuk inspired by the mythological creature Haechi, a guardian of justice (and also the symbol of Seoul).
