Woo Do Hwan In Talks To Appear In Historical Drama Alongside Yang Se Jong
On December 13, industry sources reported that Woo Do Hwan had been cast in the upcoming drama “My Country” (literal translation).
Later the same day, his agency, KeyEast, clarified to Newsen that the actor was still in talks, stating, “He is positively reviewing the offer from ‘My Country.'”
“My Country” will be directed by Kim Jin Won, who has previously directed “Just Between Lovers,” and written by Chae Seung Dae, who has previously written “Master: God of Noodles.” Yang Se Jong has also received a casting offer from the drama, which according to his agency is still under discussion.
If Woo Do Hwan takes the role, he will be playing a character named Nam Sun Ho. The character is good-looking and skilled in the literary and martial arts, but his mother’s servant status prevents him from rising high in society. He is friends with a character named Seo Hwi (potentially played by Yang Se Jong) and dreams of passing the military examination, but his father’s corruption costs him his dream as well as his friendship with Seo Hwi.
This would also be Woo Do Hwan’s first historical drama.
“My Country” tells the story of three people trying to protect their love from the vortex of history. It is slated to air sometime during the summer of 2019.
