“Produce X 101” Contestant Park Sun Ho To Join Choi Jin Hyuk In New OCN Drama
On October 24, Park Sun Ho’s agency announced that the actor had officially joined the cast of OCN’s “Rugal” (literal title), a drama adaptation of the popular webtoon of the same name. Not only will the drama mark his first acting project since his appearance on Mnet’s “Produce X 101” earlier this year, but it will also mark his very first time taking on the action genre.
“Rugal” is a new action revenge drama about an elite detective (played by Choi Jin Hyuk) who attempts to bring down a nationwide criminal organization named Argos. In the process, he ends up being targeted by the powerful criminals behind Argos, and not only does he lose his beloved wife and both of his eyes, but he is also framed for murder. With the help of an organization named Rugal, which has gathered a team of “human weapons” with special powers created through biotechnology, he receives a set of artificial eyes and sets out on a quest to wipe out Argos once and for all.
Park Sun Ho will play the role of Lee Kwang Chul, a young police officer who is attacked by Argos but rescued by Rugal’s leader Tae Woong (played by Jo Dong Hyuk). With his good looks and witty sense of humor, the charming Lee Kwang Chul ends up joining Rugal as the team’s mood-maker.
Expressing his excitement about the drama, Park Sun Ho remarked, “I’ll be greeting viewers for the first time in a year through ‘Rugal.’ It’s truly an honor to be able to act together with such a great director and senior actors that I have always admired. As I’ve always wanted to try taking on the noir genre, I will work hard to prepare for the action scenes as well as my acting, so that I can show you good things [through the drama]. Thank you.”
“Rugal” is currently scheduled to air sometime in the first half of 2020. Last week, veteran actor Park Sung Woong and actress Han Ji Wan confirmed that they would be also be starring in the upcoming drama.
