SF9’s Rowoon In Talks To Star In JTBC Drama Adaptation Of Popular Web Novel
On April 29, it was reported by News1 that Rowoon has been cast as the lead actor in the upcoming drama “Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick” (working title). The drama is based on a popular 2017 web novel of the same name. It tells the love story between a lovely “sunbae” (someone senior at work, school, or in an industry) and a bold “hoobae” (junior) who has it all: good looks, cuteness, sexiness, and a serious aura.
A source from FNC Entertainment clarified with Star News later that day, “Rowoon has received an offer to star in ‘Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick’ and he is considering the role.”
Rowoon debuted with SF9 in 2016 and has been active as both an idol and an actor. He first gained praise for his performances in supporting roles in dramas including “School 2017,” “About Time,” and “Where Stars Land.” Last year, he rose to stardom through his leading role in the hit drama “Extraordinary You.”
It’s reported that JTBC’s new drama is planned to premiere in October.
