Jang Ki Yong In Talks To Join New Fantasy Drama Based On Popular Webtoon
Jang Ki Yong is working on selecting his next project!
On June 10, an industry representative reported that the actor has been cast for a leading role in the drama adaptation of the hit webtoon “My Roommate is Gumiho.”
In response to the report, his agency YG Entertainment commented, “Jang Ki Yong received an offer to star in the drama ‘My Roommate is Gumiho’ and is considering the offer.”
The upcoming drama is based on a webtoon about a female college student who accidentally swallows the marble of a male gumiho (a mythological nine-tailed fox) and the romance that ensues.
Jang Ki Yong reportedly received an offer for the role of the gumiho Shin Woo Yeo. In response to this, his agency commented, “Because it is a project he is reviewing, it is difficult to reveal what the role is.”
“My Roommate is Gumiho” is reported to be led by director Baek Seung Ryong, who previously worked on “Pegasus Market,” and is in talks to premiere via tvN in the second half of the year.
