Lee Jae Wook and Park Gyu Young may be meeting in a new drama!
On January 25, an industry representative reported that the two actors will be starring in the upcoming KBS drama “Dal Li and Gamja-tang” (literal title).
Lee Jae Wook’s agency VAST Entertainment responded regarding the report, “It is one of the projects he was offered,” while Park Gyu Young’s agency Saram Entertainment commented, “She received a casting offer and is positively reviewing it.”
The drama is about the unexpected romance that occurs as Jin Mu Hak tries to steal an art museum from Kim Dal Li.
Park Gyu Young was offered the role of Kim Dal Li, who was a visiting researcher at Kröller-Müller Museum and then becomes the director of Chungsong Art Museum. She is a character whose speech and actions are always classy and considerate. Dal Li enjoys studying diverse fields such as art, philosophy, and religion, and she is proficient in seven languages.
Lee Jae Wook has been offered the role of Jin Mu Hak, whose family grew a tiny gamja-tang (spicy pork back bone stew) restaurant into the global food corporation DonDon F&B. Although he is a director of the company, he is far from intelligent and was always ranked last in his class when he was in school.
“Dal Li and Gamja-tang” will be written by Son Eun Hye, who previously created “Witch’s Love,” along with Park Se Eun, and it will be directed by Lee Jung Sub.
