Jang Dong Yoon In Talks To Star In New KBS Drama
Jang Dong Yoon may be starring in a brand-new drama!
On March 22, a source from the drama industry said, “Actor Jang Dong Yoon was offered the lead role of Lee Doo Hak in a new KBS 2TV drama titled ‘Oasis’ (literal title) and is positively reviewing it.” In response, his agency DongYi Company clarified, “‘Oasis’ is one of the projects he received an offer to star in.”
“Oasis” is set in the turbulent times of South Korea between the ’80s and ’90s. It depicts the fierce life, revenge, and conflict of young people who have to pursue power and wealth by any means in an era filled with wrong social values. The drama will be written by Jung Hyung Soo who wrote “The Jingbirok: A Memoir of Imjin War” and helmed by producing director (PD) Yoon Sung Sik who worked on “Mr. Queen.”
If Jang Dong Yoon accepts the offer, he will take the role of Lee Doo Hak, a young man who was born in a small city in Jeolla Province and grew up innocent with a clever brain. However, he fatefully becomes caught in a whirlpool of events and ends up in the middle of conflict. After going through a real estate fraud group, he becomes a “political gangster” and lives his life to avenge his father’s unjust death.
“Oasis” is scheduled to air in the second half of this year.
Jang Dong Yoon has impressed with his diverse roles in many dramas such as “The Tale of Nokdu” and “Search.” His newest drama “Joseon Exorcist” premieres on March 22 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
