Rowoon In Talks For New Historical Drama
On January 19, an industry representative reported that Rowoon will be starring in the upcoming drama “Sending Me to You.” Rowoon’s agency FNC Entertainment clarified regarding the report, “‘Sending Me to You’ (literal title) is one of the casting offers he has received.”
“Sending Me to You” is a comedic romance set during the Joseon dynasty. It tells the story of the meeting between the young widow Jung Soon Deok and young widower Shim Jung Woo as well as the struggle the two go through together to marry off the four young maidens who represent Joseon.
Rowoon received an offer to play the role of Shim Jung Woo. Shim Jung Woo has a brilliant mind and such natural good looks that others can’t help but look over their shoulder when they pass by. He couldn’t stay out of the spotlight as when he turned 17, the princess fell for him, and he became the son-in-law of the king.
However, the the princess collapsed during their wedding ceremony, leaving Shim Jung Woo a widower and the king’s son-in-law at the age of 17. He asks for their marriage to be invalidated and requests his talents simply be used to help his country. This all leads to him entering the matchmaking business, working to marry off the young maidens in the country under the king’s orders.
“Sending Me to You” may be Rowoon’s next historical drama after starring in the hit series “The King’s Affection,” creating much anticipation. Rowoon is also currently gearing up for his upcoming drama “Destined with You” with Jo Bo Ah.
