Jung Il Woo Is Latest Actor in Talks to Star as Vampire Surgeon in “Blood”
Previously, it was reported that actor Yoo Yeon Seok was in talks to lead the upcoming KBS drama, “Blood.” Now that offer has been made to Jung Il Woo and the “The Night Watchman” actor is reporting to be positively considering the role. Yoo Yeon Seok declined the role due to scheduling conflicts.
Jung Il Woo has been offered the role of the male lead, Park Ji Sang, a vampire who is a surgeon at a cancer center. He is described as a hero that struggles to preserve the nobility and justice of the lives of terminally ill patients. His only fault is his desire and hunger for blood, something he struggles to surpress. He is a “dark hero” that doesn’t regard his fate as a curse, but uses his superhuman abilities to help others.
“Blood” will be directed by Ki Min Soo who also directed “Ojakkyo Brothers” and “Good Doctor.” The series will be written by Park Jae Bum who also penned “God’s Quiz” and “Good Doctor.” It is slated to premiere in February of next year.
