Fans are panicking over the possibility that three of the biggest Korean actors might be starring in this upcoming project.
On November 18, an industry representative reported that Wi Ha Joon has been cast in the upcoming drama “K Project” [working title].
In response to the reports, his agency MSTeam Entertainment confirmed the news. The exact details however, are still being worked out.
But why is this potentially one of the biggest casting news of a 2022 kdrama?
Previously, it was reported that Park Seo Joon and Han So Hee were in talks for the same project. The news first came out a couple of months ago.
Park Seo Joon is in talks to play the male lead Jang Tae Sang, and Han So Hee was reported to be considering a role in the drama.
“K Project” is a thriller about survival and human dignity. It will tell the story of youth who lived during a time when sovereignty and human rights were taken away from them, and how they put their lives on the line to achieve the most basic form of happiness.
It will be helmed by director Jung Dong Yoon of “Stove League” and written by Kang Eun Kyung of the “Dr. Romantic” series.
Wi Ha Joon is taking on the role of Kwon Joon Taek, who is Jang Tae Sang’s best friend. A man born into a wealthy background but feels hostility towards his pro-Japanese family.
Fans are hoping that Park Seo Joon and Han So Hee soon confirm for the project as well.
