Yeon Jung-hoon returns to network
Yeon is finalizing plans with MBC to take a leading role in the upcoming weekend show tentatively named “Come Out Gold,” according to local media reports yesterday.
He will play Park Hyun-soo, the eldest son of a jewelry business owner. Park, a divorcee, finds a new love with independent jewelry designer Jung Mong-hee during his short visit to Korea from overseas.
Jung will be played by Han Ji-hye, who gained popularity in drama “May Queen” and movie “My Boyfriend Is Type B.”
Lee Soo-kyung, well-known for her role in the 2011 drama “Color of Women,” will play a wealthy jewelry designer who is friends with Han.
The drama will air next month after “Rascal Sons.”
Yeon’s last network TV drama was “East of Eden,” which aired on MBC in 2009.
He also appeared in “Vampire Prosecutor 2” of cable channel OCN last year.
