Son Tae-young joins ‘Flames’
“I am honored to take part in this much-anticipated drama,” Son said. “Although it is true that I feel some pressure, I will try my best to play the role.”
Son will play Kumiko, who is supposed to be the image of a perfect, beautiful and eloquent woman.
Based on the story of the man who created Korean steel giant Posco, “Into the Flames” will be produced by Kim Sang-rae, who also made “The Fifth Republic,” a series about the 1980s that was criticized for being too positive about the Chun Doo-hwan regime.
The male lead, veteran actor Choi Su-jong, was confirmed in January.
Korean actor Ryu Jin, most recently seen in “The Prime Minister and I,” also confirmed his role in the drama yesterday.
