K-pop idols star on ‘Kindaichi’
“Kindaichi,” better known as “Kim Jeon-il” to Korean fans, was one of the best-selling manga series in Japan in the 1990s. Having sold more than 90 million copies in total, it has since been translated into animated feature films, dramas and movies.
Seung-ri appeared on a special episode called “Hong Kong Kowloon Treasure Murder Case” last year after promoting his Japanese solo EP “Let’s Talk About Love.” He played a Korean student studying in Hong Kong.
Nichkhun, on the other hand, acted as a mysterious schoolboy in a January episode and gained enormous attention from local media.
The drama is slated to air from next Tuesday at 11 p.m.
