BIA4’s Baro nabs role in ‘Angry Mom’
In the Wednesday-Thursday drama series that will air in March, Baro will play the role of a high school student named Hong Sang-tae.
Born to an affluent family, Hong has everything he needs at home and at school. But later in the series he starts being challenged by Ah-ran, played by Kim Yu-jung.
Kim is a popular teen actress. The 16-year-old recently starred in the drama series “Secret Door” and the film “Elegant Lies” (2014). She’s also hosting a weekly TV music show “Inkigayo” on SBS.
Baro, 23, debuted in show business four years ago as a member of B1A4, but he began his acting career with cable TV drama “Reply 1994” in 2013.
After the series, he was cast as a man in his 20s with the mental age of a 6-year-old in “God’s Gift - 14 Days” last year.
Most recently, Baro voiced an animated character for the feature film “The 7th Dwarf.”
Along with Baro, actress Kim Hee-sun of “Wonderful Days,” actor Ji Hyun-woo of “Trot Lovers” and singer-actor Lizzy of girl group After School have been cast for “Angry Mom,” in which a mother who once bullied her classmates re-enters high school as a student to help her child, who is the victim of bullying.
