‘Superman’ star mulls role in drama
Actor Song Il-gook has been offered to star in KBS’s new drama “Jang Yeong-sil,” which could be a big hit for the TV personality.
The 43-year-old, who has been receiving a lot of attention after taking part in “The Return of Superman” with his triplets last year, is currently mulling over the offer, as his new project is very likely to interfere with his continued appearance on the reality show.
“I will make a decision within this month,” Song said. His talent agency, Haneol Entertainment, further stated on Thursday that “nothing has been determined yet. Song will soon have to make up his mind.”
From Song’s perspective, the upcoming drama could be an excellent opportunity, as the actor has not been participating in a drama series since 2011. However, it would not be an easy choice for him to leave the variety show that led him to his current stardom.
Kang Bong-kyu, the producer of “The Return of Superman,” said, “We heard nothing from Song, and we never negotiated on the issue,” adding, “As far as I’m concerned, I assume he will continue starring in the program.”
In response to the issue, some fans are claiming that if the schedules are planned properly, it could be possible for Song to participate in both the reality show and the upcoming drama.
