Yoo Seung-ho mulling a role in KBS series
“We are currently discussing whether Yoo will join the upcoming project, in addition to deciding on which days the series will be aired,” the source said. The new drama is scheduled to be released in October.
If confirmed, Yoo will portray an emotional character in his mid-20s who used to be a member of a gang. He is a warm-hearted man whose ultimate purpose in life is to protect his family. The webtoon-based drama touches on the theme of familial love.
The webtoon was created by Yoo Hyun-sook, who already made a name for herself through numerous popular works such as “I Steal Peeks at Him Every Day” and “Hogu’s Love,” both of which were turned into TV dramas. “I Steal Peeks at Him Every Day” is the original title of “Flower Boys Next Door” (2013).
The 22-year-old actor is known to have been offered numerous projects for the latter part of this year, in both movies and dramas. Since making his debut in 2000, Yoo Seung-ho has starred in many works, including the TV drama “Remember: War of the Son” (2015-16) and the movie “Blind” (2011).
