Yook Sung-jae to star in new drama
The 20-year-old expressed his reaction through his talent agency, Cube Entertainment, on Wednesday, saying, “I’m greatly honored to become a main cast member in the drama series airing on Wednesday and Thursday.
“I was actually quite cautious in taking part in the project. I will try my best not to pose any negative influence on participating senior actors, including actress Moon Geun-young.”
Yook debuted in the entertainment industry as a member of BTOB in 2012 with the digital single “Insane.” He extended his career to acting by taking on a minor role in tvN’s hit drama “Reply 1994” in 2013. He then went on to star in the lead role of “Plus Nine Boys” in 2014 and “Who Are You: School 2015” this year.
In the upcoming drama, the celebrity will take on the role of a policeman who plays a major role in solving a mysterious case that unfolds. The series is slated to air in October as a follow-up to “Yong Pal Yi.”
