Lee Jung-jin confirmed for ‘K2’
According to the network, the story revolves around two characters: a bodyguard abandoned by his country and colleagues, and the daughter of a politician ambitious enough to use love as a means of revenge.
Lee’s specific role has not yet been announced.
The actor will be joined by co-stars Ji Chang-wook and Cho Seong-ha.
The upcoming drama will be the first in which Lee plays a lead role since SBS’s “Temptation” two years ago. It will be his first-ever project for tvN.
“K2” is scheduled to hit the air in September after “The Good Wife” finishes.
Since the 38-year-old entered the entertainment scene, Lee has taken roles in numerous dramas and films. Some of his best-known films include “Pieta” (2012) and “Once Upon a Time in High School” (2004). His most popular dramas have included “Love Story in Harvard” (2004) and “Two Outs in the Ninth Inning” (2007).
