Squid Game star Wi Ha-joon is set to star in a new Korean drama called K Project, with fellow South Korean stars Park Seo-joon and Han So-hee in talks to also participate in the upcoming project.
According to a Soompi report, the actor’s agency MSTeam Entertainment said that he would be playing the lead role of Kwon Joon-taek, but the “exact details are currently being sorted out.”
Itaewon Class and What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim star Seo-joon is reportedly in talks to play the lead role of Jang Tae-sang, Kwon’s best friend in the series, while My Name and The World of the Married star So-hee is “considering a role in the drama.”
K Project, which was previously called Gyeongseong Creature, will be a “thriller about survival and human dignity” set during a time where freedom and human rights don’t exist. Kwon Joon-taek comes from a wealthy family but is hostile towards them as they are pro-Japanese.
The drama will be directed by Stove League and Fates and Furies’ Jung Dong-yoon, and written by Dr. Romantic’s Kang Eun-kyung.
Wi Ha-joon is also known for his roles in films Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum, Shark: The Beginning, and Midnight, as well as in other K-dramas like Something in the Rain, Romance Is a Bonus Book, and 18 Again. – Rappler.com
