Here’s a little bit of Jang Hyuk (Bad Papa) news for you. He’s been offered a role in the upcoming historical drama My Country which is already set to star Yang Se Jong (Thirty But Seventeen) and Woo Do Hwan (Great Seducer). AOA’s Seolhyun (Orange Marmalade) is also still considering a lead role as a woman skilled in martial arts.
Jang Hyuk would play the character of Lee Bang Won who ultimately went on to become king at the beginning of the Joseon era. I’m not sure if I could handle all of these actors in one drama! Of course, I was already excited for this one, but count my anticipation levels as going up even more at the thought of Jang Hyuk returning to a historical drama. So now we wait!
My Country is set at the end of the Goryeo era and follows the story of two friends where one is the son (Yang Se Jong) of a powerful general who can’t stand injustice and one (Woo Do Hwan) wants to pass the military service exam but meets challenges because of his background.
My Country is planning to air the second half of 2019 on JTBC.
