As usual, Jang Hyuk (Bad Papa) likes to keep busy and is now confirmed for the upcoming historical drama My Country. He will play Lee Bang Won who ultimately went on to become king at the beginning of the Joseon era.
AOA’s Seolhyun (Orange Marmalade) has also confirmed her lead role as an intelligent woman who is unhappy with the corruption that has developed in her country. They both join Yang Se Jong (Thirty But Seventeen) and Woo Do Hwan (Great Seducer) who are set to star.
Wow is about all I can say about this cast! I never would have imagined getting to see Jang Hyuk in this drama too after Yang Se Jong and Woo Do Hwan signed on. And I’m looking forward to getting another look at Seolhyun after enjoying her in Orange Marmalade. I really can’t wait to see this drama come together!
My Country is set during the tumultuous period at the end of the Goryeo era and follows the story of two friends, one being the son (Yang Se Jong) of a powerful general who can’t stand injustice and one (Woo Do Hwan) who wants to pass the military service exam but meets challenges because of his background, as they try to protect their country with the help of a woman (Seolhyun) they meet.
My Country is planning to air the second half of 2019 on JTBC.
