Queen Seon-deok‘s breakout star Kim Nam-gil, aka Bi-dam, has picked his next project: he’ll take the lead role in the drama Bad Guy [나쁜남자], which will be directed by PD Lee Hyung-min of Snow Queen, I’m Sorry, I Love You and Sangdoo, Let’s Go To School. (The drama was also a possible contender for being Lee Min-ho’s comeback, but as we know, he chose Personal Taste instead. I’m pretty satisfied on both ends of this one.)
Bad Guy is a melodrama that tells the story of a modern man’s path to achieving his secret ambitions. The role calls for Kim Nam-gil to be “masculine but also sexy” as a bold man with his eye on becoming a third-generation chaebol; he uses his considerable skills and smarts to take over a chaebol group.
The drama is aiming to air in the first half of 2010; aside from Kim, the production is still casting the other lead male and female roles.
