Kim Kang-woo courted for Golden Cross
Will this drama ever find its hero? I’m actually more intrigued by the behind-the-scenes drama of KBS’s newest revenge melo Golden Cross than in the drama itself, but one thing’s for sure: if Kim Kang-woo (Tabloid) signs on, I will suddenly find myself verrry interested. The new Wednesday-Thursday drama for KBS’s spring slate has cycled through names like Kang Ji-hwan and Park Shi-hoo to play its leading man, and is now reportedly wooing Kim Kang-woo to play its revenge-seeking hero.
Both Lee Shi-young (Killer Toon) and Eom Ki-joon (The Virus) are still considering the drama as well (The production has now clarified that Eom Ki-joon is up for the role of a Korean-American businessman, which would make him the second lead.) and the only secured roles are Han Eun-jung (Gumiho: Tale of the Fox’s Child) playing a mystery woman and Jung Bo-seok (Goddess of Fire Jung-yi) as the villain.
The new revenge melodrama from the writer of Gaksital and the PD of Be Strong Mr. Kim is about a man who becomes a prosecutor so that he can go after his sister’s killer. The villain also happens to be the heroine’s father, which adds yet another tragic twist. She’s also a prosecutor, but naturally has no idea that her father is hiding such a frightening secret.
Kim Kang-woo is considering favorably for now. I’m excited at the prospect of a strong drama role for him because I don’t want him to stick to movies all the time, and frankly his last drama (the silly rom-com Haeundae Lovers) was just a blatant waste of his talent. I mean, he was funny in it, but the show was cornfed at best. Kim Kang-woo can sizzle, so let’s let him sizzle, shall we?
Golden Cross follows Age of Feeling and premieres in April.
