Song Seung Heon on the prowl for his next drama
Top Hallyu star Song Seung Heon completed his mandatory military service some time ago but hasn’t been seen in a project yet. The man’s popularity was so high that producers and broacasting companies were scrambling in anticipation of his release to nab him for his first post-army job, which was just as eagerly awaited by his legions of fans, a large contingent of which comes from Japan.
And who can blame the fans? The guy IS pretty. Really, really pretty. I don’t think his acting’s exceptional but he’s still really, really, really pretty. (His picture is in one of my headers and I always think he looks like an android straight out of A.I. (Artificial Intelligence, not Idol), such is the prettiness of his sculpted face.)
Anyway. So he’s currently filming a movie, but the broadcast stations are angling to be home to his next drama project. Presently he’s deciding between the lures of KBS or SBS (what happened to MBC?). Of the projects he’s deciding between is the KBS2 series to air next March, Persona, a joint Korea-Turkey noir drama that plans to also license broadcast rights in Europe.
On the other hand, he’s got a project to consider at SBS, working with the PD of the recent megahit drama War of Money, who can’t reveal anything about the drama just yet.
Song Seung Heon has worked with both stations in the past, appearing in KBS’s dramas Summer Scent and Autumn Fairy Tale, as well as SBS’s Law Firm and Popcorn.
