Eom Ki-joon turns reporter in Hero
Actor Eom Ki-joon — adorable in Job Well Done and a charming bastard in The World They Live In — has been added to the new MBC drama Hero, aka the Lee Junki vehicle also starring Han Ji-min.
The drama features all three as reporters, with Lee Junki’s character recklessly rushing in to help others and Han Ji-min’s being passionate about the world’s injustices. Eom is “cool-headed and cold-hearted” as an “elite” politics reporter who is also the son of the head of a large corporation but keeps his family history hidden. Behind his clean, calm façade the character harbors a mean streak, making him a complete 180 from his recent Job Well Done character.
Eom Ki-joon has certainly shown he can do both nice and mean equally convincingly, and make both extremes entertaining. And funny. A smart addition to the cast, I’m thinking.
Hero will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays following U-Know Yunho and Go Ara‘s soccer drama Heading to the Ground, and begins filming in September.
