Lee Je-hoon cast in Netflix original series Move to Heaven
Tang Joon-sang, Lee Je-hoon
Move to Heaven: I Clean Dead People’s Possessions is about an adolescent with Asperger syndrome and a man who suddenly becomes his temporary guardian. Both Lee Je-hoon (Fox Bride Star) and teenage actor Tang Joon-sang (Crash Landing on You) have confirmed their casting as the main leads.
Lee Je-hoon will be playing an ex-convict who runs a deceased persons’ possessions company. Although his actions are rough, it’s because he’s lonely at heart. After his release from prison, he unexpectedly becomes saddled with a long-lost nephew, Tang Joon-sang’s character, who has Asperger syndrome. As they clean up the last possessions of the dead, they slowly learn the lessons and stories of those who have passed on.
Director Kim Sung-ho (How to Steal a Dog) and writer Yoon Ji-ryun (Angel Eyes) are teaming up to produce this drama, so I can tell already that Move to Heaven will pull on my heartstrings. Also, I am past ready for Lee Je-hoon’s comeback, but alas, the release date for this Netflix original series has not been announced yet.
