Kim Kang-woo courted for JTBC drama with Su Ae
Actor Kim Kang-woo (9.9 Billion Won Woman) is considering a return to the small screen as the male lead for JTBC’s Gong Jak City. It’s a mystery psychological thriller that has also been courting Su Ae (The Man Living in Our House) to be the female lead since last December.
Gong Jak City is to tell the story of a dark society that only survives through the sacrifices of a few, and hides its sinister side from most. Characters with different ambitions and psychologies from this society become entangled in a messy, tension-filled situation. In terms of casting, nothing is confirmed, but it’s been reported that Kim Kang-woo and Su Ae are both reviewing the script positively.
Kim Kang-woo really seems to be enjoying the thriller genre as this could be his second thriller drama in a row. In the meanwhile if you want to see Kim Kang-woo in something, his new movie It’s Before the New Year also premieres soon.
Written by Sohn Sae-dong and directed by PD Jeon Chang-geun (Mystic Pop-up Bar), Gong Jak City will begin filming as soon as casting is confirmed.
