Currently working with fellow talented actor Yang Se Jong and senior actor Jang Hyuk for jTBC’s My Country, Woo will greet Korean drama fans in the second half of 2019.

A representative from Woo Do Hwan’s agency affirmed the casting news relaying the actor will head to filming as soon as My Country wraps up.
Similar to Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun’s released dual portrayals, Woo also takes two roles. In modern Korea, he is an ordinary social worker, where as in Korean empire world, he is the guardian of Lee’s character.
Taking the parallel world theme, The King: the Eternal Monarch depicts the story of Emperor Lee Gon, who is fighting off a supernatural villain by closing the door that leads to another dimension. In the other dimension, he seeks the help of his detective counterpart and Jung Tae Eul.
