Kim Jung Hyun Switches To Emotional Role With Seo Hyun In Upcoming Drama “Time”
Kim Jung Hyun seems intent to keep his 2018 momentum as he is set to challenge himself with melodrama titled Time.
On May 3, the actor confirmed his appearance through his agency O& Entertainment that he was cast for the lead role of upcoming MBC drama slated for screening in July 2018.
Time delves to the story of a man, who spends the last hour of his life struggling to devote everything for his broken life.
Kim Jung Hyun’s new character is a complete reversal from his wacky role in sleeper hit comedy drama Eulachacha Waikiki, which just wrapped up last month.
Based on his stint in Rebel, the motivating actor, who seems keen to broaden his acting portfolio with unlikely combination of roles he played so far, K-drama viewers should look forward to this new project.
Writer Choi Ho Cheol, known for well-made weep fest dramas that include Secret Love and Mask, will pen the story, while PD Jang Jun Ho (Start Again, Hotel King) handles the production.
More details are yet to be published for Kim’s character sketch aside from his role as a guard who will help the heroine of the story.
Meanwhile, Seo Hyun reunites with her director in 2017’s weekender Good Thief, Bad Thief to play the lead girl. She is up to portray the character of a woman, who leaves school thereafter losing her dream.
Kim Jung Hyun, who has been proving his true worth by demonstrating realistic acting and expressive character, hopes for another memorable transformation that he can show through his new drama.
Kim said, “I am glad to be able to say hello to a good work. I want you to love me so much that I will try hard to show you fresh performances.”
He also recently starred in high-tech melancholic film, Meet the Memories.
Time is scheduled to be broadcast in July after Come and Hug Me.
