Upcoming Korean drama Island is in talks to add rising star Cha Eun Woo to its impressive cast lineup which includes Seo Ye Jin and Kim Nam Gil.
Based on the fantasy-horror webtoon of the same name, Island is a story of three very unlikely characters teaming up together to rid evil monsters on Jeju Island. Seo Ye Ji plays a rich heiress haunted by goblins and is banished to the island by her father. Kim Nam Gil plays a monster hunter who is looking for a woman to end his cursed life.
While Cha Eun Woo is currently in discussion to join the cast, the star has been offered the role of an outgoing exorcist from the United States. The quirky character stays in touch with his Korean roots by watching Korean dramas. His character has a dark past and is burdened with the guilt of failing to protect a girl.
Island plans to have two seasons, and will begin filming this spring. Fans can expect the drama to air in the later half of this year.
