Seo Kang-joon might return to TV projects just about a year after his last starring role in When the Weather Is Fine (2020)!
On February 26, an official from the entertainment industry shared that the actor is currently considering to appear in a new drama. In response, Seo’s agency Man of Creation confirmed this, saying, “Seo Kang-joon is being courted to star in the new drama Zero.”
Zero is currently a work in progress and not much information has been revealed to the public yet, except that it is a science-fiction, chase thriller. Seo is being offered the role of the main character in the series. If he accepts, this will mark his return to the thriller genre after his role in OCN’s WATCHER in 2019.
Seo Kang-joon is a former member of the idol group 5urprise, a Korean boy band comprising of members who first debuted as actors before becoming idols. He is best known for his roles in many popular series, such as Cheese in the Trap (2016), Entourage (2016), Are You Human? (2018), and The Third Charm (2018).
The production includes screenwriter Lee Soo-yeon from the thriller crime series Stranger (seasons 1 and 2) and PD Lee Khan of The Divine Movie 2: The Wrathful.
Although the production is still discussing the network to broadcast the drama, Zero is reportedly already in talks for a collaboration with a global OTT (over-the-top) platform. The production will start filming after the casting is complete. As of writing, other casting offers and the broadcast schedule are yet to be announced by the drama officials.
