He joins leads Jung Woo-sung and Cha Seung-won, who play elite spies. His character is named Kim Jun-ho, a newbie to the spy agency NTS who starts out as a data analyst and dreams of becoming a spy himself. Therefore, he looks up to his confident and stylish sunbae Jung-woo (played by Jung Woo-sung) as a mentor to emulate In later episodes, he’ll get to go out into the field.
I think Choi Siwon has got the most promise; he’s not working at his full potential level yet and he could still improve his range of emotional expression, but he’s got tons of screen charisma. Plus, he’s already got one leading role in a drama under his belt, and while Oh My Lady wasn’t terribly challenging for him or for the viewer, it allowed him to show his leading-man charm. On top of that, let’s just say that compared to who was previously rumored to be taking this role, Choi Siwon is a huge step up.
The drama will begin filming any day now and aims for a broadcast later this year. In addition to Jung Woo-sung and Cha Seung-won, its other cast members are Su Ae, Kim Min-jong, and Lee Jia.
Okay, Athena, you’re officially back on my happy list.
