2PM’s Taecyeon Considering Role in Upcoming KBS Drama
It has been revealed that 2PM’s Taecyeon might be acting in KBS 2TV’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama “Assembly.”
If he confirms the role, the star will act as Kim Gyu Han who graduated with a public administration degree. Despite his efforts in applying to work at large conglomerates, he continously fails as his credentials are not very noteworthy. With a new goal of becoming a police officer, he has been studying and trying for three years. His character is faithful and tenacious. During the day he studies at the library while at night he works as a chauffeur. The actor may have have some opportunities for a shower scene as his character is described as having a muscular body due to his experience being in the Marines and having a Hapkido black belt.
“Assembly” is a drama about Jin Sang Pil (played by Jung Jae Young) who is a brave and ignorant assemblyman. His former profession was that of a welder. The drama aims to portray what Korea’s National Assembly is truly like.
There is great interest in the drama due to its famous writer Jung Hyun Min who previously wrote the 2014 drama “Jeong Do-jeon.” Jung Jae Young, Song Yoon Ah, Park Young Gyu, Kim Seo Hyung, and more will also star in the drama.
The first episode is slated to air on July 15 after “Masked Prosecutor” ends its run.
UPDATE: JYP Entertainment stated that Taecyeon is still reviewing the offer and has not officially confirmed his role yet.
