There have been several reports stating that KBS’s upcoming drama “Jeon Woo Chi” is trying to cast After School’s UEE and 2PM’s Taecyeon as its leads. One local media reported that After School’s UEE and 2PM’s Taecyeon were strong candidates for the drama. Reportedly, an insider revealed, “It’s almost confirmed that Uee and Ok Taecyeon will be starring in ‘Jeon Woo Chi.’ All they have to do is sign the contract.”
A representative of Pledis Entertainment stated, “It’s true that Uee was offered the role, but we had yet to make a decision. We’re still considering the project.”
JYP Entertainment also announced, “The reports are completely wrong. Nothing has been decided, and it’s difficult fitting in an acting job to his schedule right now.”
“Jeon Woo Chi” is tells the story of Jeon Woo Chi, who swallows a Gumiho’s bead, giving him Taoist magic. He uses his powers to help rescue the people from feminine and tyrannical government, becoming a legendary hero in Joseon. It will replace Song Joong Ki and Moon Chae Won’s “Nice Guy” on KBS this November.
