On February 21, Sidus HQ Entertainment revealed that Jang Hyuk has confirmed his appearance in JTBC’s new historical drama “My Country” (literal title). The drama takes place between the end of the Goryeo Dynasty and the beginning of the Joseon Dynasty.

Previously, it was confirmed that Yang Se Jong, Woo Do Hwan, and Seolhyun will also star in the drama.

Jang Hyuk will be taking on the role of Lee Bang Won, the prince who helped his father overthrow the Goryeo dynasty to begin the Joseon dynasty. While he was expected to become the successor to the throne for his contribution to the founding of Joseon, his father shows favor to his half-brother instead. Thus, Lee Bang Won begins his lonely journey to become the crowned prince.

Jang Hyuk responded to the casting news, “The overall development of the drama fascinated me. The story is also interesting. This is my second time taking on the role of Lee Bang Won after the 2015 film “The Age of Innocence.” This time, I would like to portray a different side of the antagonist.”

“My Country” is scheduled to premiere in the second half of this year.
