VIXX‘s Hongbin has been cast as the male lead in KBS2TV’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “Moorim School,” scheduled to premiere in January 2016.
According to MBN Star, actress Seo Ye Ji is the most likely candidate to play the female lead, but she has yet to accept the casting offer for the role of Shim Soon Duk.
Hongbin will be playing a character named Wang Chi Ang. The role was previously offered to BTOB‘s Yook Sungjae and Lee Hyun Woo, but it appears the negotiations ultimately fell through.
Described as an ‘action romance’ drama, “Moorim School” goes beyond the conventional grades and career paths to discuss deeper school-related themes such as faith, honesty, communication, and relationships.
