After some casting setbacks, MBC’s upcoming series “Come Here and Hug Me” (literal translation) seems to be on the cards again with Jang Ki-yong (Go Back Couple) possibly taking the main lead role.
According to reports, the up and coming actor is positively considering to play the character of Chae Do-Jin, a graduate of Korea National Police University who is now working as a police lieutenant. The series tells the story of a man and a woman whose fates will be connected by a murder case.
The main leads of the drama were previously offered to Suzy (While You Were Sleeping) and Nam Joo-hyuk’s (Bride of Water God) but both have since declined.
Meanwhile, Jang Ki-yong will soon star alongside IU and Lee Sun-kyun on My Ahjussi starting this March.
Come Here and Hug Me is slated to air this May on MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday timeslot.
