Jang Ki-yong considers lead role for new MBC series

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.
