Actor Yeon Woo-jin (Judge vs. Judge) is currently in talk to lead the upcoming OCN drama Priest, which would delve into the world of exorcism.
On July 28, his agency Jump Entertainment announced that he is positively reviewing the casting offer for the drama.
Priest will be under the helm of Kim Jong-hyun who previously worked on the film Take Off 2. Yeon Woo-jin is courted to play the doctor-turned-exorcist Oh Soo-min.
Lee Je-hoon (Tomorrow With You) was first offered the lead male role, but declined.
Priest looks to air on OCN in the last quarter of 2018.
