ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo in talks along with Seo Ye Ji and Kim Nam Gil for upcoming OCN drama “Island”
An industry representative reported on March 2 that Cha Eun Woo, the ASTRO member, will be starring in OCN’s upcoming drama “Island” (working title).
His agency Fantagio commented in response, “Cha Eun Woo is positively reviewing the offer to star in ‘Island.’”
“Island” is a fantasy exorcism drama based on a webtoon of the same name. It will tell the story of Pan, who needs a woman to end his cursed immortal life, and Won Mi Ho, the daughter of a rich family who is being targeted by goblins. The two are joined by exorcist priest John who is consumed by the guilt of having been unable to protect one girl. On the island that possesses an evil darkness despite its beauty, the three characters who seem unlikely to get along will gather their strength to protect each other.
Cha Eun Woo is in talks to play Kang Chan Hyuk, also known as John. He is a hip exorcist priest who grew up in the United States, and he has watched Korean dramas in order to not forget his mother tongue. He appears to be a bright character, but he has a dark past.
Kim Nam Gil and Seo Ye Ji are in talks to play Pan and Won Mi Ho, respectively. Im Siwan was previously considering the role of John.
“Island” will begin filming this spring and is scheduled to premiere in the second half of the year.
