Korean boy group B1A4 member Baro has been cast in the second season of popular series “Reply 1997.”

Baro will be acting in tvN drama “Reply 1994” [translated title] alongside Korean actress Go Ara, actor Jung Woo, actor Yoo Yeon-seok and actor Kim Sung-kyun, B1A4’s agency WM Entertainment told TenAsia on Friday.

“Reply 1997,” which was on air from July to September 2012, featured teenagers living in the city of Busan and showed the fan culture that emerged in the ’90s when first-generation idol groups such as H.O.T. and Sechs Kies were popular.

However, the upcoming show will be set in Seoul and will show main characters who were born in different parts of Korea yet are living in Seoul, an official with the show’s producer CJ E&M said.

The drama, set to premiere in September, will go into shoot after wrapping up casting by early July, the official added.
