BEAST member Lee Gi-kwang and B1A4 member Baro have been cast in an upcoming SBS drama.
According to BEAST’s agency Cube Entertainment on Friday, Lee will play a rock band leader/idol star in the series tentatively named “God’s Gift.”
This will not be his first time acting – he made his acting debut through MBC’s hit sitcom “High Kick” in 2009 and has appeared in a couple of dramas since.
In the meantime, an official with “God’s Gift” told TenAsia over the phone that Baro will appear in the upcoming Monday-Tuesday primetime series as well.
The official then explained, “He got cast in the show due to the stable acting he displayed in ‘Reply 1994.’ We held a script reading session yesterday and everybody was happy with his acting.”
Baro undertook acting for the first time in “Reply 1994,” a hit series which aired on cable channel tvN for two months at the end of last year, but he received much praise for his performance as one of the main characters.
“God’s Gift” starring top Korean actors Jo Seung-woo and Lee Bo-young, is set to premiere after current series “One Warm Word” ends its run in February.
The upcoming show will be about a mother, who has lost her child, protecting that child after going back two weeks in time.
Girl group Secret member Han Sun-hwa is also said to be in talks to appear in the show.
