Big Bang member Seungri [YG Entertainment]

Big Bang member Seungri has been cast in an upcoming drama starring actress Ku Hye-sun, his agency announced on Friday.

A press release by YG Entertainment stated that Seungri will appear in SBS’s weekend drama tentatively titled “Angel Eyes” set to premiere in April.

Just yesterday, YG had announced that their actress Ku, along with actor Lee Sang-yoon, would star in the series revolving around the love story of a man and woman who were each other’s first loves 12 years ago.

In the show, Seungri is set to play a Korean-American who returns to Korea to become an emergency rescue worker and also falls in love at first sight with a woman working at a flower shop.

This will not be the 23-year-old idol star’s first time acting, having made a few appearances in films and dramas since 2009.

The drama itself will be helmed by Park Shin-woo who co-produced SBS’s hit drama “Queen of Ambition” and written by Yoon Ji-ryun of KBS’s smash hit “Boys Over Flowers,” which also placed Ku to stardom in 2009.
