Jung Il Woo is in talks to appear in the new drama Bossam – Stealing Fate (literal translation).
An official from Jung Il Woo’s agency said, “Jung Il Woo was offered a role in new drama ‘Bossam – Stealing Fate,’ and is positively considering it.”
Bossam – Stealing Fate tells the story of a person who accidentally kidnaps a princess. The role Jung Il Woo has been offered in Ba Woo, a low-level gangster who is an expert in gambling, stealing, fighting, and kidnapping. He engages in the practice of connecting widows, who had no hopes of getting remarried, with new husbands. When he was young, his whole family was wiped out due to conspiracy, but luckily he escaped, hid his identity, and lived a life of a low-level gangster.
Jung Il Woo has always shown great performances in historical dramas, including The Return of Iljimae, Moon Embracing the Sun, and Night Watchman’s Journal.
Attention is focusing on whether Jung Il Woo, who is currently starring in JTBC’s Sweet Munchies, will make his comeback to the historical genre.
