Kang Ha Neul will appear as another character in the new drama Pyeonggang, Cut to the Heart (literal title) instead of the male lead Ondal.
According to a media outlet, Kang Ha Neul will appear in the drama Pyeonggang, Cut to the Heart as Ondal’s father. He was originally offered to play the role of Ondal, but decided to take on another character as it became impossible to join the project as lead role due to his movie schedules.
Onhyeop, played by Kang Ha Neul, is the father of the male lead Ondal. He is one of the main characters in the early parts of the drama, and will instill an image of “the nation’s General.”
Yesterday, news of the actor declining the offer to play Ondal was released, disappointing fans who have been waiting for Son Ye Jin and Kang Ha Neul on the same project.
Pyeonggang, Cut to the Heart is a historical drama that tells the tragic love story between Princess Pyeonggang, who uses Ondal’s feelings to her advantage, and Ondal, who makes foolish sacrifices. Earlier, it was reported that Son Ye Jin and Kang Ha Neul are in talks to star as Princess Pyeonggang and Ondal.
