According to OSEN’s coverage on the afternoon of the 15th, So Ji Sub recently received a script for Netflix’s Model Family and discussed his appearance on the show. However, this was ultimately canceled.

Model Family depicts the story of an ordinary family which is on the verge of collapse due to bankruptcy and discord, and the events which arise as a drug gang becomes involved. The director of Love Alarm 2, Kim Jin Woo, is in charge of the new series.

Whilst So Ji Sub was offered to play the character of Ma Kwang Chul, the second-in-command of a drug organization, he decided not to appear due to his other various schedules. Currently, the show is in talks with Jung Woo and Yoon Jin Seo as they have also been offered roles.

Currently, So Ji Sub has finished filming for Choi Dong Hoon’s new film Alien (working title) and is said to be looking for a new film to work on next. He is also set to release his first thriller film, Confession, where he worked with Kim Yun Jin.

  • As a long time fan… I didn’t feel it was role compatible with him. I mean can pull of any role.. but this once just felt kinda meh… Want to see him with something more spectacular in terms of character choices.
