NU’EST’s Hwang Minhyun will continue his acting career with Hong Sisters.
According to SPOTVNEWs, Hwang was cast in tvN’s new series Return (literal title), penned by the famous Hong Sisters.
Hong Sisters (Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran) are among Korea’s best romance writers. So far, they have created numerous hit TV series, such as You’re Beautiful, My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox, The Greatest Love, Master’s Sun, A Korean Odyssey, and Hotel Del Luna. Return will be the sisters’ comeback project in about two years since Hotel Del Luna.
This new historical fantasy romance will center around young sorcerers who read the universe and its energy.
Last year, Hwang Minhyun made his grand acting debut with Live On, receiving recognition for his stable performance. The artist will be showing a whole new side of him through Return, establishing himself as the lead actor.
Meanwhile, NU’EST made their comeback with Romanticize on the 19th. After successfully wrapping up his NU’EST promotions, he will prepare for his return as an actor.
Return was programmed as tvN’s series to premiere in the latter half of this year. Let’s Eat, Because This Is My First Life, and What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim director Park Jun Hwa was tapped as the main producer. Lee Jae Wook and Park Hye Eun are also in talks to star in the series.
