On June 18, an industry source revealed that Byun Yo Han would star in the drama Snow White Must Die (literal title), based on Nele Neuhaus’s German mystery novel of the same name.
According to the report, Saram Entertainment stated, “He received an offer to star in the series and is contemplating it.”
The original novel Snow White Must Die is the best-seller that follows two detectives investigating an odd incident in a village. The events and characters in the book will be reinterpreted in the series to match Korean sentiments, and it will depict the dark side of human nature.
Byun Yo Han has been offered the role of Go Jung Woo. In the series, young Go Jung Woo was bright enough to get into medical school at an early age. He went on a trip after taking SAT, but he has become a murderer ever since. After being released from prison, he returns to his hometown and discovers what happened 11 years ago. If Byun Yo Han agrees to star in the series, it will be his first show since Mr. Sunshine in 2018.
Hidden Sequence will produce Snow White Must Die, and the cast list is still being finalized.
