Nam Yoon Soo is in talks to lead SBS’ new Monday-Tuesday drama Today’s Webtoon (literal title).

On February 8th, an industry insider revealed, “Nam Yoon Soo has been appointed as the male lead in Today’s Webtoon slated to air in the second half of 2022.”

Today’s Webtoon is the Korean remake of the popular Japanese drama, Sleepeeer Hit!. It is about the story of a former female judo athlete who joins the webtoon editorial department as a new employee and the struggles she goes through while becoming a true webtoon editor.

Nam Yoon Soo found his way into stardom after playing the second lead in KBS 2TV’s The King’s Affection. Should he accept the role in Today’s Webtoon, he will be playing a sales team employee who later becomes true friends with Kim Se Jeong (On Ma Eum).

Previously, Na In Woo had been offered to play the role in the drama. However, he turned down the offer due to conflicts in his schedule.

Today’s Webtoon is slated to premiere in July.
