In this series, Lee Do Hyun takes on the role of Jang Gun Woo, one of the twelve lives Choi Yi Jae (Seo In Guk) has to live out.
Previously, Lee Do Hyun had worked with Ha Byung Hoon in 18 Again and chose Death’s Game as his last filming project before his military enlistment. Director Ha revealed that he thought of Jang Gun Woo as Lee Do Hyun from the start of the scriptwriting process, heightening expectations for their synergy.
Jang Gun Woo is a model who captivates people with his handsome looks. He leads a smooth life, earning a lot of money solely because of his good looks, without any special talent or specific goals. Photos released capture Jang Gun Woo exuding an exceptional presence, regardless of time and place.
The production team expressed deep gratitude to the actor for committing to the project despite his upcoming military enlistment. They mentioned, “We believe the viewers will quickly understand why the character Jang Gun Woo was specifically written for Lee Do Hyun. You can look forward to his performance in the drama.”
Meanwhile, Death’s Game revolves around Choi Yi Jae, who, moments before falling into hell, is given the grim task to live out 12 deaths and lifetimes by Death (Park So Dam). The series is set to premiere on TVING on the 15th and will be available to viewers in over 240 countries worldwide through Prime Video.
