In 2019, more than 19 webtoons had been announced to be remade on dramas and the webtoon “Itaewon Class” (in Korean “이태원 클라쓰”) is on the list. A few days ago the news of top Hallyu star Park SeoJoon receiving the offer to be the main character of the drama has interested many.
The webtoon and drama tells the story of the CEO of a major company of Food Service and his son. The main character -Park SaeRo- lost his father because of the CEO’s son and he is alone. (According to the webtoon plot) His dream was to be a policeman but because of the situation, he decided to seek revenge for his father’s death by becoming rich. Little by little, he tried to reach his dream and he managed to open a pub. Later, he became the CEO of the company name I.C. (Itaewon Class).
The drama is to air on cable channel JTBC in the second half of the year, or in the first half of 2020 depending on the progress of production. The cast is yet to be fixed as Park SeoJoon is just considering and is not confirmed cast.
Fans of the webtoon have been waiting for the announcement of the cast and are already thinking of which actors and actresses the cast should be composed of. Here is the desired cast chosen by the Korean media Insight for the main character of “Itaewon Class”.
Let us know in the comment who do you wish to see as the main actor for this drama. Here you can find the link to the webtoon in Korean only.
1- Park SeoJoon
Park SeoJoon is one of the actors with the most resemblance to the character. The actor is currently considering the role. Park SeoJoon’s chic single eyelid eye will be perfect to act as Park SaeRo.
2- Lee JeHoon
Lee JeHoon is also a good choice for the role with his facial features and great acting skills. The actor has been acting in various projects that gave him plenty of experience. Moreover, the actor’s strong charisma and soft humility look like the character. In the movie “The Front Line” (2011), he already had shaved hairstyle -the same as Park SaeRo.
3- Yoo AhIn
Yoo AhIn is also a perfect option. In the drama “Chicago Typewriter” (2017), he had exactly the same hairstyle as Park SaeRo and it suited him perfectly. It seems that Yoo AhIn’s acting skills and style will be perfect for the character.
4- Jang KiYong
Jang KiYong is also one actor among the one talked about. He is a rising actor that has proved his acting skills. With his model features and charisma, he would suit the look of Park SaeRo.
