Jang Hyuk Adds Veteran Gravitas to Sageuk Drama My Country with Young Leads Yang Se Jong, Seolhyun, and Woo Do Hwan


Being a veteran K-actor or actress has the additional perk of picking even supporting roles that can end up more critical to the narrative. One needn’t always be the lead to scene steal and my gut tells me Jang Hyuk is going to hold down the fort in upcoming sageuk My Country. He’s joining the cast of young leads Yang Se Jong, Seolhyun, and Woo Do Hwan, and it will be his first sageuk in four years since The Merchant: Gaekju 2015. The drama will air on jTBC in the second half of the year, chronicling the friendship and rivalry of the two male leads during a turbulent time in Goryeo, and their relationship with the female lead who they both love.
