Woo Do Hwan Cast as Second Male Lead in Kim Eun Sook Drama The King: Eternal Sovereign


I feel a sense of deja vu when I heard this casting news. Rising male lead Woo Do Hwan has been offered and accepted the second male lead role in screenwriter Kim Eun Sook‘s next drama the parallel worlds fantasy romance The King: Eternal Sovereign. The leads will be Lee Min Ho and Kim Go Eun, and Woo Do Hwan’s casting will be as Lee Min Ho’s King character body guard in one world and a police officer in the other world. The deja vu in casting Woo Do Hwan comes from him totally reminding me of Kim Woo Bin v.2 and Kim Woo Bin got his huge career boost as the second male lead in Kim Eun Sook’s Heirs opposite Lee Min Ho. I think this casting is great for Woo Do Hwan’s career but worry that he’s going to steal Lee Min Ho’s thunder the way Kim Woo Bin did. But then again, I liked both male leads well enough in different ways in Heirs so for me I’ll probably have enough love to go around this time as well.
