K-pop boy band Super Junior's Donghae has been earmarked to play the male lead in Channel A's upcoming romantic comedy.
Hallyu star Donghae and actress Yoon Sung-a have been cast to play main characters in "Ms. Panda and Mr. Hedgehog"(translated title), which is likely to hit the airwaves this Summer, Channel A's officials announced through a press release Tuesday.
As the show's title infers, the "Mr. Simple" star will play Mr. Hedgehog who has a unique hairstyle that looks like a hedgehog with a stoic personality.
His acting partner, Yoon, will play Ms. Panda who has a peaceful personality but always quarrel with Donghae's character, and the pair develops into a romantic relationship.
Donghae, who made his debut as a member of the 13-member group Super Junior in 2005, has already began building acting experiences through Taiwanese drama "Skip Beat!" with the group's member Siwon in December last year.
