Korean actor Zo In-sung has confirmed his lead role in a new TV series by acclaimed scriptwriter Noh Hee-kyong, breaking out from his eight-year-long hiatus in the small screen.
The new drama’s promoter Shall We Talk said in a press release Friday that Zo has made his final decision to star in Noh’s upcoming project tentatively titled “That Winter, The Wind Blows."
“We recently finalized inking the deal with Zo. The drama will be a masterpiece as the country’s best producers and actor have teamed up for the project,” an official from the producing company said in the statement.
“Zo has already begun analyzing his character, which proves his firm determination to show better performances since it has been a long time he last acted on the screen,” the official added.
Korean actress Song Hye-kyo is said to be eyeing on the project opposite to Zo, but whether she has made the final decision has not announced yet.
The serious melodrama will tell a true love story between a top gambler [played by Zo], who lives a meaningless life after being abandoned by his parents at an early age. Adding to that, he breaks up with his first love, who desperately protects herself from getting hurt by the loss of her father and suffers from vision impairment.
Helmed by director and writer duo Kim Kyu-tae and Noh Hee-kyong of JTBC’s hit series "Padam Padam" (2011-2012), the series is in the pre-production stage, aiming to air early next year.
