Actor Lee Do Hyun might cast as lead role in upcoming drama Melancholia.
On 5th April, one industry representative said Lee Do Hyun will be joining Im Soo Jung for a drama titled “Melancholia.” A source from his agency Yue Hua Entertainment stated, “Lee Do Hyun received an offer to star in ‘Melancholia’ and is reviewing it.”
“Melancholia” will tell the story of a terrible scandal that sweeps over a prestigious private high school in Gangnam. The scandal involves a sexual relationship between students and teachers, as well as the corruption that follows.
Previously it was revealed that Im Soo Jung is in discussion to play the main character in the drama.
If Lee Do Hyun chooses to accept the offer, he will play Baek Seung Yoo. He is a guy of few words who is slow to respond and is blasé about everything. He is a voluntary outsider who prefers to take pictures quietly with DSLR cameras instead of cell phone cameras. In addition, he appeared on a quiz program at the age of five and surprised the world by solving math problems that even students at KAIST and Pohang University of Science and Technology could not solve. He also entered MIT at the age of 10 but dropped out at the age of 12.
Lee Do Hyun is currently filming “Youth of May” that will get air in May 2021.
