According to an exclusive report on February 7, ASTRO‘s Cha Eun Woo has been cast as the male lead of a new MBC historical romance series!
The upcoming MBC drama series ‘Rookie Officer Goo Hae Ryung‘ tells the story of early 19th century Joseon, a time when women who chose to learn how to read and write were frowned upon. Cha Eun Woo will reportedly play the role of a lonely prince named Lee Rim, whose personal relationship status is single-since-birth, but who lives a double life as a secretive, hit romance novel writer.
Previously, actress Shin Se Kyung was confirmed for the female lead role of Goo Hae Ryung – a new recruit among the palace officers who begins stalking prince Lee Rim for unknown reasons.
If true, this will mark Cha Eun Woo’s first ever lead role in a drama aired on a public broadcasting station. Meanwhile, ‘Rookie Officer Goo Hae Ryung’ is expected to air some time this July.
