Chun Woo-hee and Kim Mu-yeol are being courted for a project along with Seo Kang-joon!
On March 24, media reports revealed that both Chun and Kim have been selected to be part of the main cast of the new sci-fi thriller Zero. In response, Chun’s agency Namoo Actors clarified that the actress has been proposed to appear in the drama, but they have not decided on the matter yet. At the same time, Kim’s agency Prain TPC also said that the actor is still reviewing the offer to appear in the said drama.
Zero is a science-fiction and chase thriller drama to be directed by PD Lee Khan of The Divine Move 2: The Wrathful (2019) and penned by Stranger (seasons 1 and 2) screenwriter Lee Soo-yeon. It is currently a work in progress, with other production details reportedly being “prepared in top secret.” Previously, When the Weather Is Fine (2020) star Seo Kang-joon has been offered to star in the drama as the main character. Seo, who is a former member of the idol group 5urprise, is best known for his roles in dramas such as Cheese in the Trap (2016), Are You Human? (2018), and WATCHER (2019).
Chun Woo-hee last starred in the JTBC drama Be Melodramatic back in 2019. As such, her agency said that they are carefully considering and choosing a good project as her comeback drama. She also starred in dramas such as Vampire Idol (2011–2012), Prominent Woman (2014), and Argon (2017). Meanwhile, if he accepts the offer, this will mark Kim’s comeback to the small screen after three years, following his last starring role in KBS Drama Special: Forgotten Season back in 2018. Kim has also starred in Wife Returns (2009), My Beautiful Bride (2015), and Bad Guys: Vile City (2017). Recently, it was reported that the actor is in talks to join the cast of Netflix’s legal drama Juvenile Judgement with actress Kim Hye-soo.
Aside from the three actors, other casting offers and broadcast information have not been revealed to the public yet. In addition, the broadcasting network has not been decided yet, but the drama is already under discussion for a collaboration with a global OTT (over-the-top) platform.
Zero will reportedly start filming after the casting is complete.
