MBC’s Oh! Master, an upcoming romantic-comedy series starring Lee Min-ki and Nana, has welcomed musician-actor Kang Min-hyuk to its cast.
Oh! Master will tell the push-and-pull relationship between Han Bi-soo (Lee Min-ki, The Lies Within), a critically-acclaimed screenwriter for thriller dramas, and Oh Joo-in (Nana, Memorials), a famous actress nicknamed the “Rom-Com Queen.” While Bi-soo is an eligible bachelor and a really good catch, he remains single because he chooses not to date anybody. In a similar yet completely different circumstance, Joo-in is loved for her onscreen roles as a leading lady, but she somehow finds herself unable to date anyone. Their situations are bound to change, however, when they suddenly had to live together in a single house.
Kang Min-hyuk has signed up for the role of Yoo Jin, a grandson of the family that runs South Korea’s leading cosmetics company. After finishing his education in France, he came back to work as a director for a popular cosmetics brand, thereby becoming the ultimate embodiment of a trendy man.
Kang started making a name in the entertainment industry as the drummer of CNBLUE, a widely known pop-rock band formed in 2009. He then ventured into television acting with notable support roles in the series It’s Okay, Daddy’s Girl (2010), Heartstrings (2011), and My Husband Got a Family (2012). In 2013, Kang was propelled to international stardom for his adorable role opposite Krystal Jung (Search) in the hit drama The Heirs (2013). Years after, he was cast as a main actor in Entertainer (2016) before landing his first lead role in the medical-themed drama Hospital Ship (2017). In July of 2018, he enlisted in the military and was discharged two years later. While still fresh off serving the force, Kang immediately received an offer to star in Kakao M’s webtoon-based original series How To Be Thirty, which he already accepted and confirmed.
On his role in the new MBC drama, Kang Min-hyuk is expected to depict the character perfectly with his acting versatility and stunning visuals. The star himself remarked, “I am looking forward to the charming story that will unfold in Oh! Master.”
Oh! Master will be helmed by director Hyun Sol-ip of You Drive Me Crazy! (2018) and penned by screenwriter Jo Jin-kuk of Love Is Annoying, but I Hate Being Lonely (2020). The drama is slated to air in 2021.
