Former MYTEEN rapper Lee Tae-vin cast in SBS’s ‘Penthouse’

Idol-turned-actor Lee Tae-vin will be appearing in SBS’s upcoming drama Penthouse.

On September 11, Lee’s agency Crebig Entertainment announced, “Lee Tae-vin was cast in SBS’s new Monday-Tuesday drama Penthouse.”

Penthouse is set inside a 100-floor luxury penthouse and follows three power-hungry women who will do anything in the name of their ambitions in life. The production recently announced its lead cast lineup, featuring stars Lee Ji-ah (The Ghost Detective), Kim So-yeon (Mother of Mine), and Eugene (All About My Home).

In the series, Lee Tae-vin will be playing the role of Lee Min-hyuk, a student who majors in music at Cheong-A High School and the eldest son of conglomerates Lee Kyu-jin (played by Bong Tae-gyu, Doctor Detective) and Go Sang-ah (played by Yoon Joo-hee, I Wanna Hear Your Song).

Lee left the boy band MYTEEN in December 2018. He has previously appeared in two series. The most recent is his guest role in the 2020 crime fantasy 365: Repeat The Year, where he caught the viewers’ attention. Now, expectations are set on the kind of performance he will give on this new project.

“I’m going to give my best performance, so please look forward to it,” the actor shared.

Penthouse is set to take over the time slot currently occupied by Do You Like Brahms?. The series is a reunion project of director Joo Dong-min and screenwriter Kim Sun-ok, who previously worked together in the 2018 series The Last Empress. It is slated to premiere in the second half of 2020.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
