Joo Sang-wook courted for fantasy drama by ‘Hotel del Luna’ writers

Joo Sang-wook might return to the small screen soon!

Joo’s agency HB Entertainment confirmed reports that the actor had been offered the upcoming tvN drama Return (working title) and is positively reviewing the script.

Lee Jae-wook (Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol), Park Hye-eun (The School Nurse Files), Hwang Min-hyun (Live On), and Oh My Girl’s Arin (The World of My 17) were previously reported to be considering the show. 

Return is the newest project by celebrated screenwriting team consisting of Hong Jung-eun and Hong Mi-ran, more popularly known as the Hong sisters. They are credited with some of the biggest hits on South Korean television—My Girlfriend Is a Nine-tailed Fox (2010), The Greatest Love (2011), Master’s Sun (2013), and Hotel del Luna (2019).

Like Hong sisters’ previous dramas, Return, too, is a fantasy story revolving around young magicians that deal with heavenly spirits. 

Joo Sang-wook is best known for starring in Giant (2010), Good Doctor (2013), Birth of a Beauty (2014–2015), Glamorous Temptation (2015–2016), and Grand Prince (2018). He was last seen in Channel A’s romantic comedy Touch (2020) opposite Kim Bo-ra.

Thrillers like Secret Forest and rom-coms with sprinklings of feminism à la Because This Life Is My First hold a special place in her heart. She can be reached at [email protected]
