Actor Kim Young-kwang is currently reviewing an offer to headline the upcoming KBS2 fantasy rom-com series Hi? It’s Me!, as announced by his agency, WIDE-S Company.
Hi? It’s Me! (tentative title) will follow the coming-of-age journey of a 17-year-old woman who struggles to fight a miserable life with her headstrong and resilient personality.
If Kim accepts the proposal, he will be playing the role of the male protagonist Han Yoo-hyun, second son of the owner of a major confectionery conglomerate in South Korea. Due to his free-spirited and easygoing disposition, it only took one mistake before he is kicked out of the house. He is sent abroad with the condition that he is to return only when he is already able to pay for the money he has spent. He sets out to lead a life that is so far from what he is used to and meets a young woman who may very well change it forever.
Kim Young-kwang has achieved popularity for his portrayals in tvN’s mystery series Room No. 9 (2018) as well as in SBS’s romantic workplace drama The Secret Life of My Secretary (2019). In the current project, viewers can look forward to his transformation into a charming, laid-back member of a chaebol family who is willing to brave it out and stay beside his heroine if the situation calls for it.
Hi? It’s Me! is slated to be Monday-Tuesday drama and is aiming to air in the second half of the year.
