Lee David joins Park Seo-joon in upcoming webtoon-based drama ‘Itaewon Class’

On October 15, Lee David has been confirmed to join the cast of the upcoming JTBC drama Itaewon Class. Lee recently made headlines because of his impactful performance as the serial killer-turned-malevolent spirit Seol Ji-won in blockbuster drama Hotel Del Luna.

Itaewon Class, adapted from a webtoon of the same name, follows Park Sae-roy (Park Seo-joon) as he overcomes various challenges after the death of his father and opens a restaurant in Itaewon, a popular tourist destination in Seoul. Meanwhile, Lee David will play a fund manager named Ho-jin, Park Sae-roy’s classmate who ends up working at his restaurant. Sae-roy and Ho-jin’s bromance is being touted as one of the highlights of the show.

Itaewon Class is already being hotly anticipated as it will mark Park Seo-joon’s (What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim) return to the small screen after one year. Additionally, Kim Da-mi (best known for starring in the movie The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion), Kim Dong-hee (SKY Castle), Yoo Jae-myung (My Fellow Citizens), and Kwon Na-ra (Doctor Prisoner) will be appearing in the series.

Directed by the Love In The Moonlight PD Kim Sung-yoon, Itaewon Class is expected to premiere in February 2020.
