It looks like actor Lee Hyun-wook is in for another exciting project, having just made official his participation in Netflix’s upcoming Korean original drama Bride of Black.
Lee’s agency Management Air revealed, “It is correct that Lee Hyun-wook is set to appear in Bride of Black.”
Bride of Black revolves around a remarriage information company that caters to the upper-class society. Earlier, it was reported that multi-awarded actress Kim Hee-sun (Alice) received an offer to portray the female protagonist Seo Hye-seung. Hye-seung is a typical wealthy homemaker in Gangnam who is entering the remarriage market following the death of her husband. Lee Hyun-wook will reportedly suit up as the male lead and act opposite Seo, should the actress decide to join the project.
Lee Hyun-wook began his acting profession in 2000 by playing roles in short films. This went on for over ten years before he got the opportunity to make his television debut in the action-thriller series Three Days (2014). After succeeding periods of essaying supporting roles in Mrs. Cop 2 (2016) and Strangers From Hell (2019), as well as doing cameos in Pegasus Market (2019) and The Good Detective (2020), Lee landed his first main role in the 2020 military thriller Search. Now, it appears like the 35-year-old artist is on the road to reaching more career milestones, following his main cast participation in the recently concluded romantic drama She Would Never Know (2021) and the ongoing tvN series Mine.
Penned by screenwriter Lee Geun-young of I Am the Mother Too (2018), Bride of Black is scheduled to air in 2022.
