Fans might see Doom at Your Service (2021) star Seo In-guk again soon, as the actor is already being courted for a new lead role in an upcoming mystery-action drama!
On July 12, it was reported that the actor will appear as the lead star of the new drama Minamdang: Case Note. A representative from his agency Story J Company quickly clarified that “Seo In-guk has received an offer for the drama Minamdang: Case Note, and he is considering it.”
Minamdang: Case Note is based on a popular web novel of the same name that was serialized on Kakao Page. It is a narrative of the mysterious events that a profiler named Han Joon and his colleagues encounter in a strange café called Minamdang. The story, written by author Jung Jae-han, won the grand prize in Kakao Page’s mobile novel contest. However, the drama adaptation will introduce new characters and events that were not presented in the original story, which will add a different kind of excitement and expectations for the viewers.
If he accepts the offer, Seo will play the lead character Han Joon, a profiler who will investigate the chain of mysterious happenings in Minamdang Café together with his colleagues. Over the years, Seo has proven his stable acting skills with his performances in many popular dramas such as Reply 1997 (2012), The Master’s Sun (2013), Squad 38 (2016), and Hundred Million Stars From the Sky (2018).
The network that will air Minamdang: Case Note is still under discussion, but the filming will reportedly start in October.
