On February 7, All KPop reported that ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo will star as the male lead of a new MBC historical romance series that is expected to be released in July this year.
The upcoming MBC drama series ‘Rookie Officer Goo Hae Ryung’ will revolve around the story of early 19th century Joseon, a time when women who chose to learn how to read and write were frowned upon. According to an exclusive report received by All KPop, Cha Eun Woo is set to play the role of a lonely prince named Lee Rim, whose personal relationship status is single-since-birth, but who lives a double life as a secretive, hit romance novel writer.
It has been reported before that actress Shin Se Kyung was confirmed for the female lead role of Goo Hae Ryung. She will play the role of a new recruit among the palace officers who begins stalking prince Lee Rim for unknown reasons.
Should this project materialize, this will be Cha Eun Woo’s first ever lead role in a drama aired on a public broadcasting station. Also referred to as an acting-idol, Cha Eun Woo started acting in a small role in a movie in 2014. He mainly did web dramas prior to bagging the main character of the popular drama “My ID Is Gangnam Beauty“ last year.
