Lee Joon continues to rise in the acting world, and this time he's in talks to take on a new tvN drama 'Gabdongi'!


SEE ALSO: MBLAQ talk about their comeback plans in 'Singles' interview

 


The idol-turned-actor will play the role of Ryu Tae Oh who is a barista in his twenties with both visuals and brains with his IQ of 150 and sharp memory.



'Gabdongi' takes place in the make-believe city of Iltan where the suspect of a serial murder case Gabdongi is being tracked down by detectives. The drama will be directed by 'Cheongdamdong Alice' and 'I Hear Your Voice's PD Cho Soo Won with Yoon Sang Hyun, Kim Min Jung, and Sung Dong Il also in talks to star in the drama.


The drama will premiere following 'I Need Romance 3' on March 10 at 9:40 PM KST!

[Update]  -- His agency J.Tune Camp rep responded to the reports as they told Sports Seoul on the 22nd, "[Lee Joon] has received the casting offer and is in talks but nothing has been confirmed yet... Lee Joon is not conducting individual activities at the moment as he is putting all his strength into the preparations for MBLAQ's new album set for release this March."

So it seems we'll have to wait a bit to see if they'll confirm the casting or turn it down! Cross your fingers!

Love to see Lee Joon back on the screen! His acting in Rough Play was great and really shows how hard and the determination he has for acting.

It will be fun to see Joon's higher IQ points than what we see with MBLAQ
