Actor Uhm Tae Woong has been cast to play the lead role in the upcoming KBS drama 'Knife and Flower'.
The new drama will be a suspenseful, martial-arts historical drama revolving around love, jealousy and revenge between a daughter of a murdered king and the illegitimate child of his murderer.
The drama will be directed by Kim Yong Soo, who also oversaw the production of last year's acclaimed 'Equator Man'.
Playing the role of Yun Choong, the illegitimate child, Uhm Tae Woong defies his father's orders to murder the daughter and travels between his love for his prey and his fealty towards his father.
'Knife and Flower', currently wrapping up its casting, is expected to begin broadcasting in July following the final episode of 'Mandate of Heaven'.
