IU is in talks to play the lead female character Kim Bo Tong. Like her name which means 'ordinary' or 'average' in Korean, she is an ordinary girl but has a lovable charm. She also has a crush on the 'pretty man', Dok Go Ma Te (Jang Geun Suk), and will find herself in a love triangle with him as well as Lee Jang Woo's character Choi David.
IU's reps stated, "Although we received the synopsis for 'Pretty Man', we are still reviewing it. IU just released an album recently so things are hectic right now and by November, it would be the period to focus on regular, full-fledged promotions so were are not sure whether there will be enough time. We are currently discussing it."
'Pretty Man' is a story about a man with a pretty face who manages to capture the hearts of females easily, and through them, he gains not only riches and power, but also later learns what's truly important in life.
'Pretty Man' is set to premiere following 'Secrets'.
