BTOB’s Sungjae and actor Nam Joo Hyuk confirmed as male leads for “Who Are You —School 2015”
BTOB‘s youngest member Sungjae and actor Nam Joo Hyuk have been named as the two main male leads for the upcoming KBS 2TV drama Who Are You —School 2015, possibly forming a love triangle with actress Kim So Hyun.
Kim So Hyun was previously reported to be taking on double roles in the drama, while CNBLUE‘s Minhyuk declined the offer for being the male lead.
While other Korean news sites are reporting that the male idol is still in talks for the role, Newsen has reported that he has already participated in a script reading session with confirmed cast members Kim So Hyun and Nam Joo Hyuk.
With these three as the main drama leads, the average age of the cast has been significantly reduced, as the actress Kim So Hyun is only 17 years old this year, while Sungjae and Nam Joo Hyuk are 21 and 22 respectively.
A related official of the drama revealed, “BTOB’s Sungjae is in talks of appearing in Who Are You —School 2015. There is no confirmation for his casting yet, but he is being considered currently.”
If Sungjae were to take on the role, he would be likely to play a rebellious character as a chairman’s son.
Sungjae was in fact named as a rising acting-dol, with his limited experience but impressive acting skills in tvN dramas Reply 1994 and Plus Nine Boys.
Who Are You —School 2015 is expected to air its first episode on April 27th, after the completion of Blood.
