Lee Min Ho is considering his Korean drama comeback, in a project that is being crafted by "My Love from the Star" and "Producer," screenwriter, Park Ji Eun.
On January 21, Starhaus Entertainment confirmed the potential casting, in an exclusive report that was released by the domestic publication, Donga.
"Lee Min Ho is positively [considering] joining Park Ji Eun and producer Ji Hyuk," said a representative for Starhaus, in an official statement.
The project is being helmed by producer-director Ji Hyuk, who previously worked with Lee on the action drama, "City Hunter." Ji is also credited with the direction of the supernatural hit, "Master's Sun" and the Lee Jong Suk medical drama, "Doctor Stranger."
Park Ji Eun joined Ji Hyuk during a KOCCA-sponsored panel at KCON 2015 in Los Angeles. During the discussion, they weighed in on their casting process and their upcoming projects.
"I create characters with specific actors and actresses, in mind," said Park, when discussing her work with Kim Soo Hyun on 'My Love from the Star' and 'Producer.'
The potential casting of Lee Min Ho has already generated buzz, as it would be his first dramatic television role since the 2013 teen series, "The Heirs."
In 2015, he successfully transitioned to the silver screen with the action noir, "Gangnam 1970" or project also recognized by the title, "Gangnam Blues." He followed the popular role with the upcoming Korean-Chinese blockbuster, "Bounty Hunters."
The report follows his recent Seoul fan event titled Minoz Mansion, which was attended by an audience of 4,000 supporters from China, Japan, Korea, and other nations.
In addition to his screen roles, his profile increased in 2015 through his successful appearance as a post-MERS spokesmodel for the Korea Tourism Organization. He is also the honorary ambassador for the 2018 Olympics.
Speculation continues to shroud the next project for the 29-year-old actor, who is expected to enlist in the military in 2016.
