The long wait is finally over - Korean superstar Song Joong Ki will make his small screen return with revenge drama "The Youngest Son of Chaebol Family"!
Song Joong Ki Confirmed to Star in "The Youngest Son of Chaebol Family"
After Vincenzo Cassano bid farewell and began living in a small island in Malta, Song Joong Ki will take on another enthralling role with a new drama, scheduled to kick off in 2022.
On July 20, E Daily and JTBC announced that the actor Song Joong Ki is confirmed to star in the new revenge series "The Youngest Son of Chaebol Family," along with "Misaeng" actor Lee Sung Min.
Previously, the two were reported to have been offered the lead roles, and now, both have been confirmed to work closely for the project.
Fantasy-revenge drama "The Youngest Son of Chaebol Family" is based on the hit web novel of the same title. It circles around the story of a chaebol family's secretary who gets reborn as the family's youngest son.
Song Joong Ki is confirmed to play the character Yoon Hyun Woo, who dies after being wrongly accused for stealing from the Sunyang Group family that he served and had remained loyal to for years. He is reincarnated as Jin Do Joon, the youngest son of the chaebol's family and will take over the company for revenge.
Meanwhile, "The 8th Night" actor Lee Sung Min is slated play as Jin Yang Chul, the competitive and rude head of the Sunyang Group.
