Pop Music’s CEO Kim Jin Seok shared, “We concluded the deal for publication rights with Studio Dragon, and we plan to start choosing the main staff and begin casting. We will do our best to create a good project. In particular, since it’s a project in which the fame of the source IP (intellectual property) is very large, we’ve already received inquiries from many actors and foreign production companies.”

Born on September 25, 1982, Hyun Bin (Kim Tae-pyung) is a South Korean actor.

Hyun Bin first gained wide recognition for his role in the 2005 romantic comedy television drama My Name Is Kim Sam-soon.
