Kang Ha Neul confirmed on September 22 that he will take the supporting role in upcoming historical drama which Son Ye Jin is currently in talks for.
The actor was initially offered to be the male lead in Cut to the Heart; however, his agency, TH Company, mentioned in an exclusive interview with OSEN that the drama’s schedule conflicts with his.
After a thorough consideration of the drama and his schedule, Kang Ha Neul was given a role that is still significant to the story named On Hyup, the male lead’s father.
It was said that his character will make him transform as a “national general” and will be called General On Hyup.
Cut to the Heart is based on a Korean tale about Princess Pyeonggang, which Son Ye Jin gets the offer to play, who married a hunchbacked commoner named On Dal.
The Sageuk drama will be focusing on the love story of the two leads.
He achieved seven awards for the When the Camellia Blooms from 2019 to 2020, aside from the sole awards of the drama itself.
Meanwhile, Cut to the Heart is expected to be released some time in 2021.
