Choi Jin Hyuk may take the lead in Pride and Prejudice
Popular actor Choi Jin Hyuk is considering the lead role for new legal drama series Pride and Prejudice. If he gives the nod, it will likely to be his last project before he enters military service as an active duty soldier.
According to Choi Jin Hyuk's agency, Red Brick House, on September 16, "Choi Jin Hyuk is positively reviewing his appearance in Pride and Prejudice. He is in the final stage of mediation right now regarding his appearance. He is not confirmed."
If Choi is confirmed, Pride and Prejudice will air in October. He would play the chief prosecutor who was so brilliant that he had aced the bar exam at the age of only 21. His character is described as an investigator who does not bow to corruption or influence. Baek Jin Hee is reportedly in talks to costar. Initially, Daniel Choi and Kim Ah Joong were offered the roles.

Choi has just finished filming for Fated To Love You, which is currently showing on DramaFever.
