Im Siwan, Seo Kang Joon, Jo Jin Woong, and Lee Kwang Soo consider Entourage K-drama remake
There's a remake of the hit HBO series Entourage in the works at tvN, and now casting offers are out to Seo Kang Joon, Im Siwan, Lee Kwang Soo, and Jo Jin Woong to form the core group at the center of the series.
All of the actors are considering their roles at this stage. If they accept, Seo Kang Joon would go from his current bad boy role in Cheese in the Trap to playing top star Cha Young Bin, the K-drama equivalent of Adrian Grenier's Vincent Chase. Im Siwan is up to play the Eric Murphy character, Young Bin's best friend and manager.
Jo Jin Woong, who is absolutely rocking his current role as Lee Jae Han in Signal, would play talent agent Kim Eun Kap, or Jeremy Piven's Ari Gold role from the original. Lee Kwang Soo would round out the group as the Johnny Drama character. Instead of being the top star's half-brother like in the HBO series, this character will be his cousin who is struggling to find work as an actor. So far, there's no word on if there's a Turtle character or, if there is, who would take that role.

The K-drama version of Entourage will likely air on tvN in June.
