Jang Geun Suk promised he would return to K-dramas this year, and it looks like his promise may become a reality soon! The actor is currently considering an offer to star in Daebak, an upcoming SBS historical series about gambling. Im Ji Yeon and Yeo Jin Goo are also considering roles.
News reports describe Daebak as a Joseon Era version of the classic K-drama All In, starring Lee Byung Hyun and Song Hye Gyo. If Jang Geun Suk accepts, he will play a prince forced to live as a commoner. He becomes Joseon's best card shark and uses his gambling skills to challenge his rival, the king.
Yeo Jin Goo is up to play a fictionalized young version of King Yeongjo. As the villain of the series, he is cunning and competitive. Im Ji Yeon is considering a role as a woman determined to kill the king and exact revenge for a longstanding grudge against the royal family.
