CASTING NEWS: Shin Ha Kyun will play the lead in Mr. Baek
In the drama, Shin Ha Kyun will play Baek Ho, a selfish hotel owner in his 70s who suddenly ages in reverse back to his 30s. He takes a low-level job at his own hotel.
Shin Ha Kyun is best known for his roles in the dramas All About My Romance and Brain, as well as the film Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance. Given the diversity of the roles he has played, it sounds like he will be able to handle the transformation from the greedy 70-year-old to the 30-year-old really well.
