Big Bang's T.O.P,
aka Choi Seung Hyeon
, was offered a role in the upcoming historical drama, Jang Ok Jeong Lives in Love. The proposed role will be opposite Kim Tae Hee
, who plays the lead, Jang Ok Jeong. The drama is a re-analyzation of Chosun fashion designer Jang Ok Jeong or Lady Jang Hui Bin, a famous royal concubine. The series reinterprets the historical femme fatale as a woman who influenced cosmetics and fashion design of that era.
T.O.P has been preoccupied with Big Bang but is said to be considering the offer. There is no word about the specific role he will play, but he will be a leading character. This won't be the first time the two stars have worked together—they are IRIS
alums. But it will be T.O.P's first historical drama if he accepts.
Here's to hoping he accepts the role! I think T.O.P would do great job and the story line fascinates me. Will you be tuning into this femme fatale-inspired drama? Perhaps if T.O.P was to definitely sign on?
