Yoo Ah In tends to be the center of a lot of gossip as he eyes new roles, both in television and film. We say gossip because the story has yet to be confirmed, but we’re just so giddy by the mere thought that we have to at least spread the hope. The rumors are still circulating that Ah In will assume the lead role in Kim Tae Hee’s upcoming drama, Jang Ok Jung, and while yes, that’s great, we want that, there’s even more potential casting news to reveal! There have been whispers that Ah In will be playing a role in the upcoming sequel to Friend, titled—wait for it—Friend 2. The original film, directed by Kwak Kyung Taek and starring Jang Dong Gun, spawned a K-drama spin-off, so this would be a continuation of the popular franchise, and Ah In’s first appearance in it. We’ve said it once and we’ll say it again: revenge thrillers are hot hot hot right now.
How badly are you hoping the rumors are true?
