"Choi Byung Chan will join the cast of KBS' new drama 'Affection'," his agency Play M Entertainment said on March 25.
Choi Byung Chan will play the role of Kim Ga On, a guard warrior who silently stands by the Crown Prince Lee Hwi (played by Park Eun Bin). The new role is a 180-degree transformation from his previous work with a veiled narrative and charm.
'Affection' is a royal romance drama that depicts the story of a child who was abandoned just because she was a girl, becoming a crown prince by wearing a man's costume. Producer Song Hyun Wook, who helmed the dramas 'Beauty Inside' and 'Another Miss Oh', will direct the drama, based on a webtoon of the same name by Lee So Young, and Han Hee Jung, who wrote the drama 'Clean with Passion for Now' will pen it.
Choi Byung Chan, who will start his full-fledged acting career with ‘Affection’, debuted as an actor in JTBC's 'Live On' last year. In 'Live On', Choi Byung Chan received positive reviews for playing Kim Yoo Shin, a high school student who is free-spirited and full of talks. He will then challenge his first terrestrial drama with 'Affection' also his first historical drama. Expectations are high for the singer-actor, who will capture viewers with his unique charm.
Meanwhile, in 'Affection,' actress Park Eun Bin plays the role of Crown Prince Lee Hwi and SF9 Rowoon will play Jeong Ji Woon, the teacher of Crown Prince Lee Hwi, who carries a secret. Young stars such as Park Eun Bin, Rowoon, Bae Yoon Kyung, and Nam Yoon Soo are known to appear, and Choi Byung Chan's joining is expected to bring another fresh visual.
The filming will begin soon with the aim of broadcasting in the second half of this year.
