SBS announced that the much-awaited drama "Yawang" featuring actors kwon Sang-woo and Soo-ae will begin airing in January.
A spokesperson for the drama said yesterday the program has at last been allocated time slots on Monday and Tuesday nights.
Initially, filming was scheduled for August, but casting is still underway . Everything is set to be in order by November, and filming will commence then.
The announcement comes nearly three months after Kwon and Soo signed contracts.
Based on the work by cartoonist Park In-kwon, "Yawang" tells the tale of a woman born into poverty who will let nothing stand in her way as she tries to become the first lady. Soo-ae will play the ambitious female character, while Kwon will be in the role of a hopeless romantic in love with the female protagonist.
Kwon's agency said it was an easy decision for the star, who was in the TV adaptation of "Daemul - Big Thing" also by Park. "I want to show another side of myself that is a little different from the role in 'Daemul - Big Thing'" said Kwon.
