According to a recent report, actor Jung Soon-won will take on the role of Chae Jeong-man in the upcoming television drama "The Kidnapping Day" on ENA. The mystery thriller stars Yoon Kye-sang as a kidnapper who forms an unlikely alliance with the girl he is kidnapping, who is played by Yu Na. The news follows Jung Soon-won's appearance on "Trolley" in one of his highest profile roles to date as an employee in an important political office.

He described the original novel on which "The Kidnapping Day" is based as having an exciting story that lingers in the heart.

Jung Soon-won had many other credits throughout 2022, many of them also in crime stories. These include "Through the Darkness" and "The Good Detective - Season 2" in addition to "Yumi's Cells - Season 2" and "Under the Queen's Umbrella" which do not fit that genre description. "The Kidnapping Day" is expected to begin airing on ENA later this year.
