KBS official announced the casting of Song Il-gook in their historical epic "Jang Yeong-sil - Drama".

In a press release provided on the 28th, KBS said "Song Il-gook will be starring as the title character, Jang Yeong-sil, who is the protagonist of the show. The show will be our follow-up to "Jing Bi-rok" which will come to an end on August 2nd". They followed this with the comment saying "he will be appearing in both Jang Yeong-sil and 'The Return of Superman'".

They added by saying "Song Il-gook has made a strong impression with the audience performing in many of KBS' historical epics including 'Emperor of The Sea' and 'Land of wind'. We are greatly anticipating his portrayal of the character".

"Jang Yeong-sil - Drama" starring Song Il-gook is KBS' first attempt as a science drama telling the story of Jang Yeong-sil. In the age when only Confucianism was the order of the world, he was born into slavery but entered the palace and became a world class genius scientist in the 15th century.
