Kang Ha-neul, Hyeri likely to costar in upcoming series ’Picnic‘
Angela Jung, July 25, 2016, 9:35 a.m.
Actor Kang Ha-neul and singer-actress Hyeri have reportedly been offered lead roles in MBC‘s upcoming drama “Picnic.” “It is almost certain that (the two) will act in the series,” a source familiar with the matter was quoted as saying in local news outlet Sports Daily’s report on Monday.
The agencies of Kang and Hyeri, however, told Sports Daily nothing has yet to be confirmed. Kang is known to have rejected an offer for the role once months ago. Girls’ Generation member Yuri and EXO‘s Chanyeol have been cast as supporting roles.
“Picnic” will center around an unanticipated journey to an island which is cutoff from civilization.
The series, which was initially planned to air in the second half of 2016, was postponed until the first half of 2017 and will be produced by S.M. Entertainment’s subsidiary S.M. C&C.
