It's been confirmed that talented singer and actor BEAST's Lee Gikwang and actress Lee Yul Eum will be starring in the upcoming drama 'Monster'! Reports state that the two will be playing the younger counterparts of the drama's leads in the first two episodes, setting up the base for the storyline.
Many fans are expectant of the pair's appearance, curious as to how their chemistry will be like on-screen! 'Monster' (working title) follows the story of a man's revenge against society's elite class in order to create a culture based on noblesse oblige.
'Cheese in the Trap' actor Seo Kang Jun and 'She Was Pretty' lead Hwang Jung Eum are in discussion to play the main adult roles, however there seems to be a bit of complexity due to the fact that Seo Kang Jun is younger than Lee Gikwang, while Lee Gikwang will be playing the former's younger self.
'Monster' is scheduled to premiere in March after the conclusion of 'Glamorous Temptation'.
