Lee Jun-hyuk cast in Uhm Tae-woong TV series.



Lee Jun-hyuk will be making his way back to the small screen, playing the childhood friend of Uhm Tae-woong in an upcoming KBS TV series.

A press release by Wellmade STARM said that Lee will take on the adult role of Lee Jang-il, with the younger version played by ZE:A member Siwan, in KBS' Wednesday and Thursday drama "Man of the Equator" (translated title) set to air on March 14.

In "Man," Lee, born into a poor family, grows up to become a star inspector and betrays his childhood friend (Uhm) for his own honor and success.

The series is scripted by famed scenarist Kim In-young and will focus on people’s desire, love and forgiveness.

"This will be the second time I play an inspector after 'City Hunter' while I was fascinated with the series because it deals with an individual's desire and love," Lee said in the statement.

Lee first made his debut through a music video in 2006 and has since appeared in over half a dozen dramas and several movies.

He is well-known in the China region for his brief appearance in SBS' "Secret Garden" and gained further popularity after starring in "City Hunter" last year with Lee Min-ho.

He recently starred in China’s HunanTV’s mini-series “50% of a Fairytale" (translated title) with Chinese actors Janine Chang and Zixiao Zhu.

Lee Jun Hyuk!!!! I loved him in City Hunter even though a lot of netizens hated his character there. The only other series where he plays a lead role is in I Am Legend. I hope he gets main lead in the future! Funny how his character in Equator is somehow like his minor role in City Hall--the betrayal part that is.

I might pick this up because of him and because the screenwriter was the one who wrote The Woman Who Still Wants to Marry, which had good reviews in blogs.

Park Si Yeon joins The Equator Man



Park Si Yeon married to a worker of a securities firm on November 19, 2011.

And after a couple months enjoying married life, the 32-year-old actress finally finds the perfect time for her acting job as she decided to join the cast of new KBS drama The Equator Man.

The arrival of Park Si Yeon completes the four lead roles of The Equator Man as the drama previously cast Uhm Tae Woong, Lee Joon Hyuk and Lee Bo Young.

Although it’s very likely that Park Si Yeon will play the second lead role, but we’re very happy with this casting news as we’re so in love with her during Coffee House.

This drama has a pretty solid cast (Uhm Tae Woong, Lee Bo Young, Park Si Yeon, etc). I wasn't planning on watching this drama, but now I'm reconsidering it...

KBS Shares Two Teasers Of “Equator Man”, Starring Uhm Tae Woong & Lee Jun Hyuk



With the exception of casting news, Equator Man has pretty much been flying under the radar, overshadowed by other upcoming dramas, such as Rooftop Prince, King 2 Hearts, and Fashion King. However, KBS is finally throwing some PR its way by releasing two new teasers, featuring its male leads Uhm Tae Woong and Lee Jun Hyuk.

The teasers have the seeming existential heroes by the sea: Jun Hyuk as a terrified and tortured Lee Jang Il on a rocky cliff with waves crashing against it while a troubled Kim Sun Woo (Uhm Tae Woong) strolls through a calm yet empty beach, the quiet tide accepting his offering—a picture of childhood friends.


Teaser 1 - Uhm Taewoong

Teaser 2 - Lee Joohyuk
