YG Entertainment announced on May 20 that WINNER’s Kang Seung Yoon has confirmed for the upcoming MBC drama “Kairos.”
“Kairos” is a romantic fantasy thriller about a man named Seo Jin (played by Shin Sung Rok), who falls into shock when his young daughter is kidnapped, and a woman named Ae Ri (played by Lee Se Young), who is looking for her missing mother. The two, who live in the present and past respectively, work together to reverse the tragedies that have befallen them and come across new truths and cases in the process.
Kang Seung Yoon plays Lim Gun Wook, Ae Ri’s friend. Gun Wook is someone who was vulnerable and had no presence throughout school. When it comes to Ae Ri, however, he is ready to do whatever she says and is there to help her whenever she needs. Gun Wook will play an important role in Ae Ri’s search for her mother.
The WINNER member, who is returning to acting for the first time in over two years, has previously acted in MBC’s “High Kick! Revenge of the Short-Legged,” web drama “Love for a Thousand More,” and tvN’s “Prison Playbook.”
Kang Seung Yoon commented, “I was hooked as soon as I read the script for ‘Kairos.’ I’m really excited to be returning as an actor after a long time. I still have a lot to learn, but I’ll do my best so as not to become a hindrance to those I’m working with. Please look upon me kindly. Thank you.”
“Kairos” is slated to air in the second half of this year.
