Korean dramas have been growing more and more popular amongst local audiences in Indonesia. The drama “Golden Rainbow,” which recently ended, is about to be aired in Indonesia, which means that the Jung’s popularity is set to skyrocket in the near future, according to Yahoo Entertainment Singapore.
The actor will be playing Lee Rin, who has the ability to see ghosts, on MBC’s new Monday -Tuesday drama “The Night Watchman.” He will be acting alongside idol member Yunho of TVXQ.
Through the course of the drama, Lee Rin will mature as he gets rid of the ghosts that are lurking and experiences how his people live.
“I’ve decided to take on the male lead role of ‘The Night Watchman.’ The ‘Night Watchman’ role that I’ve never seen in other dramas appealed to me,” stated the actor, according to Allkpop.
He added, “It’s my first time playing a character like this, so I’m nervous, but I’m looking forward to it even more, so I’ll be able to show a different side of me. Please anticipate it.”
Jung will also be traveling to Brazil with the members of “Infinite Challenge” as part of the cheer team this June.
