Taecyeon Cast in Japan Drama ’99 Days with Me and a Star’
Though JYP Entertainment previously reported that 2PM member Chansung would not be starring in a Japanese drama, apparently, fellow member Taecyeon will be taking his place.
The singer/rapper will be starring in the Fuji TV drama, 99 Days with a Star, alongside Korea’s princess, Kim Tae Hee, and Japanese actor Nishijima Hidetoshi.
99 Days with a Star is centered on the secret relationship between top Korean actress Han Yoo Na (Kim Tae Hee) and her bodyguard (Nishijima Hidetoshi).
Taecyeon will be playing the role of Tae Sung, who’s in a mysterious relationship with Han Yoo Na. Though the character had a dream, he gave it up because of his situation and surroundings, and also has a secret that he’s never disclosed to anyone.
The drama will be Taecyeon’s first in Japan, but he has been praised for his performances in Korea’s KBS dramas Dream High and Cinderella’s Sister.
99 Days with a Star will begin airing on October 23.
