Ko Kyung Pyo Cast as the ′G-Dragon of the Classical World′ in ‘Nodame Cantabile’
Ko Kyung Pyo will be joining the others in the Korean version of Nodame Cantabile (tentative title).
According to the production company of Nodame Cantabile, Ko Kyung Pyo has been confirmed to take on the role of ‘Yoo Il Rak’ (‘Mine Ryutaro’ in original drama).
‘Yoo Il Rak’ is a violist who calls himself ‘G-Dragon of the classical world,’ as he likes to stand out and wants to be a star.
As the character ‘Mine’ received a lot of love in the original drama, when the Korean version of Nodame Cantabile was confirmed, there was much competition among actors who auditioned for the role.
Ko Kyung Pyo said, “I was captivated by ‘Mine Ryutaro’ in the original comic series, as he slowly discovers his identity and passion through many trials. I would like to imprint my charms by acting as ‘Yoo Il Rak.’”
He also added, “I’ve been analyzing the character of ‘Yoo Il Rak’ and preparing hard for the upcoming project, in order to show a good side through the Korean version of Nodame Cantabile.”
Ko Kyung Pyo starred in tvN’s Potato Star 2013QR3 and recently in film Battle of Myeongnyang.
Nodame Cantabile, starring Joo Won, Shin Eun Kyung, Baek Yoon Shik and more will be airing through KBS 2TV in October.
