Ryu Soo Young Cast for MBC Drama ′Two Weeks′
Ryu Soo Young will be returning to his career after showing off his variety skills on MBC′s Real Man.
On June 11, Ryu Soo Young′s agency Will Entertainment announced that the actor will be appearing in MBC′s Two Weeks, and that he attended a script reading for the drama on June 4.
Two Weeks is about how a man named Jang Tae San (Lee Joon Gi), who was framed for murder after leading a meaningless life, fights hard for two weeks to help his daughter, who suffers from leukemia.
Lee Joon Gi, Kim So Yeon, Park Ha Sun and Cho Min Ki have been confirmed for roles in the drama.
Ryu Soo Young will appear as detective Lim Seung Woo, a talented detective born from a long line of policemen in his family. He tries to put Jang Tae San away behind bars, and enters a love triangle with Tae San and Seo In Hye (Park Ha Sun).
As the drama is scheduled to air in August, many fans have shown concern on whether he will be able to appear in both the drama and Real Man.
A rep from the agency said, "Ryu Soo Young is very attached to both Two Weeks and Real Man. Thankfully, the producers of both shows have taken consideration of the other, and so Ryu Soo Young will be able to appear in both shows. We′ll try to fix his schedule so it′s not too much of a strain."
Ryu Soo Young said, "It′s my first detective role of my career, but I′m really looking forward to it. I met this piece while I′ve been wanting to appear in a manly role. I′m looking forward to showing sides of myself I′ve never shown before. I want to thank the directors and staff of Two Weeks and Real Man for showing their consideration despite their own busy schedules. I′ll work hard so I won′t be a burden to any."
Two Weeks will air in The Queen′s Classroom′s time slot in August.
