Choi Siwon and Kang Sora in Talks for Romantic K-drama Byun Hyuk’s Love

Idol-actor Choi Siwon has been offered the male lead in upcoming romantic drama Byun Hyuk’s Love, with the lack of any news related to Siwon these past two years due to his quiet and uneventful military enlistment at the end of 2015.
