Yang Se Jong and Woo Do Hwan Offered Male Lead Roles in Upcoming jTBC Sageuk Drama My Country

Talk about doubling down on two of the fasting rising K-actors in 2018 for a challenging project for both. Yang Se Jong and Woo Do Hwan have been offered the male lead roles in upcoming jTBC early 2019 sageuk drama titled My Country. They play best friends turned enemies by their status and opportunities in life, and form a friendship and love triangle with the female lead. It’s a dual male role drama and sounds a lot like Warrior Baek Dong Soo which worked to catapult both male leads Ji Chang Wook and Yoo Seung Ho to the next level of their careers. Yang Se Jong did well with this year’s warmhearted second chances drama Thirty But Seventeen while Woo Do Hwan did his best in The Great Seducer which flirted with majorly low ratings.
