MBC’s “Missing 9” has just cast an idol for their idol drama…how ironic. The network confirmed EXO’s Chanyeol to join the production for their upcoming series.
Lee Sun Bin (“38 Task Force”) who is a relatively unknown actress has also been cast in the drama. A rep for the drama stated “Chanyeol and Lee Sun Bin are confirmed to appear in drama ‘Missing 9,’ which used to be called ‘Picnic.'”
“Missing 9″ is a Chinese-Korean collaboration, and will be a story about a group of idols who crash onto a deserted island after their plane goes down. It is said to be a drama about self growth and coming of age along with a fantasy romance. Chanyeol will portray a playboy idol named Lee Yeol. Lee is described as a flirt who has had some legal troubles in the past.
This project has been playing musical chairs from the very beginning. The network who initially confirmed Kang Ha Neul and Girl’s Day Hyeri as the leads, has since dropped both actors. Let’s hope this round of casting is final.
