Park Seo-joon’s new drama, Gyeongsang Creature


It has been a while since Park Seo-joon’s last drama Itaewon Class, but fans may not need to wait long for his return to the small screen. On 14th May, it was announced that Seo-joon is considering the offer to take on the lead role in the new drama Gyeongsang Creature


Gyeongsang Creature a thriller about survival & human rights


Gyeongsang Creature is a thriller about youths who are struggling to survive in a society that deprives people of basic human rights, torn between survival and dignity. This seems to be a drama set in an alternate reality, where people live in a world with no justice.

If Seo-joon decides to accept the offer, he will take on the role of rich man Jang Tae-san, who is indifferent about justice and only cares to live for himself. One day, Tae-san meets a woman who will change his life. 

The female lead for this drama is not confirmed yet. 

The detailed synopsis of the drama has yet to be released too, but from what we know, it seems very intriguing. Furthermore, Gyeongsang Creature, also known as Project K, is written by Kang Eun-kyung, who was the writer for popular drama Dr. Romantic. So we’re expecting this new drama to be as good as the medical drama.
