Yeo Jin-goo in Link


Yeo Jin-goo blew the audience away in the Baeksang Award-winning Beyond Evil, where he played a morally-grey detective who’s determined to get to the bottom of a 20-year-old serial murder case. And so, it wasn’t a surprise when we found out that he was offered the lead role in an upcoming drama called Link


A drama where people can feel the emotions of others


Link is a fantasy romance drama with elements of mystery. The show follows the lives of the main characters, Noh Da-hyun and Eun Gye-hoon. 

One day, Gye-hoon suddenly experiences the emotions of a woman called Noh Da-hyun. Could it be fate that brought the two together?

Yeo Jin-goo has been offered the role of Eun Gye-hoon. Gye-hoon is a restaurant owner who operates his restaurant in the same area where his twin sister died 20 years ago. Gye-hoon finds himself laughing and crying out of nowhere, and discovers that these emotions are not his own, but of a woman named Noh Da-hyun.

Kim Seon-ho was reportedly offered the same role back in November 2020. There has been no updates about Seon-ho’s appearance in Link, but we know that he’s preparing for an upcoming drama called Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha. The drama will be premiering in August.


Moon Ga-young is also in talks to star in Link
