Now that the K-pop group BTOB has finally ended their military era, there is a lot the boys are going to be able to do in terms of their solo projects as Sungjae has been considering K-drama projects after his recent discharge from the military. In terms of music, BTOB 4U, the official sub-unit of the group, took over the group's activities when the two members of BTOB, Sungjae, and Hyunsik had enlisted in the military. Once the subunit is done with their own activities, including promotions, the reunited and complete group can start work on new projects.

The group's rapper Minhyuk (also known by his pseudonym HUTA) currently has a lot going with his recently released single ‘Good Night’ being a hit amongst fans. He is also currently making a lot of heads turn, all thanks to his chiseled body and veiny washboard abs that grace the Korean edition of Men’s Health magazine in the December 2021 issue. Now that Sungjae and Hyunsik have finally returned home from fulfilling their duties towards their country, the group is finally complete and will proceed with their schedule as a group.

Sungjae for 'Gold Spoon'?

On the other hand, Sungjae has some very exciting news to share with fans who have loved his appearances on K-dramas and variety shows. On November 24 it was reported that Sungjae was going to get back to acting following his military enlistment with a new K-drama titled ‘Gold Spoon’. It is unclear if Sungjae really will be a part of the webtoon-based drama but fans can only hope for some good news. The K-drama will be based on the webtoon ‘Gold Spoon’ of the same title.

The story talks about a boy named Seung Cheon who gets his hands on a magical spoon that allows him to switch lives with his rich best friend. Making this life-altering choice leads him into a predicament that involves three choices. Seung Cheon has three attempts that will make or break his future. With his two possible futures in mind, it is upto Seung Cheon to decide if he wants to continue living in the world of the rich or go back to his poor parent. It is assumed that Sunjae will play the role of the main lead in the K-drama as reports suggest that the drama is going to begin filming soon so that the drama can be aired at the beginning of 2022.
