Junho and YoonA's projects
Both Junho and YoonA are also successful K-drama actors. In fact, during the MBC music festival, the 2PM star had an ongoing drama titled ‘The Red Sleeve’ which was an instant hit, constantly had high ratings and even produced a special episode due to the viewers’ demand. Well, it has now been announced that Junho’s next K-drama titled ‘King The Land’ has also roped in YoonA. While this is their first K-drama together, expectations are high, thanks to the overflowing chemistry, visuals, and the adorable friendship that the two shared while hosting in 2021.
What is ‘King The Land’ all about?
‘King The Land’ is a rom-com that follows the lives of hoteliers with Junho and YoonA being cast as the main leads. Junho is set to play Goo-won, the son of a top chaebol (family-owned conglomerate) family. He is extremely rich and successful as he owns a line of hotels, airlines, and distribution businesses. He is the perfect heir who is intelligent, elegant, and charming and is bound to be the victor of an ongoing inheritance battle.
In comes YoonA’s Chun Sa-rang, who throws off Goo-won's game since he has no expertise in the field of romance. Sa-rang is a bright and cheerful woman who ends up working as a hotelier at Go-woon’s hotel since it is where she had her happiest childhood memory. The K-drama is being produced by NPIO Entertainment and B4M Studio and filming will begin this fall.
