UKISS Lee Jun Young will reportedly take the role first offer to Yoon Doo Joon in the upcoming MBC drama “One Hundred Won Butler.”
On April 26th, several media outlets reported that Lee Jun Young will be the male lead of the upcoming MBC drama “One Hundred Won Butler.” He will reportedly be working with Girls Day Lee Hye Ri in the drama.
Lee Jun Young’s agency responded to the reports and stated that the idol-actor is positively reviewing the offer.
Last March, the role was offered to Yoon Doo Joon. His agency stated that the idol-actor is reviewing the offer. But Yoon Doo Joon officially declined the casting offer due to broadcast schedule adjustment.
“One Hundred Won Butler” will revolve around Butler Kim and Baek Dong Joo. Butler Kim accepts any errand work for 100 won per job. Meanwhile, Baek Dong Joo is the funeral director who grants the wishes of the dead. They both run an errand business called Ildangbaek.
The upcoming series will be directed by Shim So Yeon who also helmed the dramas “Here’s My Plan,” “Welcome 2 Life,” and “Rich Family’s Son.”
The MBC drama “One Hundred Won Butler” will reportedly air in the second half of the year.
If Lee Jun Young accepts the casting offer, this will be his second upcoming drama for the year. He is also set to lead the upcoming series “Na Rae, Kicking Out” with Stephanie Lee.
Aside from dramas, the idol-actor will also join the upcoming movies “Brave Citizen,” “More Painful Than Sadness,” and “The Wilderness.”
Lee Jun Young started the year with the release of his 2022 Netflix original movie “Love and Leashes” with Girls Generation’s Seo Hyun.
