(UPDATED) JYJ’s Jaejoong (Spy) and UEE (Night Light) are confirmed to be our newest dramaverse couple as both of them have accepted the offers to lead the upcoming KBS time-slip drama Manhole.
Jaejoong will play the role of Bong-pil, an only child and a neighborhood bum, who will find a random time portal that will let him travel back to the past to prevent a wedding that’s happening a week in the future.
On the other hand, UEE will take on the character of Kang Su-jin, a woman who has built a metaphorical wall between her and Bong-pil for almost two decades. And when she finally saw Bong-pil’s love for her in a different light, she’s already set to marry someone else.
Manhole is under the wings of PD Park Man-young (The Vineyard Man, Million Roses) and writer Lee Jae-gon (Special Affairs Team TEN), and is set to premiere in August as a follow-up to the Wednesday-Thursday saeguk Seven Day Queen.
