INFINITE’s Sungyeol has been cast as the male lead in the new KBS 1TV drama ‘I Love You Even If I Hate You’.
In the drama, Sungyeol will play the character of Hong Suk Pyo. He is the actual CEO of the company Genius Chemical established by his mother but is working as a janitor at a subsidiary company, Genius Beauty Center, due to unavoidable circumstances. Raised in loneliness due to his workaholic mother, Hong Suk Pyo may be proud and grumpy at a first glance. On the inside, however, he is always hungry for love from family and is devoted to the woman he loves.
Sungyeol revealed during an interview, “It’s an honor to participate in a good work. I’m happy and excited to work with the director, writers, and cast members.”
Actress Pyo Ye Jin will be Sungyeol’s co-star in the new drama
Meanwhile, actress Pyo Ye Jin will reportedly be the female lead for ‘I Love You Even If I Hate You’. She left a strong impression on viewers in the drama ‘Fight My Way’. Although it has not yet been confirmed, she will play the role of Eun Jo. Hong Suk Pyo and Eun Jo bicker all the time due to their similar personalities, but Hong Suk Pyo soon finds himself comfortable around Eun Jo and drawn to her.
‘I Love You Even If I Hate You’ is the heartwarming story of a woman who has led an eventful life since she was a child. She loses everything she had and starts all over again, but that’s when her life starts to bloom.
The drama will begin airing on KBS 1TV in November.
