After a lot of consideration [perhaps], Hyun Joong will be in a new drama Conquest of the City. It was confirmed by his agency KeyEast. This is great news for the fans, like me awaiting his return on television. One thing that interest me is that this one is different from the two previous drama he was in, BOF and Playful Kiss where he played a handsome student. This one is somewhat rough, with a bit of action and the plot of the story is about revenge.
A bit tough, is it not? But with Hyun Joong to play the part, I think this is something to look forward to. I want to see his manly side. The more tough and rough side.
