|Actor Kwon Sang-woo|
Hallyu star Kwon Sang-woo has been asked to be part of the cast of a second season of blockbuster TV series “Iris”, the actor revealed on a talk show last week.
“I have been asked to appear in season 2 of ‘Iris’ by its producer Taewon Entertainment which is also the same company producing my film ‘Into the Fire’,” Kwon said on KBS morning talkshow “Morning Live” on Friday.
“I will make up my mind after looking at the script upon receiving an official proposal,” the 37-year-old actor added.
“Iris”, currently the second most popular TV program with its ratings surpassing 36 percent last week and continuously on the rise, stars some of South Korea’s top actors including Lee Byung-hun, Kim Tae-hee and Jung Jun-ho.
Taewon recently announced they will air a second season of the spy drama which is set to go into shoot around May next year.
Kwon’s new war pic “Fire”, a fierce battle between 71 student soldiers and North Korean regular army soldiers during the Korean War, started filming in late November and is set for release in 2010.
Kwon has starred in several successful movies including “My Tutor Friend” in 2003 and “Love, So Divine” in 2004. His most famous role to date however, was in the 2003 TV series “Stairway to Heaven”, which co-starred another Hallyu star Choi Ji-woo and became a hit throughout Asia.
