On the heels of his successful portrayal of the comical office manager Kim Sung-ryong in the recently ended TV series “Good Manager,” actor Namgoong Min will be returning in the upcoming series “Fabrication” (unofficial translation).
The show, written by Kim Hyun-jung and directed by Lee Jung-heum, revolves around reporters who strive to uncover the injustices of society.
Namgoong will be taking up the role of Han Moo-young, a reckless reporter who, after watching a colleague die while on a corruption probe, vows revenge against the powers that killed him.
“(The actor) put a lot of thought into what he should do next, as ‘Good Manager’ received so much love from viewers,” said Namgoong’s agency Thursday. “The upcoming drama will show a more serious and charismatic side of Namgoong, unlike the previous show.”
The show is set to air on SBS in around July, after the end of “My Sassy Girl.”
