VIXX’s N is back to acting after a two-year-long break!
At the end of 2020, he had confirmed that he would appear in the upcoming tvN K-Drama Mine, starring Lee Bo Young and Kim Seo Hyung.
Today his agency, 51K Entertainment, confirmed that he had also been cast in The Fair, a short drama that will be part of tvN’s Drama Stage 2021.
The Drama Stage will showcase 10 short dramas that were chosen during CJ Entertainment’s O’PEN contest for new screenwriters. The theme for 2021 was “stories that could happen to us soon,” meaning that each drama will tackle issues that could happen to us in the near future.
The Fair is written by rookie screenwriter Choo Hyung Jung and directed by rookie director Min Jung Ah. The drama is about a criminal who uses a new system called the “Virtual Crime Program” to kill seven people through live internet broadcasts. N will be taking the role of Go Do Young, the criminal who broadcasts his murders online. He is cold, cruel, and cunning.
I’m happy to be able to greet you once more through a new project. Do Young will show a different side of me that people haven’t seen before, so I felt excited when preparing. I had felt a lot of pressure about taking a dark role, but I will work hard in order to repay the viewers’ faith in me.
The 2021 tvN Drama Stage will begin airing on March 3, with The Fair rumored to be released on March 10.
