I am very pleased to hear this! I was ready for something new from him after “Rough Cut” and “Sophie’s Revenge” (which are both great, if you haven’t seen them!). According to hancinema.com, So Ji Sub has been cast to play the lead role opposite Song Il-gon in “Only You”, a romantic drama. Apparently, he will be playing a boxer, and Song Il-gon will be playing his love interest, who is going blind.
I know he’s the type that chooses roles carefully, so I know he’ll put all his best into it and show us what he’s working with.
