After her skyrocketing fame in All of Us Are Dead, Cho Yi Hyun is selected as the female lead in the upcoming K-drama Vampire Chef.
There's no stopping the rising star from achieving greater heights as she is set to portray a different character.
Cho Yi Hyun Offered to be Kang Mi Ro in Vampire Chef
In a report cited by Osen, Cho Yi Hyun's agency shared that the actress received the casting offer, but it is still "under discussion."
The forthcoming series is based on a popular webtoon that follows the story of a master chef named Hong Ki Joon, a half-vampire born from a human father and a vampire mother.
If Cho Yi Hyun confirms her appearance, she will take on the role of Kang Mi Ro, Hong Ki Joon's childhood friend and his first victim.
After years since he had his "first bite," the chef unexpectedly got reunited with Mi Ro after she visited the restaurant, not knowing that it was owned by Ki Joon.
The master chef couldn't forget how her blood tasted and after seeing her for the first time in 25 years, he plans to get a taste of her blood once again.
Following the news about Cho Yi Hyun's possible new drama, the male lead for the webtoon-based series is yet to be announced.
As mentioned by the outlet, Vampire Chef aims to start filming this March and is slated to premiere in the second half of 2022.
