Kang Min Hyuk Expands Acting Career
Aside from being part of a band, Kang Min Hyuk also expanded his career in the acting industry. Last year, he joined MBC’s rom-com, Oh My Lady Lord.
The K-drama tells the story of a top thriller writer and a rom-com actress who “won’t date” and “can’t date,” respectively. Kang Min Hyuk scored the role of Jung Yoo Jin, a chaebol who has a close friendship with actress Oh Ju In in the drama.
