Kim Jung Hyun might have his K-drama comeback after months of hiatus.

The South Korean heartthrob is in talks to star in the upcoming series Season of Kkok Du.

Kim Hyun Jung’s K-drama Comeback

As noted by Soompi, Kim Hyun Jung’s agency, Story J Company, confirmed that the actor is courted to star in the medical fantasy series.

In a statement obtained by the outlet, the label announced, “Kim Jung Hyun has received an offer to appear in Season of Kkok Du, and he is currently in talks for the drama.”

If the actor accepts the offer, he will play the role of a high-ranking grim reaper named Kkok Du.

Every 99 years, the cold-hearted grim reaper goes on sabbatical and spends 49 days in the world of the living; however, things get complicated when he meets the female doctor Han Gye Jeol.

Fortunately, Kim Jung Hyun managed to come back despite being embroiled in the controversy involving ex-girlfriend Seo Ye Ji.

In 2021, it was revealed that the actress manipulated the actor and prevented him from doing skinship with co-star Seohyun for their K-drama Time.

It is also the reason why Kim Jung Hyun was criticized for his ill behavior towards the Girls’ Generation member.
