  • Um Tae-woong to Play Lead in KBS Miniseries "Resurrection"
  • [2005-03-23]
  • Actor Um Tae-woong, who has drawn much attention for his latest role of Byun Hak-do in the KBS miniseries "Sassy Girl Chun-hyang," has finally landed a lead role in a television drama. He will play the male lead in the new KBS TV2 Wednesday-Thursday series called "Resurrection," which will premiere on May 25 following "Emperor of the Sea."

    In "Resurrection," Um will demonstrate just how honed his acting skills have become by playing the double role of identical twins. In the story, his two characters are born as identical twins but become separated due to a childhood mishap, and have to grow up in completely different worlds. Um will portray two contrasting characters: the easygoing and warmhearted criminal detective Seo Ha-eun, and the weak-minded but merciless Yoo Shin-hyuk, who has managed to become a successful entrepreneur.

    "I feel so excited and nervous because it's my first lead part in a miniseries. I will do my best to gain recognition for my acting," said Um.
