Fantagio / "Dak Gong Jeong" Webtoon

One of the hottest idol actors in the Korean entertainment industry is making headlines again, this time for his potential casting in another popular webtoon-based drama! We're talking of course about ASTRO's Cha EunWoo, whose latest work "True Beauty", was a mega-hit with viewers not just in Korea but all over the world!

Recently, it was reported that Cha EunWoo has been offered a role in the upcoming drama "Dak Gang Jeong" (or "Sweet and Sour Chicken") based on the popular webtoon of the same name. The author of the original work is Park JiDok and the adaptation will be helmed by director Lee ByungHun, who has previously delivered incredible works like "Melo Is My Nature", "Extreme Job" and more. The adaptation will have 12 episodes and is currently in the process of casting. This will therefore be one of the numerous webtoon adaptations of 2021.

The webtoon tells the strange story of how a beautiful young girl, Choi MinAh, is turned into fried chicken because she happens to enter a mysterious machine. It follows Choi SunMan, her father, and Go BaekJung, an intern, who join efforts to turn her back to human and discover deep dark secrets in the process. What seems like a comedy on the surface is actually a science fiction thriller that will leave you curious until the end.

Here's a look at the webtoon!

Mystery lingers behind the machine that turned MinAh into fried chicken. BaekJung seems to be interested in MinAh as well, which might be one of the driving forces behind his efforts at bringing her back.

In addition, BaekJung seems to be smart, hard-working, resourceful, and at times, even playful and quirky.

Cha Eun-woo is a good actor. He can pull off this character in the webtoon. Besides, in real life he is also a comedian by showing his crackhead personality when he's with his ASTRO brothers.

There is a part when Go Baekjung tried to transform himself into Cha Eunwoo by using that mysterious machine in about chapter 17 or 18. But sadly he failed. Is this why CEW get offered lmao
