Yoon Gyun-Sang offered lead male role in JTBC drama series “Clean With Passion For Now”

Yoon Gyun-Sang has been offered the lead male role in JTBC drama series “Clean With Passion For Now” co-starring Kim You-Jung. If he accepts, he will play Jang Sun-Gyeol. Currently, Yoon Gyun-Sang is considering the offer.

Actor/singer Ahn Hyo-Seop from boy band “One O One” was first cast to play Jang Sun-Gyeol, but he had to drop out of the drama series due to scheduling issues. Production of “Clean With Passion For Now” was temporarily halted earlier this year when Kim You-Jung experienced health issues and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Ahn Hyo-Seop was recently cast for SBS drama series “Thirty But Seventeen,” which airs in July, and, consequently, he cannot take part in “Clean With Passion For Now” when production resumes. “Clean With Passion Now” is tentatively scheduled to resume production August, 2018 with Kim You-Jung back and healthy again.
