If he accepts the offer, he will play lead male character Kim Woo-Jin. The drama special will be directed by Park Soo-Jin. Park Soo-Jin previously worked with Lee Jong-Suk in 2017 SBS drama series “While You Were Sleeping.” Drama special “Praise of Death” is based on the true story of Kim Woo-Jin and Yun Sim-Deok.
