Actor Kim Seung Woo has been cast in drama City Conquest and will be making a return to the small screen.

Accordingly, through ties with ‘Iris’ director Yang Yoon Ho and PD Baek Jin Dong, Kim Seung Woo has made a decision to film City Conquest.

In City Conquest, Kim Seung Woo is set to star as Baek Seung Hyun, who secretly took care of the president’s secret funds for military development and possess a certain hidden influence and power, showing off his masculine aspect.

Baek Seung Hyun will play as Kim Hyun Joong’s father in the script, a character who finishes with all matters accurately and reliably, as well as a stout husband who takes care of his family boundlessly.

Even though Kim Seung Woo will only appear in five episodes, he is a very important chracter in the drama’s story development. It is expected that much anticipation will be placed on this chracter and his overwhelming charisma.

The drama, which will be adapted from the manga, is a story about the main lead character, who resented the father that abandoned himself as his mother while he was young. As a result, Bae Mi Reu (Kim Hyun Joong) grew up harboring thoughts of revenge against society. The drama aims to start airing during year end, with filming starting from 10 July onwards in Tokyo, Nikko Edomura, Tochigi prefecture.
