In the upcoming Korean drama series 'Scarlet Heart', Kang plays the role of the 8th Prince Wang Wook, with whom female lead IU falls in love after she is transported back in time. The drama is a remake of the similarly titled Chinese series that is widely perceived to be one of the most popular Asian romance period drama productions to date, and the remake has generated much buzz and excitement amongst audiences as well as industry insiders since it was first announced. For fans who can't wait to catch the series, Korean entertainment channel ONE, will broadcast the series the same time as its telecast in Korea, with subtitles in English, Chinese and Bahasa Malay.

Prior to Scarlet Heart, he was known for his scene-stealing stint as an over-achieving student body president in The Inheritors, as well as for his hilarious lead role in the movie Twenty, for which he clinched several Best New Actor awards.

Fans can look forward to getting up-close and personal with the charismatic actor during the meet-and-greet, with activities such an autograph session, group photo opportunities and stage games lined up for lucky fans and subscribers of ONE.

[Synopsis of Scarlet Heart]
Helmed by a star-studded cast, Scarlet Heart builds on the same premise as the original Chinese series but is based on the Korean Goryeo dynasty instead of the Chinese Qing dynasty.  Headlining the series as female protagonist is singer-songwriter and actress Lee Ji Eun (IU), whose character is catapulted back in time from the modern era.  In the past, she finds herself trapped within a web of political intrigue and complicated love lines involving the princes of Goryeo, who are played by Lee Joon Ki, Kang Ha Neul, Hong Jong Hyun, Byun Baek Hyun from K-pop boyband EXO, Nam Joo Hyuk, and Kim Ji Soo.  Rounding off the ensemble cast are rookie actress Kang Han Na and idol-actress Seo Ju Hyun of Girl’s Generation fame, who will both play princesses.

The South Korean remake is led by director Kim Kyu Tae, whose past works include acclaimed series such as That Winter, the Wind BlowsScarlet Heart is fully pre-produced for a 20-episode run.

Scarlet Heart premieres on 29 August at the same time as Korea, every Monday and Tuesday at 9pm on ONE (Singtel TV Ch 513 & 604 and StarHub TV Ch 124, 820 & 823)
