THE STAR – Reports that former Running Man star Lee Kwang-soo is making a return to the small screen have been the subject of discussion in recent months.
On Friday, the producers of the upcoming series The Murderer’s Shopping List finally confirmed Lee’s casting.
Murderer’s Shopping List, based on a novel of the same name. is a comedy-mystery thriller that begins when a body is found in an apartment complex with only one piece of evidence left behind – a supermarket receipt.
Lee’s last K-drama project was Live of 2018, where he played a former military soldier who joins the police.
This time, the 36-year-old actor plays Ahn Dae-sung, a man who works in a supermarket owned by his mother.
His character is marked by an incident that happened in the market when he was younger.
The Running Man star will be sharing screen time with AOA’s Kim Seolhyun and Jin Hee-kyung, who have also been announced as the show’s main cast.
Kim will play the role of Ahn’s police girlfriend who is determined to hunt down the murderer while Jin plays Ahn’s mother who developed the supermarket business from scratch.
“Now that actors Lee Kwang-soo, Kim Seolhyun and Jin Hee-kyung have been chosen for our three lead roles, we feel more secure and comfortable than ever.
“Our (market) superheroes, unlike any we’ve seen before, will deliver both happy laughs and overwhelming suspense.
“Please look forward to it,” shared the producers of the K-drama which premieres next year.
