On April 7th, Wavve announced that Choi Hyun-Wook has been cast as Ahn Soo-Ho in the upcoming drama “Weak Hero.”
In 2021, Choi Hyun-Wook won the SBS Drama Awards for Best New Actor for his roles in “Taxi Driver” and “Racket Boys.” He received a lot of attention as a rising star after playing the first main role in “Twenty-Five Twenty-One.”
Choi Hyun-Wook’s character in “Weak Hero,” Ahn Soo-Ho, is a close friend of the protagonist, Yeon Shi-Eun. He has an open and approachable personality.
Ahn Soo-Ho had no interest in school life except for graduating without absences, which he promised to his grandmother. However, as he meets Yeon Shi-Eun and Oh Beom-Seok, he begins to form friendships with them.
“Weak Hero” is an action drama based on the same-named webtoon. It tells the story of a weak boy, Yeon Shi-Eun, who fights violence inside and outside of school using his natural brain and analysis skills. Park Ji-Hoon, a former Wanna One member, plays the protagonist, Yeon Shi-Eun (Gray Yeon).
The drama will consist of eight episodes that depict how a weak boy becomes a hero in a unique way. “Weak Hero” will be directed by Yoo Su-Min, who won Best Picture at the Miseens Short Film Festival.
