[NEWS] 2PM Chansung, casted in a Japanese drama.. Acting battle with Taecyeon, 2PM (Chansung)

2PM Chansung will be appearing in a Japanese drama.

His company, JYP Entertainment, revealed to segye.com on the 6th, "Chansung has been casted in the TBS drama series 'Kaito Royale'." Chansung started filming the drama two weeks ago and the first episode will air on the 28th.

With the motif of an online game with the same name, this drama talks of a story of four thieves. The leading actor, Matsuzaka Tori, will play the intelligent type thief while Chansung will act as the body type thief.

A company representative explained, "The 2PM members have been studying Japanese steadily all this time. Because of the fast increase in Japanese ability, Chansung has had no language problems while acting. From what the local staff say, when Chansung first started filming, he seemed somewhat inexperienced, but now he boasts a superb acting ability."

Other than Chansung, 2PM also has Taecyeon who is confirmed to be acting in the FujiTV Sunday drama 'My 99 Days With A Star'. This drama is set to air starting on the 23rd, so the two people's acting battle will roll out.
