SHINee's Onew in talks to join the cast of 'Descendants of the Sun'


Aside from his upcoming web drama, it's likely that we will get to see SHINee's Onew in a regular drama this year.

A rep of SM Entertainment told the press on April 13th,"Onew is positively considering to star in 'Decendants of the Sun'".

If he accepts the offer, he will be playing as a junior doctor of Kang Mo Yeon, played by Song Hye Kyo.

'Descentdants of the Sun' has attracted much attention thanks to its being a large-scale project. The drama is said to follow a sci-fi fantasy genre, focusing on the people in the UN peacekeeping troop and Doctor without Borders through their dream of love and success in extreme situations in a strange land.

The drama will be filmed in both Korea and internationally and is said to be 100% pre-produced before airing its first episode. It's scheduled to go on air in the second half of 2015.
