Kim Soo Hyun's new K-drama on the horizon after Queen of Tears' sky-high viewership: Report

 
Breaking his three-year hiatus to record sky-high viewership ratings alongside Kim Ji Won, Kim Soo Hyun's star status has won the crowd yet again with his latest offering, Queen of Tears. The rom-com project premiered earlier this month on March 9, but he's already eyeing his next OTT hit.
According to South Korean media outlet OSEN's March 21 report, Kim Soo Hyun is positively reviewing the offer to lead the upcoming series Knock Off (working title). The big award-winning hit Stranger Season 2 (also known as Forest of Secrets 2) director Park Hyun Suk will be helming the project in development. The 36-year-old actor's agency, Goldmedalist, revealed that the It's Okay to Not Be Okay star was “positively in talks to star in Knock Off.”
Kim Soo Hyun is reportedly attached to the series' protagonist role. Broadcast channels and streaming platforms are still being considered. Park Hyun Suk's directorial is touted as a black comedy series and has been listed as an OTT premiere at the moment.
Production banners Arc Media and SLL, known for their global-charting offerings such as Big Bet, The King's Affection, Not Others and High Cookie, are behind the series' advancement.

Currently rejoicing at the record-breaking viewership victory of his tvN weekend drama series Queen of Tears, Kim Soo Hyun is one of the highest-paid actors in South Korea. Having been featured in Forbes' 30 Under 30 Asia list (2016), the Baeksang Arts Award winner has grounded his top Hallyu star presence in the industry with household K-drama hits like Dream High (2011), My Love from the Star (2013) and It's Okay Not to Be Okay (2020).

Presently appearing as Baek Hyun Woo alongside Kim Ji Won's Hong Hae In, he's ruling the K-drama space on Saturdays and Sundays with his tvN series that international viewers are enjoying on Netflix. Kim Soo Hyun's ‘King of Korean Wave’ title is a testament to the ongoing rising achievements of the show, which ranked third on Netflix's global non-English Top 10 chart (March 11-17), reviving It's Okay to Not Be Okay magic on the worldwide OTT index. On the flip side, it's equally faring well in the domestic market with double-digit ratings.
