Tentatively titled "Pretty Man," the drama gained attention as Yoo Young-ah, the star-screen writer of the movie "A Gift from Room Seven," wrote the script.
Jang decided to act in the drama, after reading the script.
Already industry experts cautiously predict that the series will repeat the success of the last TV drama he starred in and be the next hallyu production.
In the drama, based on a cartoon of the same name, Jang will play the role of a man with perfect looks but a cold heart. He gets the attention of many women, but ignores them. However, as the series progresses he eventually finds his true love.
Pretty Man will air in the latter half of the year.
