Even before completing his military service, So's management agency BOF announced the actor will star in the upcoming drama ``Cain and Abel.'' The drama is about the fate of two brothers separated during their childhood. The older brother, who will be played by Ji Jin-hee, grows up to become a detective. So will play the younger brother who becomes part of a organized crime sundicate.

Filming of the drama will start by the end of May, with some parts to be shot on location in San Francisco.

The 29-year old So is one of the most popular drama actors in Asia. He has starred in numerous TV dramas such as ``Thousand Years of Love," ``Glass Slippers" and ``Delicious Proposal." His popularity soared in 2004 with the dramas ``I'm Sorry, I Love You" with Lim Soo-jung and ``What Happened in Bali" with Ha Ji-won.
