Super Junior’s Kibum has been cast as the lead actor in the upcoming Chinese drama ”Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils”, marking the first time the idol will act in a Chinese series.
The new show will be based off the 1960s novel by the same name written by Jin Yong. The story revolves around the “Eight Races” in Buddhist mythology.
“I’m honored to be playing such a great role in a great production. I’m pretty nervous since this is my first Chinese drama, but I’ve discussed my role with the director and will do my best to portray my character,” the idol stated. Wallace Chung and Meng Zhang will be costarring in the series alongside Kibum. “Demi-Gods and Semi-Devils” will premiere during the 2nd half of 2013.
