The writer behind the hit series "Goblin" and "Descendants of the Sun" will soon delight avid K-drama fans with a new small screen production. Recently, Kim Eun Sook shared interesting information about her upcoming drama tentatively titled "Mr. Sunshine" and provided a hint on the actor who might play the said series' lead role.

Kim Eun Sook had a string of blockbuster small screen productions such as the tvN fantasy series "Goblin" that starred Gong Yoo as the titular character, including the global hit "Descendants of the Sun." For her upcoming drama "Mr. Sunshine," the writer is set to tap an actor who has very good acting skills.

The "Goblin" writer already has an actor in mind whom she considers would be the perfect person to play the male lead in "Mr. Sunshine." Despite declining to name the said celebrity, Kim Eun Sook shared in a recent interview that her ideal actor is someone who has a "large breath of emotions," Soompi reported.

Given that the drama's male protagonist is a Korean national who became a U.S. Army soldier before returning to his home country, the said actor should also have above average English speaking skills. Moreover, the "Goblin" writer mentioned that she was still thinking whether the male lead's age would be between 30 to 40 years old.

Meanwhile, shortly after Kim Eun Sook revealed the profile of the actor that she would like to cast for the upcoming drama "Mr. Sunshine," netizens came up with a few South Korean celebrities who might be ideal candidates for the role. Several Kdrama fans highlighted the "That Winter, The Winter Blows" star Jo In Sung, Lee Jun Ki, Hyun Bin, as well as Ji Sung whose acting prowess was showcased in dramas such as "Heal Me, Kill Me" and "Defendant," according to online comments posted on Koreaboo.

At this time, casting news for Kim Eun Sook's upcoming drama "Mr. Sunshine" have yet to be revealed. The "Goblin" writer's new series is expected to be released in 2018.
