Big Bang‘s T.O.P. has announced plans of making an acting comeback through a casting offer from an upcoming drama tentatively titled ‘Celebrity’.
YG Entertainment revealed, “T.O.P. has plans of pursuing his acting career this year so we’re currently looking over several different drama and movie offers. We’re steering the discussion for ‘Celebrity’ in a positive light, but that is just one of many we’re considering.”
T.O.P. was rumored to be in discussion for ‘Love Rain‘ and ‘Absolute You‘ last year, but he’s decided to wait it out for ‘Celebrity’, a drama that handles the various scandals in the entertainment industry. A girl that becomes betrayed by her idol boyfriend debuts as a celebrity herself to get revenge but falls in love with another top star.
T.O.P. himself will be playing the role of a perfectionist named Jung Soo Hyun, a man that falls in love with ‘Ban Hana’, the girl that becomes betrayed by her former love.
