KBS officials have confirmed to JoyNews24 that the shooting of the drama is currently underway and the team is reviewing for an April broadcast. There is no doubt that Hung Sik is the key attraction of Suits. Probably one of the youngest actors to achieve a mass stardom in a short span of time, Hyung Sik literally made the hearts flutter with his cute role (as Min Min) in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. And fans are eagerly waiting for his serious and legal avatar.

Interestingly, in a recent fan meet, when quipped about the kind of roles that he likes to do, Hyung Sik replied that he is eager to do any roles that come his way. However, his idol type would be a super-hero character in a sci-fi film. Well, that is like 'The Avengers' type! He also added that he would like to play a vampire or a werewolf in the future.

Meanwhile, Hyung Sik's short film "Two Lights: Relúmĭno" is all ready to be released online today (December 21). The short film revolves around the love story of visually impaired individuals In Soo (Hyung Sik) and Soo Young (Han Ji Min).

Check out the official trailer for 'Two Lights.'
