South Korean drama stars Choi Woo Shik and Jang Hee Ryung will appear alongside each other in a new web drama titled Some Guy.

Website Allkpop reports that the drama Some Guy, which would star the two young actors, is a bromance of two guys who become roommates. The story will explore various facets of college life and its respective impact on students.

Some Guy is based on a webtoon of the same name that came out as winner of the 2014 Best College Comics Contest. Woo Shik will be playing the role of Park Gyu Tae, a rich student coming from a wealthy family background. Hee Ryung on the other hand will be playing a simple down-to-earth college student called Kim Min Ah.

It may be assumed that the two characters would fall in love with each other eventually. It will be interesting to see whether the relationship of these two characters end up straining the bromance of Woo Shik with his roommate on the show. It will also be interesting to see how romance develops between a rich boy and a humble girl.

Woo Shik recently took part in the breakout hit zombie film Train to Busan, starring Goblin leading man Gong Yoo. Woo Shik played a baseball team player, Young Gook, who along with his teammates tries to survive inside a zombie infested KTX train. Initially he appears to be afraid and reluctant but eventually gathers enough courage to help some of the remaining passengers survive, while attempting to locate his team's cheerleader and possibly girlfriend, Jin-hee, played by actor Ahn So-hee. Woo Shik had earned wide acclaim for his leading role in the independent film Set Me Free.

As for Hee Ryung, she has so far only been part of the 2015 reality show Sixteen from Mnet network and two other dramas. The first is Uncontrollably Fond, which ran from July to September this year, where she appeared in a supporting role and the second is MBC network's Romance Full of Life, which will be broadcast in 2017, as per asianwiki.

The two actors also recently appeared in a photoshoot for the November issue of Ceci magazine, titled Picturesque Autumn Dating. Some of the photos can be seen at Kpopstarz website.
