Im Shi-wan goes from Moon/Sun to Equator Man


He played young Yeom in The Moon That Embraces the Sun, the young upright scholar who walked around bathed in luminous backlighting and entranced court ladies everywhere. Now idol-actor Im Shi-wan has been cast in the upcoming Equator Man, which will mark his second drama role.

Equator Man is the straight-up melodrama from the writer of Women in the Sun starringUhm Tae-woong as a poor-boy-turned-CEO. The hero finds himself in a fierce rivalry with his best friend from childhood, whom he’d known since growing up at an orphanage after his father was killed. But Im Shi-wan won’t be acting with Uhm, since he’ll play the childhood role of Uhm’s rival-friend. No word yet on who will play his character in adulthood.

Too bad Baek Sung-hyun is now out of the running for playing young Uhm Tae-woong, so Im Shi-wan won’t get to act with him, either. According to his reps, Baek had considered the role when it was supposed to take up the first four weeks (7 to 8 episodes), but once that got cut down to four episodes instead, he decided against it. Baek is starting to graduate to leading man material himself, so perhaps those potatoes be too small.

Equator Man is a KBS series that’ll take up residence on Wednesday and Thursday nights, following the soon-to-wrap Wild Romance. Unintentionally hilariously, the four-episode drama that airs after Wild is called Normal Romance, which will then be followed byEquator Man on on March 14.
