Sometime last week, a video surfaced of Eric, Yunho and Kim Kang Woo training together with Incheon special forces. From this, many speculated the possibility of all three of them being cast together in an upcoming drama ‘Poseidon’.

Representatives from the actors’ management agencies spoke up and said, “It’s true that they were taking a test onsite after receiving an offer to participate in the drama, but the final casting has not been decided yet. The final casting will be decided through the results of the test and by an observation of how well they work with the rest of the team.”

Since this time, Eric and Kim Kang Woo have both been confirmed to take a role with Kim Kang Woo taking the lead. Yunho was also confirmed, but SM Entertainment retracted this and clarified by saying that nothing was finalized. Nonetheless, many people believe there is still a high probability that Yunho will also join the cast.

‘Poseidon’ is set to start airing early next year, and it is Korea’s first series about coast guards.
