Chun Kwang-Ryul, hero of the hugely popular drama "Hur Chun," was cast as Im Sang-Ok, lead character in the upcoming historical drama "Sangdo." MBC will air the series to celebrate the 30th anniversary of its founding.

"Sangdo" is an adaptation of a novel of the same name by Cho In-Ho.

Lee Sun-Jae, a leading actor who played the role of Yoo Eui-Tae, Hur Chun`s teacher, was cast as a business magnate who engages in heated business competition with Im Sang-Ok.
