Over the past few weeks, fans have been crossing their fingers that Yoon would be returning to the small screen after it was reported that he was in talks to join the cast of MBC’s upcoming fantasy-thriller Kairos and those wishes were recently granted. On May 20, YG Entertainment confirmed Yoon would be joining the drama as a member of the main cast!

Kairos is a fusion of romance, fantasy, action, thriller, and time travel. The drama tells the story of Seo Jin (Shin Sung Rok) who races against time to find his missing daughter a month in the future. Meanwhile, a month in the future a woman named Ae Ri (Lee Se Young) is searching for her missing mom. The two work together to reverse the tragedies that have happened in their lives.

As soon as I read the script for ‘Kairos’, I thought it was fascinating. I’m very excited to be greeting you all as an actor after such a long time. I still have a lot to learn, but I will do my best. I would appreciate it if you all watched ‘Kairos’ with warm eyes. Thank you.
Kairos is expected to air in the second half of this year.
