Korean actors Kim Woo-bin and Kang So-ra are in talks to take the leading roles of upcoming romantic drama "Jeju Island Gatsby," according to their respective management companies Wednesday.

"(Kim) has gotten the script, but (the deal) is still in the discussion stage," said the actor's management label SidusHQ. Kang's agency Will Entertainment also said nothing had yet been confirmed.

MBC drama "Jeju Island Gatsby" follows the romantic tale of two future lovers who meet on the island off Korea's south coast after abandoning the ruthless city life. The screenplay was written by Hong Mi-ran and Hong Jung-eun, known as the Hong sisters in the Korean drama industry.

If both actors accept the leading roles, it will be the first time for them to star opposite each other in romantic roles.

"Jeju Island Gatsby" will air in May, after current MBC romantic drama "Kill Me, Heal Me" and "Angry Mom" starring K-pop boy band B1A4's Baro, which will broadcast in March.
