GOT7’s Jinyoung is set to play the lead role in an upcoming tvN romantic comedy.

“That Psychometric Guy” (working title) revolves around the story of Lee Ahn, a boy who has the supernatural ability to find out the secrets of the people he touches, and Yoon Jae-in, a girl who will do whatever it takes to hide a secret from her past.

Jinyoung will play Lee Ahn, the male lead of the drama. He was cast because his youthful and innocent image matched the character, according to the drama’s producers.
