Since the premiere of El Juego Del Calamar , the eyes of production companies around the world turned to the actors in this series, so obviously the protagonist could not be the exception.

Being a talented actor and with such a recent media success outside of South Korea, it was to be expected that a saga as big as Star Wars would choose him.
