Just like Son Dambi, newbie singer Chung Lim will be putting his singing career on the backburner as he will be joining the cast of SBS sports themed drama Dream which will be airing in August (depending on Ja Myung Go schedule). Chung Lim who made his debut as a singer in March with his title song Step, will be playing a mixed martial arts fighter who has a handsome appearance. He started training himself up since the beginning of May with martial arts lessons, so as to make his acting as realistic as possible plus if certain scenes require him to go topless.
SBS Dream is a story about a youth, Lee Jang Suk (Kim Bum) who spent time in a juvenile detention center for picking pockets, and his journey to be a top boxer after he was released, with the help of a sports agent, Nam Jae Yul (Joo Jin Mo). The drama has been claimed by sections of the media as the Korean version of Jerry Maguire although the plot of Dream is nothing like it. Besides Kim Bum, Joo Jin Mo, Son Dambi and Chung Lim, others that has been confirmed for the drama include Marco (of We Got Married fame), Julien Kang, Choi Yeo Jin and Oh Dal Soo.
Unlike Son Dambi who will be acting for the first time, Chung Lim has actually had some experience in acting but he was dancing most of the time instead of acting though.
