Even before its first episode has begun shooting, Kim Hyun Joong’s upcoming drama, “City Conquest,” has already earned a whopping $10 million USD.

According to Kim Hyun Joong’s agency, Keyeast Entertainment, “City Conquest” has already sold rights to air in Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and China for a total of 10 million US dollars. Kim Hyun Joong’s casting as the lead character, Baek Mir, has caught the attention of television networks abroad.
