Lee Joon-gi's upcoming mini-series on MBC is growing more promising by the day, with yet another quality actor to join an already impressive roaster.

Actor Yoo Seung-ho has been earmarked to play the Great Jade Emperor at "Arangsatojeon" (tentative title) set to air in July this year, the show's promoter Pink Spoon Media announced through a press release on Friday.

The teenage actor is the latest star to be linked with the project, following an announcement early this month that actor Yeon Woo-jin has signed on to play a villain named Joo-hwal.

In the forthcoming historical series, which combines fantasy and melo-drama genre, other main casts include actresses Shin Min-ah-- the female lead in "My Girlfriend is Gumiho" (SBS, 2010) opposite Lee Seung-gi-- and Hwang Bo-ra, who is currently starring in KBS' Love Rain as a perky character.

According to Pink Spoon Media's statement, Yoo's character "provides the key to solve the problems that the lead characters Arang(Actress Shin Min-ah and Eun-oh(Lee) go through."

Aiming to hit the small screen in about two months, the show's crew will begin their shooting in May.

Yoo, who made his debut at the early age of ten, has many credits under his belt including debut film "The Way Home" (2002), "Love Letter" (MBC, 2003), "Queen Seon-duk" (MBC, 2009) and "Master of Study" (KBS2, 2010).

Last month, he wrapped up starring in "Operation Love" (translated title) on Chosun Ilbo's cable television channel, and finished shooting actress and director Ku Hye-sun's short film, "Scattered Pieces of Memories" (translated title).
