The main roles of MBC’s new Monday-Tuesday drama, “The Night Watchman,” has been completed. During the beginning of pre-production, the original plan was to cast three male actors and one female actor, however, they changed it to two male actors and two female actors.
“The Night Watchman” is about a watchman who patrols from nine to five at night to catch ghosts.
It has been confirmed that actor Jung Il Woo will be playing the role of Lee Rin and TVXQ’s Yunho will be playing the role of Mu Seok. For the roles of Do Hwa and Soo Ryun, actress Go Sung Hee and Seo Yae Ji has been confirmed.
The casting of rookie actresses is what caught the attention of many people. According to an official, they explained that, “The director decided that rather than casting an actress with many different images, casting a fresh face would be better. The director made this decision right from the beginning.”
In the beginning, the story was focused on the cold, elite In Oh, the pretty boy Mu Jin, the innocent Chul Joo and the main female lead, Do Ha.
However, the number of main male and female roles has been changed. Although the genre is historical, the romance part of the drama will increase, making this a fantasy, romance drama.
The company, Raemongraein, will be in charge of production for this drama as they have been successful with the drama, “Sungkyunkwan Scandal.”
“The Night Watchman” will be aired in July after the current drama, “Triangle,” comes to an end.
