There’s been a lot of casting news about “The Scholar Who Walks the Night,” and today, we finally get the confirmation that Kim So Eun, Lee Yoo Bi, and TVXQ‘s Changmin joins Lee Jun Ki as the leads for the new drama. Lee Jun Ki was the only one solidly confirmed until now.
“The Scholar Who Walks the Night” is a drama based on the popular webtoon by the same name. The original story is set in the Joseon dynasty and draws the story of young girl from a ruined upper-class family, who dresses up like a man to sell books. During one of her sales, she meets a vampire scholar.
Lee Jun Ki will play the beautiful and seductive vampire scholar named Kim Sung Yeol. Lee Yoo Bi will play the cross-dressing female lead.
While the first report on this confirmation stated that the four already did a script reading for the drama, a new report has come out to clarify that only a first meeting between the director and these four leads have been held.
This drama is expected to premiere in July after the yet to be broadcast “Agreeably Warm” completes its run. “Agreeably Warm” premieres after the currently airing “Angry Mom” on MBC.
