On July 31, the production company stated, “The female lead for ‘Real’ has not been chosen yet. Individuals can participate in auditions through online submissions. For those who are unfamiliar with this process, they can upload their profile and audition through the homepage. Auditions have been extended until August 7.”
The production company aims to cast a female lead as well as discover rookie actors through their online audition process.
It appears as though many rookie actors have taken advantage of this opportunity and submitted applications. As of July 30, the current competition rate was 3200 to 1. With so many applicants, perhaps a female lead can be confirmed soon.
Meanwhile, the film “Real” has affirmed Kim Soo Hyun as the male lead and Lee Jung Seob as its director.
