The drama revolves around the incidents that occur among the police force and the joy, sorrow, and pain that police officers experience as they try to protect justice.
Lee Kwang Soo plays Yeom Sang Soo, a character determined to live in the mainstream of society by becoming a public official. However, he becomes an icon of misfortune with every case that he handles and runs into conflict with a superior. Jung Yoo Mi’s character Han Jung Oh is Yeom Sang Soo’s co-worker and a female officer that works to fight male chauvinism. The two characters with high fighting spirit join efforts to solve incidents.
The first script reading was held on November 16 at Studio Dragon. Lee Kwang Soo, Jung Yoo Mi, Bae Sung Woo, Bae Jong Ok, Lee Soon Jae, Sung Dong Il, Jang Hyun Sung, Shin Dong Wook, Lee Shi Un, as well as the director and writer were present.
During the script reading, everyone immersed into their roles and fell for the interesting plot of the drama. More than anything, Lee Kwang Soo and Jung Yoo Mi stood out with their unique chemistry. Jung Yoo Mi, who returned on the screen after three years, spoke her lines in a daring and brisk manner and displayed the charms of her character while Lee Kwang Soo, who is praised for his sincere acting, realistically acted out his unlucky character.
Bae Sung Woo plays Oh Yang Chon, a lieutenant of the police force who was demoted due to an unexpected incident and is thrown into difficulties at the police force. While reading his lines, he portrayed a sense of individuality. Bae Jong Ok, who plays Oh Yang Chon’s wife, grabbed attention with her charismatic acting.
The other unique actors showed off amazing acting skills that made them seem more like police officers than the real ones. Various episodes were endlessly acted out, and the production crew praised the actors for their efforts, saying, “As much as the actors showed teamwork with flawless acting, the immersion of the script reading was higher than before. Just like the title ‘Live,’ this will be a drama that depicts our lives in a lively manner.”
“Live” is aiming to air sometime in March 2018, and filming will officially begin in the beginning of December.
