Recently the upcoming Korean drama remake of “Suits” released photos from its script read-through with the cast.
Slated to premiere in April on KBS 2TV, “Suits” is a South Korean remake of the popular American legal drama of the same name. It is currently still airing in the United States, having recently been renewed for an eighth season.
Present at the script read-through was director Kim Jin Woo, writer Kim Jung Min, lead actors Jang Dong Gun and Park Hyung Sik, and supporting cast Jin Hee Kyung, Chae Jung An, Go Sung Hee, and Choi Gui Hwa.
Of particular focus in both the drama and the read-through was the chemistry between Jang Dong Gun and Park Hyung Sik. Jang Dong Gun plays a legendary lawyer at South Korea’s top law firm, while Park Hyung Sik plays a rookie lawyer with the memory of a prodigy. Although this was the actors’ first time working together, they showed off a good rapport during their back-and-forth scenes in the read-through.
Other characters include the charismatic Kang Ha Yeon (Jin Hee Kyung), legal secretary Hong Da Ham (Chae Jung An), and paralegal Kim Ji Na (Go Sung Hee).
“Suits” will begin airing on April 25.
