“30 But 17” PD Talks About His Efforts To Cast Yang Se Jong
The PD spoke at a press conference for the drama that was held on July 2 at the SBS Broadcasting Center in Seoul.
Jo Soo Won said, “In the case of Yang Se Jong, I put in a lot of effort. He was the most popular actor when I was preparing this drama, and now that we’re filming, I think he’s a good match. I have a feeling that the two actors [Yang Se Jong and Shin Hye Sun] will be able to show fun sides that they haven’t been able to show before.”
On his casting efforts, the PD explained, “It was a situation where all of the broadcasting companies were sending offers to Yang Se Jong. I meant that I put in more effort in that situation. The point where I hesitated was that the female character led the title and story. In Yang Se Jong’s perspective, I thought that he might want to lead his own story, so I persuaded him even more.”
“30 but 17” will tell the story of a woman who fell into a coma at 17 years old and wakes up when she’s 30, and a man who wants to be cut off from the rest of the world. It’s a romantic comedy about 30-year-olds who love like they’re 17.
“30 but 17” will premiere on July 23 and will be available on Viki! In the meantime, check out the first teasers here.
