Update: Gong Myung Confirmed To Star In New Webtoon-Based Drama Series
Updated October 5 KST:
Gong Myung will be appearing in KBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama “Happy If You Died” (working title)!
As the previous article states, he will play Kang Jun Ho, the handsome and quirky chief of the marketing department.
KBS2’s new drama is based on a webtoon of the same name and is about “evil boss” Baek Jin Sang (played by Kang Ji Hwan) and outspoken assistant manager Lee Luda (played by Baek Jin Hee), who tries to transform him into a better person.
A source from the drama department revealed that Gong Myung is in talks for KBS’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama “Happy If You Died” (working title). Baek Jin Hee and Kang Ji Hwan are also in talks.
It has been a year since Gong Myung was in a drama. His last drama series was “Revolutionary Love.” He is currently working on JTBC’s drama special “The Essence Of Happiness” (working title).
Gong Myung will play the role of Kang Jun Ho, the chief of the marketing department. All the women in the company look at him in awe when he walks down the hallway. He perfectly fits the phrase “Your body figure completes your fashion.” However, he is a handsome but quirky character. When the manager tries to pass an undesirable business trip to the staff, Kang Jun Ho suggests doing a lottery (including the manager) to pick the one who will go. No one dares to say anything to him because he is the nephew of the CEO.
“Happy If You Died” is an office drama that tells the story of an evil manager and an assistant manager who tries to change him by leaping through time. It is based on the popular webtoon by the same name. It will portray the real lives of workers in Korea and refresh viewers by punching through the suffocating reality. The drama will be directed by Lee Eun Jin, who previously worked on “Hope For Dating.” “Trot Lovers,” “Sassy Go Go,” and “Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul Ho.” It is slated to air in late October.
