“Terius Behind Me” Writer Talks About Imagining So Ji Sub While Writing Script
The writer of MBC’s “Terius Behind Me” shared behind-the-scenes stories about the upcoming drama.
“Terius Behind Me” is about a mysterious black ops agent who disappears after a failed mission and a woman who gets dragged into a war of espionage as his neighbor.
Writer Oh Ji Young began, “I imagined what it would be like if an unrealistically handsome guy lived next door or in the same apartment building. I thought that it would be pleasing and fun to just see this man walking around. A mysterious man who appeared like a vitamin in the daily repetitive lives of middle-aged women. This is where the drama began.”
She continued, “The foundation of the drama was completed with middle-aged women who were watching him at their apartment, mom cafés, group chat rooms, and with the addition of a national conspiracy.”
About the characters in the drama, Oh Ji Young explained, “The black ops agent Kim Bon (played by So Ji Sub) who chases a large national conspiracy, in some way, looks like a character from a movie. On the other hand, Go Ae Rin (played by Jung In Sun) is a character who lives the realistic life of a middle-aged woman. I came to decide on these two characters in order to maximize the fun and fantasy when their two unrealistic and realistic worlds, and their lives cross over.”
She added, “From the beginning, I thought of So Ji Sub while writing the synopsis script. As a writer, I’m so grateful that he happily agreed to this role.”
Oh Ji Young, who previously wrote “Shopping King Louie,” and director Park Sang Hoon will work together to create this drama.
“Terius Behind Me” will premiere on September 27 at 10 p.m. KST. Check out the latest teaser here!
