GOT7’s Jinyoung Confirmed To Star In New tvN Romantic Comedy
GOT7’s Jinyoung will officially be starring in a new tvN drama!
On December 6, the upcoming drama “That Psychometric Guy” (working title) confirmed that Jinyoung would be playing the lead role of Yi Ahn, a young man with supernatural powers. The character has the ability to learn the deepest secrets of anyone he touches by instantly seeing their most powerful memories. Although he is blessed with head-turning good looks and psychic abilities, Yi Ahn has an endearingly clumsy and oafish side.
“That Psychometric Guy,” which is described as “a romantic comedy disguised as a thriller,” will tell the love story of Yi Ahn and Yoon Jae In, a girl who will do whatever it takes to hide a painful secret from her past. After being swept up in a series of incidents that bring them together, the two grow closer and gradually learn from their experiences.
The drama’s producers remarked, “Jinyoung’s youthful, innocent, and boyish vibe matched perfectly with the character of Yi Ahn. On top of that, his sincerity and meticulousness will flesh out the character of Yi Ahn and make him three-dimensional while also adding to his charm.”
They added, “We plan to present you with a drama that will bring both refreshing and warm entertainment to viewers. Please look forward to it.”
Jinyoung first made his acting debut in 2012, when he appeared in the KBS drama “Dream High 2.” He has since gone on to appear in dramas such as “My Love Eun Dong” and “The Legend of the Blue Sea,” as well as the 2017 film “A Stray Goat.”
Meanwhile, “That Psychometric Guy” is currently scheduled to premiere in the first half of 2019.
