SF9’s Rowoon, Kim Hye Yoon, APRIL’s Naeun, And More Hold Energetic 1st Script Reading
MBC’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama “Extraordinary You” released photos from their first script reading.
“Extraordinary You” is based on a fantasy school romance webtoon called “July Found by Chance” (literal title), which tells the story of students who realize that they are actually characters in a manhwa (Korean comic) and try to go against its plot.
Actors Kim Hye Yoon (playing Eun Dan Oh), SF9’s Rowoon (playing Haru), Lee Jae Wook (playing Baek Kyung), APRIL’s Naeun (playing Yeo Joo Da), Jung Gun Joo (playing Lee Do Hwa), and Kim Young Dae (playing Oh Nam Joo) make up the main cast. Other actors including Lee Tae Ri (playing Jin Mi Chae), Kim Ji In (playing Shin Sae Mi), Uhm Hyo Sup (playing Eun Moo Young), Choi Jin Ho (playing Baek Dae Sung), and Ji Soo Won (playing Cha Ji Hyun) round up the rest of the cast. The full cast displayed their characters’ unique traits during the energetic script reading.
At the beginning of the script reading, director Kim Sang Hyub said, “It’s an honor to be together with such good people. I can especially already feel the energy since we have a lot of young actors. I will work hard so that potential and aptitude can be displayed to everyone’s content. I will do my best so that ‘Extraordinary You’ can be known [as a drama] for finding jewels. Fighting!”
During the script reading, Kim Hye Yoon impressed with her ability to transform into Eun Dan Oh by changing her gaze, speech, and overall atmosphere. Rowoon showed off a mysterious charm matching his character with perfect visuals. Showing contrasting characteristics, Lee Jae Wook flaunted the appeal of his bad boy character.
Naeun displayed the energy of her poor but optimist character Yeo Da Joo. Jung Gun Joo’s character is quite playful while Kim Young Dae portrayed his flower boy role. The mixture of diverse characters and intriguing premise will result in a fun youth story.
“Extraordinary You” will air its first episode in September.
