Park Seo Joon Is Ready To Chase His Dreams In Poster For Upcoming Drama
JTBC’s “Itaewon Class” (literal title) has unveiled its first poster featuring star Park Seo Joon!
Based on the webtoon of the same name, “Itaewon Class” is an upcoming drama about young people fighting back against an unreasonable society as they chase after their dreams and the freedom to live according to their unique perspectives.
Park Seo Joon will be starring in the drama as Park Sae Roy, a passionate entrepreneur who is uncompromising in the face of injustice and corruption. Armed only with his convictions and his anger over the death of his father, Park Sae Roy bursts onto the Itaewon scene and boldly goes up against the food industry conglomerate Jang Ga.
On December 13, “Itaewon Class” revealed its first glimpse of Park Seo Joon in character as Park Sae Roy through a teaser poster. The newly released poster captures Park Sae Roy on the roof of his gastropub in the neighborhood of Itaewon, looking out at the view with a hopeful smile on his face.
The poster’s caption reads, “I now have a dream that I want to achieve. Now, in this place.”
Park Seo Joon remarked, “Because many readers of the original webtoon have named Park Sae Roy their all-time favorite character, I do feel a lot of pressure [about the role]. But at the same time, that also indicates just how charming the character is, so I wanted to take on the challenge.”
The producers of the drama commented, “You can safely look forward to Park Seo Joon’s new version of Park Sae Roy, which will amplify the charms of the original character. We ask that you show a lot of interest and anticipation for ‘Itaewon Class,’ which will recreate [the original webtoon] with an even deeper story and lots of eye-catching new sights.”
“Itaewon Class” is scheduled to premiere on January 31 at 10:50 p.m. KST.
