Weki Meki’s Kim Doyeon Joins Kim Min Kyu As Lead In Upcoming Webtoon Adaptation
Weki Meki’s Kim Doyeon has been confirmed to join Kim Min Kyu as a lead for the upcoming drama adapation of the popular webtoon “Boy and Girl Straight Out of a Cartoon” (literal title)!
Also joining the cast are Choi Hyun Wook, Han Ji Hyo, and Lim Bo Ra.
“Boy and Girl Straight Out of a Cartoon” tells the story of the chaos and whirlwind romance that occur when Chun Nam Wook (played by Kim Min Kyu), the male protagonist of a long-running manhwa (Korean comic), steps into the real world. There, he crosses paths with high school student Han Sun Nyeo (played by Kim Doyeon), who happens to share the same face and name as the female protagonist of Chun Nam Wook’s manhwa.
Kim Doyeon plays Han Sun Nyeo, who suddenly finds herself living with Chun Nam Wook as secret roommates. Han Sun Nyeo’s mother is the writer of the manhwa “Sun Nyeo and Nam Wook,” but she herself isn’t a fan of the work, nor the character Sun Nyeo.
Choi Hyun Wook plays Noh Ye Jun, Han Sun Nyeo’s best friend and soulmate, while Han Ji Hyo plays their friend and aspiring webtoon writer Park Min Jung. Lim Bo Ra plays Yoon Yi Na, whose behavior completely changes after meeting Chun Nam Wook.
A source from Playlist said, “We’ve completed the cast lineup for [the drama] with this group of unique, charismatic young actors. Please look forward to how the drama will bring a different kind of entertainment to viewers from the webtoon.”
The new drama, to be 100 percent pre-produced, will begin productions in April and is slated to air in June.
