Watch: Park Bo Gum, Park So Dam, Byun Woo Seok, And More Show Captivating Chemistry At Script Reading For New Drama
tvN’s upcoming drama “Record of Youth” (literal title) has released a new behind-the-scenes look at the drama’s first script reading!
“Record of Youth” is a drama about young people in the modeling industry. It will present a story about the youth of this generation who live in a world in which the “spoon” you’re born with determines your life path, and dreams are a luxury not everyone can afford. Nonetheless, their youthful passion leads them to push forward with their dreams.
Park Bo Gum will be playing the character Sa Hye Joon, a realistic young man whose dream is to become a model and an actor. He has a bright and warm personality but also knows how to look at the world objectively.
Park So Dam will be playing the character Ahn Jung Ha whose dream is to become a makeup artist. She is a sensible, hardworking character who is good at judging her own abilities. She is not easily shaken by what happens around her and walks steadily on her own path. Her goal is to abandon her inner insecurities and find stability with her own two feet.
Byun Woo Seok will be playing the character Won Hae Hyo, a model and actor who is Sa Hye Joon’s best friend. He is someone who wants to be acknowledged for his hard work rather than what he was born with. He is a kind gentleman, but he also has a fiercely competitive streak.
In the new behind-the-scenes video of the drama’s script reading, the actors ease the atmosphere with their outgoing energy and refreshing laughter. Park Bo Gum greets the actors one by one, while Byun Woo Seok shares friendly conversations with the rest of the cast members. During introductions, Park Bo Gum says, “I wish this will become a memorable drama that will be beautifully filmed. I will do my best,” and Park So Dam comments, “I hope we can be safe and well until the end of the drama.” Byun Woo Seok also added, “I hope we can have fun filming without getting hurt.”
The video also shows a glimpse of the supporting cast hard at work. Veteran actresses Ha Hee Ra and Shin Ae Ra will be playing Sa Hye Joon’s and Won Hae Hyo’s mothers, respectively. Although their sons are best friends who are walking towards the same goal, the two mothers hold very different values. Han Jin Hee, who will play Sa Hye Joon’s grandfather, shows warm grandfather-grandson chemistry with Park Bo Gum. Park Soo Young will play Sa Hye Joon’s father, while Seo Sang Won will play Won Hae Hyo’s father.
The first script reading wrapped up successfully, and the actors commented about their anticipation for the drama. Park Bo Gum commented, “I think this is a precious moment that won’t return in my youth as well,” and Byun Woo Seok shared, “It was so fun acting with the other actors.” Park So Dam asked the viewers to patiently wait for the premiere, and Park Bo Gum also expressed his hope that viewers will love the drama and wished for everyone to be happy.
The production team shared, “It was a moment when we couldn’t take our eyes off the actors who made the characters come to life. The synergy of the detailed actors who reviewed the delicate script was very powerful. The drama is a realistic portrayal of young people who strive to achieve their dreams and love during brilliant youth. We will present fresh laughter and a warm story that everyone can relate to.”
