Shin Sung Rok, Lee Se Young, Ahn Bo Hyun, And More Impress At 1st Script Reading For Upcoming MBC Drama
MBC’s upcoming miniseries “Kairos” (literal title) gave a glimpse into their first script reading!
“Kairos” will be a “time-crossing fantasy thriller” that tells the story of Kim Seo Jin, a man who falls into despair after his daughter is kidnapped, and Han Ae Ri, a woman searching for her missing mother who lives one month in the past from the time Kim Seo Jin is living in.
In addition to director Park Seung Woo and writer Lee Soo Hyun, actors Shin Sung Rok, Lee Se Young, Ahn Bo Hyun, Nam Gyu Ri, Shin Goo, WINNER’s Kang Seung Yoon, Hwang Jung Min, Go Kyu Pil, and more showed off their skills at the script reading.
To start things off, director Park Seung Woo commented, “I think that 90 percent of directing is gathering the right people. I feel reassured because I get to begin working with great individuals.”
Writer Lee Soo Hyun said, “It’s an honor to be working with irreplaceable actors. I will do my best.”
Shin Sung Rok takes on the lead role of Kim Seo Jin. The actor commented, “I had so much fun reading the script, so I really wanted to join the drama. Thank you for giving me this opportunity.”
During the reading, Shin Sung Rok impressed with his charismatic acting skills as he transformed into Kim Seo Jin, who is the youngest, hard-working director at his construction company.
Meanwhile, Lee Se Young will act alongside Shin Sung Rok as the character Han Ae Ri. Lee Se Young said, “I’m nervous ahead of my new transformation as an actress, but I will work hard.”
Lee Se Young brought her character to life with every detail and showed off perfect chemistry with Shin Sung Rok.
Ahn Bo Hyun also impressed everyone as Seo Do Kyun, who is Kim Seo Jin’s coworker at the construction company, and so did Nam Gyu Ri, who plays the role of Kang Hyun Chae, a violinist and the wife of Kim Seo Jin.
Shin Goo joins the cast as Yoo Seo Il, the president of the construction company. WINNER’s Kang Seung Yoon plays Han Ae Ri’s energetic friend Im Geon Wook, while Hwang Jung Min portrays Han Ae Ri’s loving mother Kwak Song Ja.
Actors Go Kyu Pil, Im Chul Hyung, Lee Joo Myung, Cho Dong In, and So Hee Jung also impressed with a great start at the reading.
