Suzy And Nam Joo Hyuk’s Upcoming Drama “Start-Up” Unveils Glimpse Of Its Stars Behind The Scenes
“Start-Up” is a new drama set in a fictional South Korean version of Silicon Valley, where young dreamers set out to achieve success in the world of startup companies. Nam Joo Hyuk will star as Nam Do San, the founder of Samsan Tech, while Suzy will play the role of Seo Dal Mi, an adventurer who dreams of becoming Korea’s Steve Jobs.
In a previously released teaser, the upcoming drama highlighted the gap between protagonists Nam Do San and Seo Dal Mi’s real lives—and the lives they dream of living in the future. The clip began with Seo Dal Mi confidently introducing herself as “a CEO who will change the world” and Nam Do San describing himself as “a developer who makes the impossible possible,” before cutting to the characters’ actual realities.
A new set of behind-the-scenes photos from filming shows Suzy and Nam Joo Hyuk masterfully pulling off both sides of their characters. After effortlessly transforming into the successful power players that their characters dream of becoming, the stars manage to be just as convincing as the more relatable aspiring entrepreneurs that they are in real life.
“Start-Up” will premiere on October 17 at 9 p.m. KST.
