WINNER’s Kang Seung Yoon Transforms Into Tough And Loyal Friend With Complicated Backstory In “Kairos”
The upcoming “time-crossing fantasy thriller” is about the interconnected fates of Kim Seo Jin (played by Shin Sung Rok), a man who falls into despair after his daughter is kidnapped, and Han Ae Ri (Lee Se Young), a woman who is searching for her missing mother. From Kim Seo Jin’s perspective, Han Ae Ri is living exactly one month in the past -but after the two miraculously communicate from their different times, they set out on a thrilling quest to save their missing loved ones.
In the drama, Kang Seung Yoon will be playing the role of Im Geon Wook, Han Ae Ri’s longtime best friend, who is always ready to rush to her aid. Despite their constant bickering, the loyal Im Geon Wook worries more about Han Ae Ri than anyone in her life and consistently takes good care of her.
On October 23, “Kairos” unveiled a new glimpse of Im Geon Wook. In one photo, he looks ready for an outing with friends in a light pink jacket, and his expression is relaxed as he talks comfortably with Han Ae Ri. However, in the other two photos, his expressions are solemn and grim. His face is covered with bruises and cuts, and he looks both worried and shocked as he converses with someone on the phone.
Im Geon Wook is known as a character who does whatever he can for Han Ae Ri. It was previously hinted that there was a reason why he is so faithful and loyal to her, and everyone will be able to see their special friendship in the premiere of “Kairos.”
The first episode of “Kairos” airs on October 26 at 9:20 p.m. KST on MBC, and it will be available on Viki!
