Updated February 9 KST:
“”The Fair” is part of tvN’s Drama Stage 2021, which showcases 10 short-form dramas that were chosen during CJ ENM’s “O’PEN” contest exhibit for new screenwriters. The theme for the exhibit was “stories that could happen to us soon.”
Nam Gyu Ri will be playing Ryu Hee Sun, the head of a lab called Final Piece that developed a new punishment system called the Virtual Crime Program (VCP). Ryu Hee Sun believes in equal retaliation as punishment for violent crimes, and her motto is “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth.”
N is playing Go Do Young, a person who uses the VCP to murder seven people and broadcast their deaths live on the internet. Actor Choi Byung Mo has also been confirmed as part of the cast.
Nam Gyu Ri said, “As the project deals with an issue that has the potential to come true, I was more careful and thoughtful about how I approached the work. It’s a serious topic, but I plan to show a deeper and different kind of acting than I have done before, so please look forward to it.”
The tvN Drama Stage 2021 will begin on March 3 at midnight KST.

VIXX’s N has confirmed another acting project!
On February 5, his agency, 51K, stated that N had been cast in “The Fair,” one of the short-form dramas that will be airing as part of tvN’s Drama Stage 2021.
The tvN Drama Stage 2021 will showcase 10 short-form dramas that were chosen during CJ ENM’s “O’PEN” contest exhibit for new screenwriters. The theme for 2021 was “stories that could happen to us soon,” meaning that each drama will tackle the big and small issues that could happen to us at any moment.
In “The Fair,” N will play the role of Go Do Young. “The Fair” is about a criminal who uses a new system of punishment called the “Virtual Crime Program” to kill seven people through live internet broadcasts. N’s character, Go Do Young, is the criminal who broadcasts the murders of his seven victims online. He is cold and capable of cruel violence when it comes to his victims, but he is also a cunning character who is weak against the strong and strong against the weak.
N said, “I’m happy to be able to greet you once more through a new project. The character of Do Young will show a different side of me that people haven’t seen before, so I felt excited as I prepared to take him on. I did have a lot of thoughts and feel a lot of pressure about taking on a dark role and concept like this, but I will work hard in order to repay the viewers’ faith in me through my acting.”
The tvN Drama Stage 2021 will start airing on March 3 at midnight KST.
