Weki Meki’s Kim Doyeon Confirmed To Join Girl’s Day’s Hyeri And Jang Ki Yong In New tvN Romance Drama
On February 16, a source from Kim Doyeon’s agency Fantagio shared, “Kim Doyeon has been cast in the role of Kye Seo Woo in tvN’s ‘My Roommate is Gumiho,’ which is scheduled to air in the first half of 2021, and will continue to follow the path of an idol actor.”
The upcoming drama is based on a webtoon of the same name about a 22-year-old female college student named Lee Dam (Hyeri) who accidentally swallows the marble of a 999-year-old male gumiho (a mythological nine-tailed fox) named Shin Woo Yeo (Jang Ki Yong), who was close to achieving his goal of becoming human. If a human swallows the marble, they can only live for one year, and the marble will break, preventing the gumiho from becoming human. Thus, Shin Woo Yeo suggests living together to Lee Dam, beginning their unexpected romance. In addition to Jang Ki Yong and Hyeri, the drama will also star Kang Han Na, Kim Do Wan, and Bae In Hyuk.
Kim Doyeon will be playing Kye Seo Woo, the younger sister of the handsome Kye Sun Woo (Bae In Hyuk), who has a one-sided crush on Lee Dam. Kye Seo Woo is a high school student who is mature beyond her age. She makes level-headed judgements and doles out advice without any mercy, making the drama even more lively with her refreshing comments that don’t sugarcoat the truth.
This will be Kim Doyeon’s first time starring in a TV miniseries since her debut. Previously, Kim Doyeon began acting through the 2018 web drama “Short,” and she starred in “Pop Out Boy” and “Single & Ready to Mingle.”
Kim Doyeon made her debut as a member of I.O.I after starring in Mnet’s “Produce 101” in 2016. Following her activities with I.O.I, Kim Doyeon debuted as a member of Weki Meki, and she has been promoting actively in both music and acting since then.
