Watch: Seo In Guk, Park Bo Young, Lee Soo Hyuk, Kang Tae Oh, And More Share Excitement For Upcoming Romance Drama
tvN has released a behind-the-scenes video from the script reading of the upcoming drama “Doom at Your Service”!
“Doom at Your Service” is a fantasy romance drama about a man called “doom” who causes everything he touches to vanish (Seo In Guk), and a woman who puts her life on the line to avoid her fate (Park Bo Young). It is written by Im Me-ari (“Beauty Inside”) and directed by Kwon Young Il (“My Unfamiliar Family”).
Park Bo Young stars as Tak Dong Kyung, a woman who has lived an ordinary life without any clear goals or dreams. When she suddenly only has 100 days to live, she makes a risky contract with a mysterious figure to change her fate.
Seo In Guk stars as Myul Mang (literally means “ruin” or “doom”), whom the actor introduces as, “He’s not human. He’s a character that wishes for the destruction of the world.” Although his character walks alone through the streets of crowded people, he finds himself drawn to Tak Dong Kyung’s combative personality.
The drama also stars Lee Soo Hyuk as Cha Joo Ik, the head editor at the web novel publisher where Tak Dong Kyung works. He is described as the “master” of the first kiss and helps his web novelists to create better romantic stories by giving them romantic inspiration in real life. In the video, Park Bo Young admires his acting and says, “He comes in with such a sweet smile and then turns perfectly cold as soon as filming is about to start.”
Kang Tae Oh appears as Lee Hyun Kyu, a café owner who regrets running away from his first love. Shin Do Hyun plays Na Ji Na, a web novelist who gets caught up in a love triangle between Cha Joo Ik and Lee Hyun Kyu. The actress said, “This is my first time acting in a love story. I hope to show my growth as I walk this path strewn with roses and thorns.”
Other cast members include Jung Ji So, SF9’s Dawon, and Woo Hee Jin.
Park Bo Young and Seo In Guk shared that they were drawn to the drama because the script was entertaining. Park Bo Young said, “I felt like I could deeply relate to the character as I read, and I hope the viewers feel that too.” Seo In Guk said, “The character was very appealing and I really wanted to play him.”
Asked how they felt about working with each other, Park Bo Young laughed and said, “It’s about time! I felt that we would work together sometime, so I’m glad that we could meet in such a great project.” Seo In Guk said, “We’ve met several times offscreen. There are several directors that we’ve both worked with in separate projects. So we’ve always wanted to work together.”
The cast was also asked what wishes they would make if they only had 100 days to live. Shin Do Hyun exclaimed, “I think everyone would have said mine already! Wishing for more wishes (Lee Soo Hyuk made this wish), or wishing to live longer (Seo In Guk made this wish) or wishing that my loved ones wouldn’t be too sad (Park Bo Young made this wish).”
