Kim Sejeong In Talks To Star As Lead Of Korean Remake Of Japanese Drama “Sleepeeer Hit!”
Kim Sejeong may be starring as the lead of a new drama soon!
On April 5, Ilgan Sports reported, “Kim Sejeong will be starring as the lead of the SBS drama ‘Today’s Webtoon’ (literal title).” Following reports, a source from Kim Sejeong’s agency Jellyfish Entertainment clarified, “Kim Sejeong has been offered the leading role for the new SBS drama ‘Today’s Webtoon,’ and she is reviewing the offer.”
“Today’s Webtoon” will be the Korean remake of the Japanese drama “Sleepeeer Hit!” The story is about a woman who struggles together with her coworkers to mature into a true webtoon editor after joining the webtoon editorial department. The original Japanese drama aired in 2016 via TBS and received much love from viewers at the time.
If she accepts the role, Kim Sejeong will play the rookie contract employee On Ma Eum, who enters the webtoon editorial department after beating all odds. She has a large appetite, a great sense of smell, and cauliflower ears typical of a fighter as a former standing member for the judo national team. On Ma Eum had to quit her athletic career when an unfortunate accident during a match tore her ankle ligament, but she begins to dream anew when she coincidentally delivers food to the webtoon editorial department.
“Today’s Webtoon” will be penned by scriptwriter Jo Hyun Joo, and the drama is slated to air via SBS in the second half of the year.
