Im Soo Jung And Lee Do Hyun Confirmed As Leads Of New tvN Drama
On July 8, tvN announced that Im Soo Jung and Lee Do Hyun are confirmed to star in the upcoming drama “Melancholia” (literal title).
Set at a corrupt private high school with preferential treatment, “Melancholia” will tell the beautiful story of a math teacher and a genius math student.
Im Soo Jung is set to play high school math teacher Ji Yoon Soo who appears good-natured on the outside but gets very tenacious and stubborn once she makes up her mind about something. Extremely passionate about math, she is a teacher who encourages her students to find their own answers.
Lee Do Hyun will take on the role of math genius Baek Seung Yoo. He is a guy of few words who is a voluntary outsider and enjoys taking photos with a DSLR camera. Although ranked last place at his high school, he actually dominated math Olympiads when he was younger, entered the Massachusetts Institute of Technology at age 10, and dropped out at age 12.
“Melancholia” is written by Kim Ji Un of “Cheongdam-dong Alice,” “Hyde, Jekyll, Me,” and “Doctor John,” and it will be directed by Kim Sang Hyub of “Extraordinary You” and “True Beauty.” It will premiere via tvN in the second half of this year.
