SF9’s Rowoon Confirmed For New Fantasy Drama With Kim Hee Sun
Previously in July, Kim Hee Sun confirmed to join the cast of MBC’s upcoming drama “Tomorrow” (literal translation). On November 4, the drama confirmed that Rowoon will take the lead role.
“Tomorrow” will tell the story of Choi Joon Woong, who gets into an unfortunate accident while struggling to find a job. As a result, he crosses paths with grim reapers Goo Ryun and Lim Ryoong Goo, who work together to save the lives of those who are contemplating suicide, and he winds up joining their team in the underworld as their youngest member.
Kim Hee Sun will be playing the role of Goo Ryun, the fearless and charismatic grim reaper who leads the “Danger Management Team.” Due to her ice-cold personality, she pushes people away and doesn’t form attachments to those around her.
Rowoon will take the role of Choi Joon Woong. His character is a long-term job seeker who has all kinds of certificates but fails to get employed. One day, he ends up in a coma due to the mistake of the “Danger Management Team” and starts to work with them.
Rowoon will not only create sympathy with the aspect of long-term job seekers and new contract workers who have made mistakes but also provide empathy and comfort by saving those who want to die. He already showcased his solid acting skills and ability to bring a character to life through his previous dramas such as “Extraordinary You” and “She Would Never Know.”
The drama’s producers remarked, “We thought Rowoon was perfect for the role of Choi Joon Woong. Through ‘Tomorrow,’ we believe he will be able to show his new charms and deep acting skills. It is expected that the meeting between rising actor Rowoon and the trusted production team will create explosive synergy, so please look forward to it and show it a lot of interest.”
“Tomorrow” will consist of 16 episodes and is slated to premiere in the first half of 2022.
