Lee Kwang Soo, AOA’s Seolhyun, And Jin Hee Kyung Confirmed To Star In New Drama
tvN’s upcoming drama “Murderer’s Shopping List” (literal translation) has finalized its starring cast!
Based on the novel of the same name by Kang Ji Young, “Murderer’s Shopping List” is a comedy-mystery thriller about an ordinary neighborhood on the outskirts of Seoul. When a mysterious body is found in the vicinity of an apartment building, a supermarket receipt becomes a key piece of evidence that kicks off an entertaining hunt for the killer.
Lee Kwang Soo will star in the drama as Ahn Dae Sung, the son of supermarket owner Jung Myung Sook (to be played by Jin Hee Kyung). Although he was once a genius with impressive memorization skills, his life takes a turn for the worse due to an incident that takes place at his mom’s market when he is 10 years old.
Despite his extraordinary brain and powers of perception, Ahn Dae Sung is currently going through a rough patch after having failed the examination to become a public service official for three years in a row. In fact, his outstanding memory only seems to be a hindrance in his life, clogging up all the space in his brain with tons of useless information.
AOA’s Seolhyun will star in the drama as Ahn Dae Sung’s girlfriend Do Ah Hee, a passionate police officer who has only had eyes for him from a very young age. When a body is discovered near an apartment building, Do Ah Hee steps up to catch the culprit herself.
Finally, Jin Hee Kyung will star as Jung Myung Sook, a supermarket owner and Ahn Dae Sung’s fearless mother. Jung Myung Sook has a lot of love for both her husband, who is incompetent but handsome, and her son, who is foolish but endearing. Due to her hard work and business savvy, she manages to grow her small neighborhood store into a large supermarket that takes up an entire two-story building.
The producers of “Murderer’s Shopping List” remarked, “Now that actors Lee Kwang Soo, Kim Seolhyun, and Jin Hee Kyung have been cast as our three leads, we feel more secure and at ease than ever. Our super(market) heroes, the likes of whom have never been seen before, will deliver both joyful laughs and overwhelming suspense at the same time. Please look forward to it.”
“Murderer’s Shopping List” is currently slated to air in the first half of 2022.
