Ahn Hyo Seop, Kim Sejeong, Kim Min Kyu, Seol In Ah, And More Impress With Chemistry At 1st Script Reading For Upcoming Drama
SBS has released photos from the script reading for “A Business Proposal”!
Based on a web novel that was adapted into a webtoon, “A Business Proposal” is a romantic comedy about an office employee who goes on a blind date with her company’s CEO in place of a friend while hiding her identity.
Last summer, cast members Ahn Hyo Seop, Kim Sejeong, Kim Min Kyu, Seol In Ah, Lee Deok Hwa, Kim Kwang Kyu, Jung Young Joo, Kim Hyun Sook, Song Won Seok, VICTON’s Byungchan, and more gathered for the first time at the drama’s first script reading.
As soon as the reading began, it’s said that each cast member perfectly immersed into their individual roles and were as passionate as they would be if they were filming on set. Ahn Hyo Seop and Kim Sejeong also impressed with their chemistry after just meeting for the first time.
Ahn Hyo Seop will star as Kang Tae Mu, a perfect third generation chaebol. Although he’s often cold and grumpy, Kang Tae Mu has an unpredictable side to him that makes hearts flutter. Kim Sejeong stars opposite Ahn Hyo Seop as Shin Ha Ri, a regular office worker who hides her true energetic self in order to transform into a charismatic femme fatale for her blind date.
Kim Min Kyu will play chief secretary Cha Sung Hoon, who grew up like brothers with Kang Tae Mu. Seol In Ah portrays Shin Ha Ri’s best friend Jin Young Seo, who is also the only child of Marine Group’s chairman.
Lee Deok Hwa plays Kang Da Goo, the president of food company K-FRESH and Kang Tae Mu’s grandfather. While he’s strict and serious, Kang Da Goo also has a lot of affection. K-FRESH will become an important part of the drama and many of the company’s employees will bring laughs and relatable stories to the plot.
Kim Hyun Sook will play manager Yeo Eui Joo, who is Shin Ha Ri’s boss. Shin Ha Ri’s father Shin Joong Hae will be played by Kim Kwang Kyu, while her mother Han Mi Mo will be played by Jung Young Joo. Her younger brother Shin Ha Min will be played by VICTON’s Byungchan. Song Won Seok will also appear as the handsome chef Lee Min Woo, who is also close friends with Shin Ha Ri.
The producers of “A Business Proposal” shared, “It was a script reading where everyone confirmed the chemistry and synergy they have with one another. Each actor showcased their charms and personalities at the right moments and created a great atmosphere. ‘A Business Proposal’ is an office romantic comedy that you will comfortably be able to enjoy.
