SF9’s Rowoon, Kim Hee Sun, Lee Soo Hyuk, And More Get Together At Script Reading For New Drama About Grim Reapers
“Tomorrow” is based on a webtoon of the same name and tells the story of Choi Joon Woong (Rowoon), who gets into an unfortunate accident while struggling to find a job. As a result, he crosses paths with grim reapers Goo Ryun (Kim Hee Sun) and Lim Ryoong Goo (Yoon Ji On), 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.
At the script reading, directors Kim Tae Yoon and Sung Chi Wook were joined by Kim Hee Sun, Rowoon, Lee Soo Hyuk, Yoon Ji On, and the rest of the main cast. Even though it was only their first reading, the cast showcased incredible synchronization with their roles, allowing the webtoon characters to truly come to life.
Kim Hee Sun will play the powerful grim reaper Goo Ryun, who is the Crisis Management Team leader at the spirit management headquarters of the afterlife monopoly called Joomadeung (phantasmagoria). Her role is to save the lives of people contemplating suicide. Rowoon accompanies her as Choi Joon Woong, a new contract employee on the Crisis Management Team. After a long job hunt, the accident-prone Choi Joon Woong finally achieves his dream of getting a job, but in the underworld.
Also on Goo Ryun’s Crisis Management team is Im Ryoong Goo, played by Yoon Ji On. The humorous and energetic Im Ryoong Goo always makes sure to clock out of work after exactly eight hours, keeping his work-life balance perfect. Lee Soo Hyuk plays Park Joong Gil, the team leader of the Guiding Management Team at Joomadeung. Park Joong Gil is cold, with a powerful dark aura, but he is the best at his job of guiding the deceased. As he believes firmly in adhering to rules, he is always clashing with Goo Ryun and the Crisis Management Team.
The “Tomorrow” producers commented, “From the first script reading, Kim Hee Sun, Rowoon, Lee Soo Hyuk, Yoon Ji On, and the remaining cast members exceeded expectations with their chemistry and immersion into their characters. More than anything, I think we’ll be able to share deep emotions and warm laughs through the grim reapers who try to save lives, as well as the journey of unpacking the stories of those who are contemplating death. Please look forward to it.”
MBC’s “Tomorrow” will air following the conclusion of “Tracer” in the first half of 2022.
