Seo In Guk, Oh Yeon Seo, Kwak Si Yang, Kang Mina, And More Gather At Script Reading For Upcoming KBS Drama
KBS has released photos from the first script reading for “Minamdang” (romanized title)!
Based on the popular web novel of the same name, “Minamdang” is a comedy-mystery starring Seo In Guk as a fraudulent male shaman who used to be a profiler. Oh Yeon Seo stars as a detective in the violent crimes unit who is passionate about justice.
In addition to director Go Jae Hyun and writer Park Hye Jin, cast members at the reading included Seo In Guk, Oh Yeon Seo, Kwak Si Yang, Kwon Soo Hyun, Kang Mina, Jung Eun Pyo, Jung Man Sik, Hwang Woo Seul Hye, Jung Ha Joon, and Baek Seo Hoo.
As soon as the reading began, all the actors immediately immersed into their characters and showed off their impressive synchronization.
As Nam Han Joon, a former profiler and current shaman, Seo In Guk was able to moderate his gaze, voice tone, and breathing to perfectly portray his character. With his clever comments, he was able to make everyone laugh and bring energy to the atmosphere. Transforming into her role as detective Han Jae Hee, Oh Yeon Soo kept an incredible pace to showcase her character’s easygoing and refreshing charms.
Kwak Si Yang plays Gong Soo Chul, a barista at Minamdang. While he initially appears cold, Gong Soo Chul is a softie who speaks in dialect and Kwak Si Yang was able to make everyone laugh with his character’s surprising charms. Kang Mina plays Nam Han Joon’s younger sister Nam Hye Joon and the two showed off their incredibly realistic sibling banter. Nam Hye Joon is free-spirited and energetic with a hidden brainiac side. Kwon Soo Hyun portrayed detective Cha Do Won’s mysterious image, who is the perfect combination of cold and warm.
Jung Eun Pyo plays down-to-earth police chief Kim Chul Geun, while Hwang Woo Seul Hye takes on the role of Lee Min Kyung, a “bulldozer-like” VVIP customer of Minamdang. Baek Seo Hoo plays the handsome and lovable Jonathan whose personality is quite bizarre. Jung Man Sik and Jung Ha Joon play detectives who work alongside Han Jae Hee in the violent crimes unit.
“Minamdang” is set to premiere this June.
