Choi Daniel Confirmed Alongside Kim Sejeong And Nam Yoon Su For Remake Of “Sleepeeer Hit!”
“Today’s Webtoon” is a Korean remake of the popular 2016 Japanese drama “Sleepeeer Hit!” The drama will tell the story of On Ma Eum, a former judo athlete who joins the webtoon editorial department as a new employee and struggles in order to mature into a true webtoon editor amidst South Korea’s competitive webtoon industry.
Kim Sejeong will be playing the role of rookie contract employee On Ma Eum who enters the webtoon editorial department after beating all odds. Nam Yoon Su will star as Goo Joon Young who grows to be more like On Ma Eum by sincerely putting his heart and soul into everything after reflecting back on himself.
Choi Daniel will be taking on the role of Seok Ji Hyung, an unpredictable deputy editor with an unreadable poker face who becomes a dependable mentor for On Ma Eum. Although he can be brutally honest, Seok Ji Hyung is also a supportive editor who takes good care of his younger colleagues and the webtoon writers he works with. Nevertheless, outside of work, he shows a more clumsy side with his various charms and silly jokes.
“Today’s Webtoon” will be Choi Daniel’s first drama in four years since he last graced the small screen in 2018 with “The Ghost Detective.”
The upcoming drama will premiere sometime in the second half of the year.
