Kwon Soo Hyun Shares What Drew Him To “Café Minamdang,” Details About His Character, And More
Kwon Soo Hyun talked about his upcoming drama “Café Minamdang” and his character!
Based on the popular web novel of the same name, “Café Minamdang” is a comedy-mystery starring Seo In Guk as Nam Han Joon, a fraudulent male shaman who used to be a profiler. Oh Yeon Seo stars as Han Jae Hee, a detective in the violent crimes unit who is passionate about justice.
Kwon Soo Hyun portrays the skillful and sharp prosecutor Cha Do Won of the Western District Prosecutor’s Office. He’s polite and kind to everyone, but he also has the ability to make people freeze with his intense charisma and cold smile. Cha Do Won puts up an iron wall around him, but life takes an unexpected turn when he gets entangled up with the unpredictable people of Café Minamdang and Han Jae Hee.
Kwon Soo Hyun shared what drew him to the drama, saying, “I thought it was a perfect drama for this era when everyone has become tired for different reasons. The things that were most attractive to me were the quick plot developments and comedy points that give us room to breathe during our tough lives. Café Minamdang is full of stories that are light but not entirely light.”
He also discussed his character Cha Do Won, saying, “He is a cool-headed but clumsy character. He is a cute character who is far from the heavy image of a prosecutor. I tried to show a new side, like clumsiness, that is different from a calm and serious prosecutor.”
He continued, “Cha Do Won is also like a benefactor who always follows Han Jae Hee wherever she is and helps her. I think he goes to the police station more than the prosecutor’s office.”
Kwon Soo Hyun described “Café Minamdang” as a comma, explaining, “‘I think ‘Café Minamdang’ is a comma-like drama that can give you a break in these difficult times. I hope many people can breathe and rest together.”
“Café Minamdang” will premiere following the conclusion of “Bloody Heart” on June 27 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
