MONSTA X’s Hyungwon, Lee Shin Young, And More Confirmed To Join EXO’s Xiumin In Upcoming Drama
On September 27, production company The Great Show revealed that Lee Shin Young, Xiumin, MONSTA X’s Hyungwon, Choi Jung Woon, Choi Won Myeong, Lee Sae On, and Kim Shana will be starring in the upcoming drama.
“Sajangdol Mart” tells the story of what unfolds after the idol group Thunder Boys disbands due to an unexpected incident and takes over a failing supermarket.
Lee Shin Young plays Thunder Boys’ leader Choi Ho Rang who somehow becomes the supermarket owner. Choi Ho Rang has a curt personality, but he is an honest figure who takes care of his members more than anyone else. He begins his business after acquiring Boram Mart instead of receiving pay for his advertisement.
Xiumin will play Thunder Boys’ main dancer and Boram Mart’s cashier Shin Tae Ho who is very thorough when it comes to calculating money. Since he grew up without lacking anything, Shin Tae Ho is self-centered, but he is also a very thoughtful character.
Hyungwon will take on the role of rapper Jo Yi Joon who cannot hold back his natural talent. At Boram Mart, he will be in charge of the seafood section. Furthermore, Choi Jung Woon will be playing Boram Mart’s influential part-timer Oh Ye Rim, Choi Won Myeong will play Thunder Boys’ vocalist Eun Young Min who is in charge of Boram Mart’s fresh meat section, and former “Produce 101 Season 2” contestant Lee Sae On will play Thunder Boys’ youngest member Yoon Sang Woo. Last but not least, Kim Shana will play Ji Na who is a member of the most popular girl group Chain Girls.
“Sajangdol Mart” will air in 2023, and the broadcast schedule has yet to be determined. Stay tuned for more updates!
