Yoon Kye Sang Confirmed To Star As A Kidnapper In New Black Comedy Drama
Yoon Kye Sang will be the lead of an upcoming novel-based drama!
On October 13, Yoon Kye Sang’s agency confirmed the actor will appear in “Day of Kidnapping” (literal translation).
“Day of Kidnapping” is a black comedy about a special collaboration between a sloppy kidnapper and an 11-year-old genius girl. Based on a novel of the same name, the drama will be directed by Park Yoo Young, who was behind “A Model Family,” “Love Alarm Season 2,” and “Kingdom Season 1,” and written by Kim Je Young who has previously worked on “Wonderful Nightmare,” “Insane,” and “Cheese in the Trap“.
Yoon Kye Sang will be playing Kim Myung Joon, a first-time kidnapper who kidnaps an 11-year-old girl to raise money for his daughter’s hospital fees. Due to an incident he accidentally gets himself involved in, Kim Myung Joon is suddenly hunted as a murder suspect. “Day of Kidnapping” will depict the special partnership between a kidnapper who is somewhat lacking and more weak-hearted than anyone else, and a genius girl, in their stupid, yet entertaining journey to find the truth.
On being cast in the drama, Yoon Kye Sang remarked, “I’m happy to be able to greet you with a new work, the plot [of the drama] is interesting, and I’m looking forward to [seeing] how the harmony between Myung Joon, a clumsy kidnapper, and Ro Hee, a genius girl, will be accepted by the viewers.” Lastly, he asked viewers to anticipate the drama as he said, “I’ll do my best, so please kindly wait for me.”
“Day of Kidnapping” is scheduled to air in 2023. Stay tuned for more updates!
