Lee Sang Yeob And Kim So Hye Confirmed To Star In New Drama
On October 17, KBS2’s upcoming drama “Pure Boxer” (literal title) announced that Lee Sang Yeob and Kim So Hye are confirmed to star in the drama as leads.
“Pure Boxer” is a sports drama based on the novel “Pure Boxer Lee Kwon Sook” written by Choo Jong Nam, the winner of the second Kyobo Bookstore Story Contest. It is a story about genius boxer Lee Kwon Sook and a cold-blooded agent who doesn’t feel guilty of match-fixing for money and the success of his athletes.
Lee Sang Yeob will take on the role of Kim Tae Young, an S&P Sports agent who coaxes talented athletes and retires them in a short period of time after taking the lion’s share. Kim Tae Young approaches Lee Kwon Sook, who disappeared three years ago for top pitcher Kim Hee Won.
Kim So Hye will play Lee Kwon Sook, a genius boxer who emerged as a boxing star at the age of 17. Lee Kwon Sook, who disappeared right before achieving the Grand Slam, was living a new life but when she meets the evil agent Kim Tae Young, she faces a new turning point.
“Pure Boxer” is expected to portray the story of maturing youths, who struggle between their given talents and what they really want to do, as well as the lives of people who work in the sports industry in an interesting and honest way.
“Pure Boxer” will start filming soon and is scheduled to premiere in the first half of 2023. Stay tuned!
