Seolhyun And Im Siwan Praise Each Other While Sharing Their Excitement For “Summer Strike”
Based on a popular webtoon of the same name, “Summer Strike” is a heartwarming romance drama about people who decide to quit their current lifestyles in the busy city and move to a small town to do nothing, where they’re ultimately able to find themselves. Im Siwan plays Ahn Dae Bum, who is living a life full of unanswered questions as he works as a librarian in a small seaside village named Angok. Seolhyun takes on the role of Lee Yeo Reum, who becomes a full-time employee at the company she has been working at for five years but eventually declares a strike on her own life, quits her job, and just takes one backpack to Angok, where she lives in an empty billiards room.

Im Siwan said, “Even before filming, I had a very good impression of her as many of my acting peers and producers who worked with Seolhyun in the past praised her a lot. In fact, when we started to work together, I could feel that she is person who is always bright and pure.”
The new stills that were released along with the actors’ remarks also drew attention.
