Watch: 2PM's Taecyeon, Won Ji An, And More Describe Their Roles In Vampire Romance Drama At 1st Script Reading

KBS has dropped a look at the first script reading for 2PM’s Taecyeon and Won Ji An’s upcoming vampire drama!

“My Heart Is Beating” (literal title) is KBS2’s new fantasy romance drama in which half-human and half-vampire Seon Woo Hyul (Taecyeon), who was unable to become human due to a one day difference amidst 100 years, finds true warmth after starting to live together with Joo In Hae (Won Ji An), a woman who has no humane side.

Present at the script reading were director Lee Hyun Suk, writers Kim Ha Na and Jung Seung Joo, as well as cast members 2PM’s Taecyeon, Won Ji An, Park Kang Hyun, Yoon So Hee, Yoon Byung Hee, Go Kyu Pil, Kim In Kwon, Seung Yoo, Baek Seo Hoo, Baek Hyun Joo, Jung Young Ki, Ham Tae In, and more.

Taecyeon will star as half-human and half-vampire Seon Woo Hyul, a trendsetter who likes to be the first person to try new things for the first time. He is an oddball willing to go to extremes to become a human because he desperately wants to experience heart-fluttering love.

In the making-of video from the script reading, Taecyeon explains, “While living a very long time among humans, I think he has the charm of knowing how not to stand out, but still standing out. Overall, he’s a warm character. While he’s warm-hearted, his heart does not beat, so he’s a character who tries to become human because he wants his heart to beat.”

Won Ji An will take on the role of Joo In Hae, a part-time school nurse and the owner of a guest house. Having grown up in difficult circumstances, Joo In Hae lives in survival mode and becomes known for her cold-bloodedness. As she starts to live together with Seon Woo Hyul, she grows into a person with a warm heart and humaneness.

The actress shared of her character, “While living in reality, In Hae is someone who is quite indigent and very lonely. In the midst of living her difficult life, she meets Woo Hyul and a swift transformation occurs.”

Park Kang Hyun plays Shin Do Shik, who he describes as “a businessman who achieves great success through real estate.” He continues, “Despite succeeding at a young age, he lives a worrisome life. While living, we are always making choices, but Do Shik’s choices are between love and his life. Since he is a character who will always be in conflict between these two, he’s a fun character.”

Yoon So Hee takes the role of Na Hye Won, a real estate investor who was born into a wealthy family. She also resembles Hae Sun, who is Seon Woo Hyul’s first love. She explains, “As she’s grown up freely from a young age, she’s a real estate investor who’s grown without lacking anything. [The director] said that she has the most money in the drama and is more powerful than a vampire, so she has an unrealistic charm that’s a bit different from Woo Hyul.”

Following the reading, Taecyeon shares, “‘My Heart is Beating’ is a drama that makes you think about what it is that makes your heart beat and makes you run passionately.” Won Ji An adds, “There are vampires and the drama has elements of fantasy so I hope you have a heart-fluttering time while watching the drama.”
