Kim Dong Hwi Resorts To Dangerous Means To Stay In Medical School In New Thriller Drama “The Deal”
wavve’s upcoming drama “The Deal” has shared a new glimpse of Kim Dong Hwi in his starring role!
Based on the award-winning webtoon of the same name, “The Deal” tells the story of three former high school classmates in their twenties who get together for drinks for the first time in a long while. However, things take an unexpected turn when two of them impulsively decide to kidnap the other, and the ensuing complications lead all three of them down a dark and turbulent path.
Yoo Seung Ho will star as Lee Joon Sung, a former rising soccer star who is just deciding to get his life back together after losing his way, while Yoo Su Bin will play kidnapping victim Park Min Woo, who is the only son of a wealthy family.
Kim Dong Hwi will star in the drama as medical student Song Jae Hyo, who once thought that his future would be smooth sailing and free of bumps in the road. However, his once stable life falls into danger of collapsing when Song Jae Hyo unexpectedly finds himself at risk of being expelled.
In a desperate attempt to stay in school, Song Jae Hyo makes a brash decision: he hatches a scheme to kidnap Park Min Woo and hold him for a hefty ransom.
“Jae Hyo is the character who marks the start of this kidnapping plot,” commented Kim Dong Hwi. “He started the kidnapping plot solely to receive money, but when he goes too far later on, it snowballs out of his control. I think it’d be good to focus on this aspect while watching the drama.”
Meanwhile, director Lee Jung Gon spoke highly of Kim Dong Hwi and his experience working with the actor on set. “We exchange ideas back and forth a lot on set,” shared the director. “He’s an actor who, if I throw an idea his way, will execute it skillfully and with sophistication.”
“The Deal” will premiere on October 6.
