Im Seul-ong and Kim Seul-gi headline manhwa adaptation

Im Seul-ong (Mandate of Heaven) and Kim Seul-gi (Flower Boy Next Door) are headlining a new project together, and it’s an adaptation of a popular webtoon called Infinite Power.

On the bright side, I like both actors—he has really stepped it up as an idol-turned-actor and was warm and winning in Mandate of Heaven, and she has quickly made a name for herself as a hilarious young talent after Saturday Night Live Korea put her on the map. On the downside: It’s only going to be an “SNS drama,” which means it’ll be a shorter format distributed online. It has completed filming and will be released in six episodes.

The story of Infinite Power centers around a cast of young adults struggling to make it in the world. The original manhwa, written by Joo Ho-min and put out by Naver, features a cast of characters who set their sights on entering a large corporation—highly competitive and prestigious—and work to beef up their résumés, and resonated with its twenty- and thirtysomething readership. Not a surprise, given today’s tough job market, extreme competitiveness in the workplace, and general insecurity about the economy and the future. You’d think it might hit a little TOO close to home for many, but maybe it’s entertaining when it happens to someone else?

Producing the series is Apollo Pictures, which produced 2011’s SBS drama Sign; it is directed by PD Park Chan-yool of Insoon Is Pretty and Fermentation Family, and written by Tamra the Island’s Lee Jae-yoon.

The SNS drama will be launched in early November via social media outlets online, with two episodes released per week.

I feel so honored to be the first
comment. All of my hardwork and
dedication has paid off. Getting the
top comment has been a dream of
mine for many years, and i would like
to thank those who have helped me
along the way. First and foremost i
would like to thank god for giving me
this opportunity. Next i would like to
thank my parents. I want to thank my
cat Belle, for being really fat and
always there for me. I would also like
to thank my pet tadpole for surviving
against all odds for one week. Next i
would like to thank the squirrel that
lives in my backyard for climbing
trees because that gives me
inspiration that i need to get through
the day. I also want to thank Max
Rainer for giving me someone to beat
in Mario Party. This is a special
moment in my life and i would like to
thank any of my unmentioned friends
and family that have helped me along
the way. This moment will be a
moment that i will never forget. I just
remembered a few other people i
would like to thank; facebook, the fish
i caught in the third grade, my light
in my room bc i wouldn't be able to
see the keyboard without it, the
internet for letting me go on
facebook, my house because without
it i would be homeless, and last but
not the least i would like to thank all
the people out there that actually
took time out of their day to read
this. I can not state how much of a
big deal to me this is. I have been
trying to be the first comment on a
post for years, but that has not been
possible until this amazing day.
Hopefully my good luck will continue,
but this is undoubtedly a rare
occasion If you ask me how i did this,
i would say , you can achieve
anything you set your mind on. To all
the kids out there reading this, i
would like to tell them to follow their
dreams. Being the top comment is
amazing, thank you everyone :-)

Hello Lilly,
And yet I wonder if the drama will touch on the political aspect, regarding the lack of good jobs.

maybe no more than some old comedies made back during Great Depression

but it has to be way ahead of current US works of fantasy land where everyone is wealthy, most have an IQ of 60, but life is great, that are still churned out non-stop

I see...
This, "US works of fantasy land where everyone is wealthy, most have an IQ of 60, but life is great, that are still churned out non-stop." Do you think this is what is happening?

It only needed the geriatric Kardashians advertising to the world that they made a sex tape and six thousand pictures of Miley Cyrus across US news with her tongue hanging out like an overworked bloodhound to confirm the 60 IQ target audience part

ISO has really stepped up since his PT days. It is nice to see how he has grown as a person and as an actor. I remember how he was, in the few ep. of WGM, when Jo kwon was participating...

Yeah, definitely one of the rare idol-turned-actor that stepped it up. I like both (Kim Seul-gi is hilarious and adorable) so I'm glad to see them have an opportunity to act again. Hopefully it'll give them another platform to expand into bigger roles and productions!

Hello pabo ceo reom, (should I start singing that song :-)? LOL and wink, wink. Let's see if you remember why I asked :-), and interestingly, ISO has something to do with your screen name here :-), something along the lines of 6 degrees [or less] of separation).

Good to see you again :-). I just love how you sometimes respond to my posts, as if to remind me that you are still around :-). It always brings a smile to my face, just so you know. How are you? Well, I hope.

This, "Hopefully it’ll give them another platform to expand into bigger roles and productions!", I totally agree with. And did you ever see ISO in this? I love the song, and I love how they are with each other here (meaning cute). Enjoy! (If you have never seen this):

OMG this director and writer are LOVE. And the cast looks good too. I totally fell for Kim Seul-gi in FBND.

Too bad it's such a short drama. The subject matter sounds really interesting.

Anyone know if the original webtoon is available anywhere?

I would have never recognized the actress from these pictures if they didn't mention 'FBND'. That's, I guess, because her panda eyes are gone. :)

the plot is sooo ( a bit too) close to home... T.T
but i really like the two leads. ISO is the one idol that I can say has definite acting chops. I liked him in Mandate of Heaven, although I didn't finish the drama, and I really like Kim seul gi in Flower boys next door and some bits of SNL Korea I've watched.
