Thumbs-up for Strongest Deliveryman’s first script read
The first script read for KBS’s “hot-blooded youth drama” Strongest Deliveryman was held recently, and photos of the gathering have been released. This drama is about how twentysomethings with nothing more than the empty delivery bags on their backs begin to carve their way in the world.
Starring Go Kyung-pyo (Chicago Typewriter) and Chae Soo-bin (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People), it’ll tell the coming-of-age story about how these deliverymen (and women) engage in intense competition to come on top in their neighborhood businesses. Go Kyung-pyo’s character is a delivery boy of legend, whose veteran skills are unmatched due to his five years of experience. He only has one rule: Don’t work in one place for more than two months. The drama will tell the story of how he goes from a street delivery boy to the CEO of his own company.
Similarly, Chae Soo-bin is also in the delivery business, working hard in order to make as much money as she can. Despite being born with a “dirt spoon” (dirt-poor), she’s cheerful, knowing how to pick herself back up, and how to look forward, not back. Her character is a kickass heroine, literally, having trained fifteen years in the art of hapkido. In some of the stills below, the actress Chae Soo-bin looks to be hard at work practicing her martial arts skills.
Previously, Jang Mi-kwan and Lee Yeol-eum had been announced as the second leads, but there’s been a changeup. Now, Kim Sun-ho (Chief Kim) and Go Won-hee (The Time I’ve Loved You) will be taking on their roles. Kim Sun-ho plays a wealthy heir who always worries about the possibility of Murphy’s law and emergency situations playing out because he was abandoned once. On the other hand, Go Won-hee plays an immature but bright woman born with a silver spoon in her mouth who yearns for independence.
Friday-Saturday drama Strongest Deliveryman will follow The Best Hit and begin on KBS from July 28.
