Character stills from A Day Found by Chance with Lee Na-eun, Kim Ro-woon, Lee Jae-wook,
More stills have been released for MBC’s upcoming A Day Found by Chance featuring the rest of the main cast: April’s Lee Na-eun, SF9’s Kim Ro-woon (Fox Bride Star), and Lee Jae-wook (Search Query: WWW).
The story of A Day Found by Chance is centered around the character of Eun Dan-oh, played by Kim Hye-yoon (SKY Castle). She thought she was living just a regular life, but, as it turned out, she wasn’t even real. Her whole life was part of a comic book story and she was just one character in it. Finding out this new truth, she decides to take her life into her own hands, refusing to follow the life plan that’s been set out for her, and sets off to find the true love of her choosing.
In this story within a story, Lee Na-eun plays the role of Yeo Joo-da. She comes from a struggling family and has worked in all sorts of part-time jobs. Although she attends school with many privileged students, she doesn’t let it affect her spirits. She has a sweet and sunny personality, always staying positive, and is a Candy-like character which is fitting because she is the “main character” in the comic book. In following, and a big part of the comic book’s story line, is the love triangle in which she is caught in-between two boys fighting for her affections (paralleling Boys Over Flowers and the like). However, when Eun Dan-oh develops self-awareness, her life is thrown off course as well.
Lee Jae-wook plays Baek Kyung, Eun Dan-oh’s fiancé, whom Dan-oh has been crushing on for 10 years. The character is a typical “bad boy”, appearing to be cold and uninterested. However, he is hiding a painful past and is not unaffected by Dan-oh’s presence in his life. As Dan-oh’s life takes a turn, he gets caught in the whirlwind with her, and their relationship as well as his feelings for her become more complicated.
The character Kim Ro-woon plays is “Number 13”, a nameless extra in the comic book’s story. Called “Number 13” because he’s the 13th person on the class attendance list, he lived a background existence until he met Eun Dan-oh and fell in love. With her help, he also becomes self-aware about his identity, and starts to grow and change as a character and person.
Directing for the drama is PD Kim Sang-hyub (The King Loves); and writers, In Ji-hye and Song Ha-young, will be working on the scripts together.
I laughed when I saw Lee Jae-wook’s photos because he seems to be channeling his past role within a role on Search Query: WWW. But I know I’m not alone when I say that I loved him in that drama and I’m excited to see him in another show so soon. Hopefully September comes fasts!
