There’s a new webtoon adaptation in the works, and tvN’s Cheap Cheollima Mart has lined up a pretty impressive cast for its workplace comedy. The latest addition is Momoland’s Yeon-woo, who will be making her drama debut in this webtoon adaptation. She will be joining Lee Dong-hwi (Radiant Office), Kim Byung-chul (Doctor Prisoner), Park Ho-san (Bad Detective), Lee Soon-jae (Legal High), and Jung Hye-sung (Mysterious Il-seung).
The drama will take place at the titular Cheollima Mart, a run-down store that is unofficially known as the company’s internal land of exile. The market is a failing enterprise, and will become the focus of both efforts to revive it by an elite manager and efforts to destroy it by the “human bulldozer” company CEO. Aw, the underdog fighting against the powers that be is a dynamic that will always get me right in the feels.
Yeon-woo will be playing Park Ho-san’s daughter in the show, and joins the Cheollima Mart staff because she is infatuated with Lee Dong-hwi’s character, the store manager. She’ll have some competition in the form of Jung Hye-sung, in what sounds like a catty love triangle. Directing is Baek Seung-ryong, who has experience in both variety and dramas, like SNL Korea and Rude Miss Young-ae, and Kim Sol-ji will be adapting the webtoon for the small screen.
Cheap Cheollima Mart will premiere on tvN in September.
