Choi Siwon and Uee to star in new MBC project

Casting has been confirmed for actors Uee (My Only One) and Choi Siwon (My Fellow Citizens) in a new MBC rom-com, called Augmented Bean Pod.

Choi Siwon stars in the drama as Min-joon, a character who enjoys virtual reality dating as a pastime and struggles with finding genuine love in real life. Enter Uee, playing the role of Ji-won, who meets Choi’s character through a virtual reality app. Naturally the two fall in love and, as their feelings grow, they try to navigate their relationship from the virtual platform into reality.

Directed by film director Oh Ki-hwan (Fashion King, The Art of Seduction), the drama is one of eight single-episode features in a sci-fi anthology series called the SF8 Project. In a collaboration between MBC, the Directors Guild of Korea, and Wavve (a streaming platform), each story will be produced by a different director. All stories will follow the same theme: imagining a future in which human society has become further entwined with advanced technology.

The director’s cut of Augmented Bean Pod and the SF8 series is set to be released in July, through Wavve, and the original standard version premieres on MBC in August.

Adding one more drama to the already long list of dramas to watch this year! Yayy for Choi Siwon!
Only watched Uee in You're Beautiful and thought she was a really good annoying second lead.

I like Choi Si-won as an actor-and especially as an actor in a comedy- because that is where his acting talent lies. Which is actually a real compliment- comedy is actually the hardest kind of acting.

It is a pity that we do not get to see more of him but he does, after all, have other talents and another career.

I will watch this one.

Yay for UEE!!! Siwon was okay in My Fellow Citizens. As long as his character is not like the one in Revolutionary Love, he's fine.

Siwon struggles with finding genuine love in real life? LOL.... the concept of SF8 seems nice, it allows more experimental stuff.

I thought so, but I don't think it will have the dark side.

Something more similar to Saint Juniper than to White Bear, I guess.
