Kwon Yul in talks to join Bring It On, Ghost
We’ve got another possible casting addition to tvN’s supernatural horror-comedy drama Bring It On, Ghost, the webtoon adaptation about a ghost and an exorcist becoming roommates. The series has confirmed Kim So-hyun (Who Are You—School 2015) to headline, and Ok Taecyeon (Assembly) is considering the lead role opposite her. I appreciate that you guys did your best to shield me from the news; it was the most thoughtful reason anyone’s ever had for cutting off my internet access. But until Taec is 100% confirmed beyond a shadow of a doubt, I’m just going to keep hope alive.
In any case, I’m happy about the drama courting Kwon Yul (One More Happy Ending) to play a ghost-seer in the drama. If he signs on, it’ll be a reunion with PD Park Jun-hwa of Let’s Eat 2, which is the drama that made me really like him.
Bring It On, Ghost is about a young man (surely no longer a teenager, if they’re going to cast Taecyeon?) who can see and touch ghosts, and takes on a side job as an exorcist by chasing spooks out of people’s homes. Kim So-hyun plays a schoolgirl ghost he faces off with, and she puts up such a good fight that he can’t get rid of her like the others, and she takes up residence in his house. All she ever did was study when she was alive, and she’ll discover a whole new side of life after death, including boys.
Kwon Yul is considering an offer to play a character who’s been able to see ghosts from a young age. It’s the reason why he was abandoned by his parents, though he did get adopted and grew up to become the youngest professor of psychiatry at a prestigious university hospital. He also owns a mortuary, which seems like the last place a ghost-seer would want to be. But maybe he’s not afraid of ghosts… maybe they’re afraid of him? Great, I just creeped myself out.
Bring It On, Ghost follows Oh Hae-young Again on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning in July.
