Shin Se-kyung and Kim Rae-won up for romance drama Black Knight
Right on the heels of Bride of the Water God 2017, Shin Se-kyung may jump into another supernatural romance drama. Early on, Kim Rae-won’s (Doctors) name was attached to the project Black Knight, and if he does officially confirm, it’ll be his first foray into the genre.
Black Knight is about an innocent and pure man who takes on a dangerous fate for the woman he loves. Kim Rae-won is up for the role of the main character, who is a young successful businessman. He had a rough childhood, so he reached emotional and physical maturity at a young age. Despite being a pure romantic, he is scarily impassive at times, though he can also be gentlemanly and humorous. He went to high school in the United States, majored in physics, and graduated medical school before becoming an entrepreneur.
If Shin Se-kyung confirms, she’ll play a travel agent who works in the hotel reservations department but has never actually traveled abroad. She supports her maternal spinster aunt, but they’re extremely poor. In order to survive, she’s adopted a cheerful and optimistic attitude, but she feels a lonely weariness inside. I’m not quite sure where the supernatural aspect comes in, but earlier reports stated that their love story would span centuries.
It’ll be reunions all around if they both confirm. Shin Se-kyung had a minor role in one of Kim Rae-won’s early hits, the cute romance movie My Little Bride, where she played the best friend of the heroine, Moon Geun-young. In addition, Shin Se-kyung has worked with the writer for the project, Kim In-young, in the 2013 melodrama When a Man Loves. That drama was a hot mess, so that definitely decreases my enthusiasm for this upcoming drama. But with the Kim Rae-won charm, who knows? Maybe Black Knight will be the hit of the winter.
KBS’s Wednesday-Thursday drama Black Knight is set to premiere in December.
