Sung Hoon and Han Bo-reum to star in MBN rom-com Level Up
Sung Hoon (Can You Hear My Heart 2) and Han Bo-reum (Memories of the Alhambra) have confirmed they will be playing the lead roles in the upcoming MBN drama Level Up.
The rom-com will follow a restructuring specialist, played be Sung Hoon, as he joins a struggling game company and works to save it. He joins forces with Han Bo-reum, the game company’s CEO, who’s both a hardcore gamer and a talented game developer. She has a burning passion for gaming, but while Han Bo-reum runs hot, Sung Hoon runs very cold. It’s inevitable that they would butt heads and bicker like crazy, but there’s an attraction that eventually blooms.
Sung Hoon’s character is named Ahn Dante (shout out to the classical music fans among us!) and his career has only seen highs. He’s a star at his firm with a 100% success rate, which is how he comes to take the reins of said struggling game company. He’s chic but aloof and doesn’t wear his heart on his sleeve.
Han Bo-reum will play Shin Yeon-hwa, the founder and hardcore gamer who enlists Sung Hoon to help save her company. She begins to create a new game in an effort to save the company–as well as to satisfy Sung Hoon.
This will be the first lead role of Han Bo-reum’s career. The only role I’ve seen her in was Memories of the Alhambra and she was flat-out vile, so I’m looking forward to seeing her as a cool and lovable character.
PD Kim Sang-woo and writer Kim Dong-kyu are attached to the project. Level Up will premiere on July 10 in the Wednesday-Thursday slot on MBN.
