Han Bo-reum tries to pwn boss Sung Hoon in Level Up
New promo stills and a poster have been released for the latest office rom-com drama on the horizon—Level Up, featuring Sung Hoon (Can You Hear Me 2) and Han Bo-reum (Memories of the Alhambra). It’s a drama centering around the story of a failing gaming company. Sung Hoon’s character is a cold, logical restructuring expert who comes to help save the company from bankruptcy, and Han Bo-reum’s character is a passionate gaming fanatic who works with Sung Hoon to create one last game that may save the company.
The poster above shows Han Bo-reum grabbing Sung Hoon’s lapels aggressively, almost as if fighting with him. The copy reads: “The strongest boss appears for a gaming otaku.” The new stills released show a competition unfolding between Sung Hoon and Han Bo-reum, with both of them having intense looks of concentration and holding gaming controllers, as their co-workers cheer them on in the background.
It looks like Level Up is being set up as a classic opposites-attract rom-com, and that might be a welcome fluffy addition to this summer’s lineup of dramas. Some members of the supporting cast include Danny Ahn (Big Issue), Kang Byul (Always Spring), and Baro (Bad Detective); Danny Ahn and Baro can be seen in the still below.
MBN’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama Level Up, directed by Kim Sang-woo and written by Kim Dong-kyu, will begin airing on July 10.
