Cast of 365: A Fate-defying Year gather for script reading
MBC’s upcoming 365: A Fate-defying Year held its first script read recently. This drama is about the fierce game of survival that unfolds when ten people get the opportunity to go one year into the past to change their lives.
Lee Jun-hyuk (The Lies Within) and Nam Ji-hyun (100 Days My Prince) are set to star as a seven-year veteran detective and popular webtoon artist respectively. Lee Jun-hyuk’s character sometimes comes off as a lazeabout, but he has a keen eye that can recognize anyone he has ever met, and has good detective instincts. He has a strong family-like loyalty toward his team, Violent Crimes Unit 1.
Meanwhile, Nam Ji-hyun’s character is a perfectionist and obsessive workaholic. Due to her skill and efforts, her serial web comic “Hidden Killer” has never lost its #1 ranking in the three years it’s been running.
Kim Ji-soo (Fox Bride Star, Hwayugi) plays a mysterious character who holds the key to changing the lives of the ten people who will be featured in the drama’s story. Kim Ji-soo’s background and motive are unclear and shrouded in secrecy.
Also at the script read was Yang Dong-geun (My Fellow Citizens, Borg Mom) who plays a delinquent ex-convict. His gambling addiction and past as the minion of an evil loan shark makes him the center of suspicion in any scheme.
Directed by Lucky Romance PD Kim Kyung-hee’s and Air City writer Lee Seo-yoon and writer Lee Soo-kyung, 365: A Fate-defying Year is slated to air on MBC in the first half of 2020.
