Nation-toppling stakes in Go Soo’s Money Game
Promos for tvN’s Money Game have come out, featuring Go Soo (Heart Surgeons), Shim Eun-kyung (The Princess and the Matchmaker, Cantabile Tomorrow), and Lee Sung-min (Misaeng, Memory). This drama is about a breathtakingly thrilling fight to prevent the collapse of the Korean economy in the largest financial scandal to ever hit the peninsula.
The cool noir-type poster above says: “A dangerous game that will decide the fate of the nation begins.” Front-and-center is Go Soo, who plays an economics bureau worker and it seems that economics is in his blood as his father is renowned as the greatest economic mind in Korea. Having always lived in his father’s shadow, Go Soo wants to prove to both himself and his family that he can succeed on his own.
Lee Sung-min plays his boss, a man who will go to any lengths to make his ambitions a reality. Finally, Shim Eun-kyung plays a new employee who has gotten where she is through hard work and grit despite her “dirt spoon” background (in other words, the opposite of a silver spoon). She has the righteous passion and fervor of someone who’s yet to be jaded by time or experience.
tvN’s new Wednesday-Thursday drama Money Game, directed by Kim Sang-ho (Spring Turns to Spring, Hwajung) and written by Lee Young-mi, will begin airing on January 15.
