First script read for fantasy rom-com drama Welcome
Seo Ji-hoon, L, Shin Ye-eun, Yoon Ye-joo, Kang Hoon
KBS’s Welcome has one of the more interesting premises I’ve heard in a long time. The premise involves a cat who transforms into a man and develops a relationship with a young woman who has a puppy-like personality. L (also known as Kim Myung-soo, Angel’s Last Mission: Love) will headline along with Shin Ye-eun (That Psychometric Guy).
The first script read for Welcome was held this past October, and stills have just been released. PD Ji Byung-hyun (Lovely, Horribly) gave his opening comments: “I believe that in love, even if there’s pain, it’s important to put in all your effort in that moment. I liked the script when I saw it because that part was highlighted. It also really showed the love and comfort that pets provide, which made me really want to take this project.”
L’s character turned into a human boy once when he was a kitten, but he quickly went back to his feline form, and has been a cat ever since then until he comes across Shin Ye-eun’s character. Shin Ye-eun plays a woman who has the bright energy, loving loyalty, and protective instincts of a dog. Seo Ji-hoon (Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency) rounds out the main trio, as a man who runs a family hardware store. He has the a friendly vibe that makes neighbors think of him as family, but a coldness to him as well.
Additionally, the supporting cast members were at the script read. Kang Hoon (Rookie Historian Goo Hae-Ryung) plays the only dog-like friend in Shin Ye-eun’s proximity, as her world is filled with more cat-like individuals. The character that Yoon Ye-joo (Saimdang, Light’s Diary) plays is described as a timid and fearful woman who doesn’t have any social skills but still has her own charms.
KBS Wednesday-Thursday drama Welcome, written by Joo Hwa-mi (My Introverted Boss) and directed by Ji Byung-hyun, will begin on March 25.
