A script read full of time-traveling mystery for MBC drama Kairos
The cast of the upcoming MBC drama Kairos gathered recently for their first script reading. Kairos tells a time-jumping story of two individuals who are adamant about saving their loved ones.
Shin Sung-rok (Vagabond) plays a desperate father whose young daughter has been kidnapped. He was originally a hard-working, successful, and ambitious man. When we meet him, he’s living in a timeline one month after his daughter has been kidnapped. On the other hand, Lee Se-young (Memorist) is living in a timeline one month previous to the disappearance of her beloved mother. In contrast to Shin, she’s had a tough life and a missing mother only adds to her burdens. In an attempt to rescue her mom, she begins a strange pursuit across time.
Director Park Seung-woo (Lookout) began the script read by saying: “90% of production is finished by gathering the right people. I feel reassured because we are starting with good people.” Writer Lee Soo-hyun added: “I am honored to work with such irreplaceable actors. I will do my best.”
Others present at the first script read included second leads Ahn Bo-hyun (Itaewon Class) and Nam Gyu-ri (Different Dreams). The supporting cast were also in attendance: Shin Gu (My Ajusshi), Kang Seung-yoon (Smart Prison Living), Hwang Jung-min (Doctor Detective), and Go Gyu-pil (Will You Have Dinner With Me).
Directed by Park Seung-woo and written by Lee Soo-hyun, Kairos is set to air on MBC during the latter half of this year.
