Coding and romance Start-Up for Suzy and Nam Joo-hyuk in tvN youth drama
New stills have been released for tvN’s upcoming youth drama Start-Up, featuring lead actors Suzy (Vagabond) and Nam Joo-hyuk (The Light in Your Eyes).
In a coming-of-age story, the drama takes place in the business and technology sector where a group of young adults put their heart and soul into a fledgling start-up, dreaming of becoming the next Apple or Samsung.
Suzy takes on the role of Seo Dal-mi, whose goal is to become a rags-to-riches success. Having worked all sorts of part-time jobs since an early age, she’s been steadily saving little by little. When she reunites with her first love, Nam Joo-hyuk, she invests her savings into his start-up and works together with his team in order to make all of their dreams into a reality.
Nam Joo-hyuk plays Nam Do-san, the founder of a start-up called Samsan Tech. He believes there was a misunderstanding that caused Suzy to think highly of him as her childhood first love. When she joins his company team, he doesn’t want to fall short of her expectations and works hard to become as great as the person in her memory.
Rounding out the main quartet are Kim Sun-ho (Catch the Ghost) and Kang Hanna (Designated Survivor: 60 Days), who are not featured in the stills, sadly. Although they will each have their own reasons for joining the start-up, their characters will be more business-savvy and bring much needed experience and know-how to the group.
Written by Park Hye-ryun (While You Were Sleeping) and directed by PD Oh Choong-hwan (Hotel Del Luna), tvN’s Start-Up will be airing weekends and premiering next month in October.
