Nam Joo-hyuk, Suzy, Kim Sun-ho, and Kang Hanna in new character stills for tvN’s Start-Up
Leading up to its premiere in just 2 weeks, a new batch of character stills have been released for tvN drama Start-Up featuring the main quartet.
The story is about a group of young adults from different backgrounds, who team up together to make their dreams into a reality – building their tech start-up to become a successful business like Google or Amazon.
The founder of said start-up is Nam Joo-hyuk (The School Nurse Files) who has a lot of expectations to fulfill. His character, Nam Do-san, won a slew of accolades and awards during his school years and his family had high hopes for his future after graduation. In reality, though, his career has been lackluster thus far and he struggles to keep his start-up afloat.
Suzy (Vagabond) plays the role of Seo Dal-mi, a character who has been working for much of her adult life and squirreling away as much money as she can. She dreams of the day her life finally turns around for the better and when she reunites with Nam Joo-hyuk, she believes his start-up is her ticket to gold.
Kim Sun-ho (Catch the Ghost) plays a businessman named Han Ji-pyung, who enjoys success in the industry of venture capital. Having had a difficult childhood, he was forced to grow-up quickly and has the aura of a mature adult. Although the details are unclear, his reasons for joining the start-up is described as repaying a debt.
Kang Hanna (Designated Survivor: 60 Days) takes on the part of charismatic CEO Won In-jae. She is described as someone who speaks her mind and has strong resolve, and is not easily swayed by emotional or circumstantial factors in her decisions. However, even she has secrets to hide and personal motivations that ultimately lead her to participate in Nam Joo-hyuk’s start-up.
Written by Park Hye-ryun (While You Were Sleeping) and directed by PD Oh Choong-hwan (Hotel Del Luna), tvN’s next weekend drama Start-Up premieres October 17.
