Kim Do-wan to join Hyeri and Jang Ki-yong in new drama
The trending actor Kim Do-wan from Start-up has chosen his next project. He’ll be joining Hyeri (Miss Lee) and Jang Ki-yong (Born Again) in upcoming webtoon-based drama Frightening Cohabitation.
The serial webtoon Frightening Cohabitation began in 2017 and has enjoyed a long streak of popularity ever since. It’s about a male gumiho who has yearned to become a human for hundreds of years. He even has a human occupation, as an author. Just as his goal is within reach, he loses his gumiho soul-marble to a female college student who swallows it by accident. Jang Ki-yong is set to play the gumiho, and Hyeri the college student.
Unfortunately, the gumiho soul-marble cannot exist in a human’s body for over a year. Any longer than that and it will crack inside the human and kill them. If that happens, the gumiho can never become a human. In order to protect his marble and find a way to get it out of her, Jang Ki-yong proposes living with Hyeri. Kim Do-wan will play Hyeri’s best guy friend.
The drama will be directed by Baek Seung-ryong (Pegasus Market). JTBC has yet to schedule when Frightening Cohabitation will air, but I’m hoping that we won’t have to wait too long.
