Kim Sae-ron paired with Nam Da-reum in new fantasy mystery romance
Kim Sae-ron, Name Da-reum
Casting has been confirmed for Kim Sae-ron (Leverage) and Nam Da-reum (Start-Up) in KakaoTV’s first fantasy drama Shaman Girl Ga Doo-shim.
Taking on the central role, Kim Sae-ron plays Ga Doo-shim who wishes she can live an ordinary life just like other high school students in her age group. Alas, she was destined to become a shaman despite only being 18 and she bears the unwanted responsibility of dispelling evil spirits. The story sets off when she transfers to a new school and suddenly gets embroiled in a mysterious serial murder case along with fellow student Nam Da-reum.
Nam plays the part of a well-liked character named Na Woo-soo. Kind, and a model student, he comes from a wealthy family and hasn’t yet experienced much hardship in his life. This all changes of course when he meets Kim Sae-ron and, through her, inherits the ability to see evil spirits. Together they tackle the mystery that is plaguing their school and their relationship develops into something possibly romantic as well.
Directed by PD Park Ho-jin and written by Joo Brothers, KakaoTV’s Shaman Girl Ga Doo-shim will have a total of 12 episodes with each episode being 20 minutes long. Filming is set to officially start around mid-May and the drama is being planned to air towards the end of this year.
