Script reading for fantasy mystery drama The Great Shaman Ga Doo-Shim with Kim Sae-ron and Nam Da-reum
KakaoTV’s latest drama Shaman Girl Ga Doo-shim has released stills from the drama’s first script read.
The drama stars Kim Sae-ron (Leverage, Secret Healer) and Nam Da-reum (Start-Up, A Beautiful World) as two high school students who work together to face off against evil spirits and solve a mysterious case at their school.
Kim Sae-ron plays Ga Doo-shim, an 18-year-old girl who wants to live as an ordinary student but has to fulfill her unwanted fate of being a shaman. Nam Da-reum takes on the role of model student Na Woo-soo who unwillingly develops the ability to see ghosts. His character is the ultimate “mom’s friend’s son” which in Korea is a reference to that perfect son that your mom might compare you to. Though he may seem cold and arrogant but has a hidden warmth to him.
Yoo Seon-ho (Undercover, Produce 101) has a supporting role as the soul of a high school student who cannot leave the world after a tragic death. He lingers in the mortal realm next to Ga Doo-shim and the two of them have a friendship that is so close that they’re practically soulmates.
The supporting cast also includes Moon Sung-geun (Nobody Knows) as their school principal, Bae Hae-sun (Hotel Del Luna) as Doo-shim’s mother.
Directed by Park Ho-jin and written by Joo Brothers, this is KakaoTV’s first original fantasy mystery drama. Like KakaoTV’s other drama offerings, each episode of Shaman Girl Ga Doo-shim will have a runtime of 20 minutes with a total of 12 episodes and is set to premiere in the second half of the year.
