Cast lineup finalized for omnibus film Dog Days
First row: Yoo Hae-jin, Yoon Yeo-jung, Kim Yun-jin
Second row: Jung Sung-hwa, Kim Seo-hyun, Lee Hyun-woo, Tang Joon-sang
Casting has been finalized for upcoming film Dog Days. The film is a collection of healing stories centered around a veterinary hospital, and the people and pets who visit.
Kim Seo-hyung (Mine, Nobody Knows) plays the warm-hearted, humble veterinarian who heads the hospital. She’ll have a somewhat strained tenant-landlord relationship with Yoo Hae-jin (Space Sweepers), who plays the dog-hating owner of the building where the veterinary hospital is located.
Yoon Yeo-jung (Minari, Dear My Friends) plays a notable architect in Korea who lives alone with her dog Wanda. Tang Joon-sang (Racket Boys, Move to Heaven) plays a delivery part-timer who will have an interesting relationship with Yoon Yeo-jung’s character. Kim Yun-jin (Confession) and Jung Sung-hwa (Hero) play a couple who have become new parents after a prolonged adoption process. (It’s unclear how they’re connected to the veterinary hospital, but I’m looking forward to cute baby scenes.)
Last but not least, Lee Hyun-woo (The Liar and His Lover, Dream) plays a guitarist whose girlfriend has gone away and left her dog with him, even though he knows nothing about dogs. The role was originally reported to have gone to Kim Sun-ho, but it looks like production team has settled on another actor.
Filming for Dog Days will begin later this month, with Kim Deok-min (Hero) at the helm.
