[Cast Away] A ragtag book club tracks down a secret admirer
Don’t you just hate it when you’re short a few million dollars to produce a drama with your dream team of actors, writers, and directors? *pouts* Well, we found a way to scratch that itch!
Introducing the new Dramabeans community series Cast Away — where Beanies can advocate for their chosen actors and creatives in imaginary roles.
How it works: Each week, we’ll share a hypothetical K-drama plot with you. In the comments, discuss who you think is the perfect cast to play the roles in this imaginary show.
You can also go wild and introduce more characters, rename the show, pick your favorite director, etc. Who knows? Maybe our collective wishing will manifest fantasy casting into reality.
This week’s K-drama plot: bookworms-turned-love-sleuths
A woman who owns a cozy bookstore begins receiving anonymous love letters. She enlists the help of her book club to uncover the identity of her secret admirer and in the process, she finds love where she least expects it. (Of course!)
Who hasn’t had a crush on a bookish person at least once in their lives? Let’s take some inspiration from that for our casting ideas. Will your bookstore heroine be a cool genius? Or is she reserved à la Seo Kang-joon in I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day? Who are the members of the book club and would you like them to be competent sleuths or misguided hindrances to the lovebirds? Throw in casting ideas for your hiding hero too. What’s his background and why does it take eight episodes for the book club to suss him out?
Feel free to request a plot line for future Cast Away posts. We’ll do our best (beep-boop!) to serve a fun twist on it.
