Actors Im Siwan and Seolhyun have been mentioned for the new drama “Summer Strike“.
On January 10, industry representatives reported that Im Siwan and Seolhyun will be starring as the leads of the new drama “Summer Strike” (working title).
In response to the report, Im Siwan’s agency PLUM A&C commented, “He received an offer for the project and is reviewing [the offer].” Seolhyun’s agency FNC Entertainment responded, “It is one of the projects she was offered, and she is reviewing [the offer].”
“Summer Strike” is a drama based on the popular webtoon “I Don’t Feel Like Doing Anything.” The romance story is about people who decide to quit their current lifestyles and move to a small town to do nothing.
Im Siwan has been offered the role of Ahn Dae Bum, a genius who competed in math problems against Seoul National University students 20 years ago. After experiencing an unfortunate incident, he still managed to enter Seoul National University, but he is now working as a librarian in a small seaside village named Angok.
Seolhyun has received a casting offer for Lee Yeo Reum, a 28-year-old who became a permanent employee three months ago at the company she has been working at for five years. However, she quits her job and just takes one backpack to Angok, where she lives in an empty billiard room.
“Summer Strike” will be directed by Lee Yoon Jung, who has worked on “Coffee Prince,” “Golden Time,” and “Cheese in the Trap.”
