Teen actress Kim So Hyun, who appeared in the drama “Who Are You: School 2015” last year, has been cast in a new drama.
The tvN drama is an adaptation of the webtoon “Let’s Fight Ghost (literal translation),” which was published from 2007 to 2010 on Naver and accumulated over 700 million views. The script for the drama adaptation will be written by Kim Ji Sun and directed by Park Joon Hwa.
The webtoon tells the story of a ghost and a living person who has the power to see spirits. Kim So Hyun will play the female lead named Kim Hyun Ji, who did nothing but study her entire life until she was killed in an accident and became a ghost.
Kim Hyun Ji wanders the world for years until she meets Park Bong Pal, who listens to the stories of ghosts and helps them pass on. The two of them work together to perform exorcisms and in the process grow closer to one another.
On April 27, Kim So Hyun’s agency SidusQ said, “Her casting has been confirmed. Please anticipate a new side of Kim So Hyun’s acting.”
tvN also reported, “Kim So Hyun’s casting is confirmed. We are currently in the process of casting the male lead.”
The drama is expected to air sometime in July.
