Yoo Ah In, Im Soo Jung, And Go Kyung Pyo Confirmed For Upcoming tvN Fantasy Drama

tvN’s upcoming drama “Chicago Typewriter” (tentative title) has officially confirmed its main cast.

Yoo Ah In, Im Soo Jung, and Go Kyung Pyo have been confirmed to appear in the upcoming drama. According to a source, they will be having their first table reading this week and will meet with the rest of the cast as well as the production team.

Yoo Ah In is set to play Han Se Joo, an idol in the literary world who is a best-selling writer. With looks that rival the visuals of celebrities, he has a ton of fans, but he is sensitive, rough, timid, and extremely depressed on the inside.

Im Soo Jung will be playing a character who is a legend in veterinary medicine and is also a literary fanatic. Rather than placing her bets on the future, she only focuses on faithfully living in the present.

Go Kyung Pyo stars as Yoo Jin Oh, a ghost writer with a genius writing style. He is a jazz maniac and a lover of antiques. He is a mysterious character who jokes around and lies with a completely serious facial expression.

Yay!! Cannot wait to watch this especially now that the leads are confirmed.

Chicago Typewriter, While You Were Sleeping, and Bride of the Water God are my must-watch Korean dramas for this year.

[Hot Takes from the Noonas] Possible backlash with Yoo Ah-in's casting in "Chicago Typewriter"

fullsizephoto821947.jpg

Less than a week after his bone tumour diagnosis was revealed, Yoo Ah-in has accepted the lead role in "Chicago Typewriter". Korean netizens feel played by a PR campaign.

"Chicago Typewriter" will mark Yoo Ah-in's first acting job since he finished filming "Six Flying Dragons" at the end of 2015. His intention was to begin mandatory army service after finishing the action sageuk, but a persistent shoulder injury has repeatedly postponed enlistment.

Along with Yoo Ah-in, Im Soo-jeong and Ko Kyeong-pyo are also confirmed leads for "Chicago Typewriter". The first table reading is scheduled for this week.

Yoo Ah-in acting opposite an awarding winning actress like Im Soo-jeong, who has not been in a drama since 2004, should be cause for excitement. Unfortunately, Korean netizens are reacting with skepticism, wondering why Yoo Ah-in is healthy enough to engage in the infamously rigorous live shooting schedule, but not fit to fulfil army service.

tvN gathered such a fantastic cast now hope for the script to deliver....This year started so good,with lots of amazing projects so i can't wait to see what they got in store for us and always happy when we're presented with original content and tvN is one of the stations that like to experiment...Another plus will be the time period...My only wish now is for Yoo AhIn to be healthy and in full form and out of danger...

 

 

Ah,the salty knet are at it again,i heard the Ministery will give the response of the re-examination from March to when he'll go to army in June,by then he'll finish this project,so can't understand why are they so spiteful,that if they do it out of ignorance or just plain malign hate...

I have no idea what's going on the sides about Yoo Ah In.. but  fingers crossed this will be a good drama.  But I read page 1 fantasy fusion rom-com. Is it really rom-com? I'm only fan of the genre when it's done right.  Script better be good.

I have faith in the scriptwriter because I loved her previous dramas. Both Moon Embracing the Sun and Kill Me Heal Me had solid scripts.

Goblin's OST was so beautiful! I expect the same for CT if it's the same music director. Hopefully we could have photos from their first script reading today. Yay for Chicago Typewriter!! And I really hope that CT will save the Fridays/Saturday timeslot for tvN because currently Tomorrow with You is not doing so well..

So this is not set in the 1930's but the characters are the reincarnated versions of those from the era? Also what does it mean by fantasy fusion? (this was the genre listed on the first page)

 Yes, from my understanding the plot is set in modern times. The characters are reincarnated writers from 1930. I took the genre from the translation of Dramabeans. 

A fusion fantasy is a drama that has a base of fantasy and combine different genre in it. I read a better explanation in this article.

https://mythicscribes.com/miscellaneous/fusion-fantasy-reaching-beyond-genre/

Because it is a fantasy drama, the writer has the opportunity to get further a typical rom com but who knows? I think I will change the genre in the first page as a fantasy romantic comedy drama to not confuse people any further.
