However, the optimist then sets her sights on webtoons, which has been her source of comfort since she was an athlete. She enters the webtoon editorial department after beating all odds, and she’s a rookie employee who lives with a positive attitude despite having to overcome many adversities.

 

The newly released stills depict Kim Sejeong perfectly synchronizing with On Ma Eum, and even the actress admitted that she is 100 percent synchronized with her character.

Thanks to her, the set is full of happy energy. In an era where webtoons have become indispensable content in our lives, [the drama] will depict the daily lives and hardships of webtoon writers that we have not known before and the fierce daily lives of webtoon editors, who are like ‘shadow artists,’ who silently support them from behind.”

Upcoming SBS drama “Today’s Webtoon” shared its first stills of Choi Daniel!

 

“Today’s Webtoon” is a Korean remake of the popular 2016 Japanese drama “Sleepeeer Hit!|” The drama will tell the story of On Ma Eum, a former judo athlete who joins Neon Webtoon’s editorial department as a new employee and struggles to mature into a true webtoon editor amidst South Korea’s competitive webtoon industry.

 

Choi Daniel will be taking on the role of Seok Ji Hyung, an unpredictable deputy editor with an unreadable poker face who becomes a dependable mentor for On Ma Eum. Although he can be brutally honest, Seok Ji Hyung is also a supportive editor who takes good care of his younger colleagues and the webtoon writers he works with. Nevertheless, outside of work, he shows a more clumsy side with his various charms and silly jokes.

 

The newly released stills depict Choi Daniel’s 200 percent synchronization with Seok Ji Hyung. Webtoon editors have to go through a lot of processes to upload webtoons every day, and there will definitely be a flow of unexpected incidents. However, Seok Ji Hyung always leads the team and deals with difficult matters in a cold and professional way. He exudes the aura of a reliable senior colleague who will solve anything, and it will be exciting to see his teamwork with Oh Ma Eum as he becomes her dependable mentor.

As soon as filming began, he perfectly transformed into Seok Ji Hyung, drawing admiration for fulfilling expectations. Choi Daniel’s deep acting, which will bring life to Seok Ji Hyung who is warmer than anyone else and cares about his younger colleagues, and chemistry with Kim Sejeong, who plays passionate rookie employee Oh Ma Eum, will be the key points of ‘Today’s Webtoon.'”

SBS’s upcoming drama “Today’s Webtoon” has dropped a close look at Nam Yoon Su’s transformation!

 

“Today’s Webtoon” is a Korean remake of the popular 2016 Japanese drama “Sleepeeer Hit!” The drama will tell the story of On Ma Eum (Kim Sejeong), a former judo athlete who joins Neon Webtoon’s editorial department as a new employee and struggles to mature into a true webtoon editor amidst South Korea’s competitive webtoon industry.

 

Nam Yoon Su will be transforming into the role of On Ma Eum’s co-worker Goo Joon Young who enters the company at the same time as her. He also boasts an impressive IQ of 150 and aims to be the best of the best. He’s always in the spotlight wherever he goes, so he’s confident that he’ll be a key figure at Neon, but he gets confused when he’s assigned to the webtoon editorial department.

 

On June 23, SBS unveiled new stills of Nam Yoon Su as Goo Joon Young, who exudes prickly and intelligent vibes with his cool demeanor. One key point to keep an eye on in the drama is Goo Joon Young’s chemistry with On Ma Eum. The two are completely different from each other, and unlike On Ma Eum, who always does her best in everything with passion and grit, Goo Joon Young, who has been aiming for the best but is assignment to a department he doesn’t like, will not be able to adjust to his new job and grow cynical instead.

The production team of “Today’s Webtoon” commented, “Actor Nam Yoon Su completely melted into a completely different role from his previous work. We are confident that you can look forward to his dramatic transformation.”

 

They also added that viewers should look forward to Goo Joon Young’s growth after living a perfect life without a single failure as he experiences conflicts for the first time and becomes influenced by On Ma Eum.

 

“Today’s Webtoon” will premiere on July 29 at 10 p.m. KST.

Highlight’s Son Dongwoon, Kim Kap Soo, Park Ho San, And More Are Notable Figures Of The Webtoon Industry In New Drama

SBS shared new stills previewing the cast of the upcoming drama “Today’s Webtoon”!

 

“Today’s Webtoon” is a Korean remake of the popular 2016 Japanese drama “Sleepeeer Hit!” The drama will tell the story of On Ma Eum (Kim Sejeong), a former judo athlete who joins Neon Webtoon’s editorial department as a new employee and struggles to mature into a true webtoon editor amidst South Korea’s competitive webtoon industry.

 

Kim Kap Soo plays webtoon author Baek Eo Jin, a legend in the industry who has written the martial arts hero manhwa “Dragon” for over 30 years. Although he experienced the industry’s transition from manhwa into webtoons, he still suits the title of a manhwa author more. Always looking over his assistants’ projects and supporting their debuts, he has a positive reputation within the industry.

Highlight’s Son Dongwoon plays Oh Yoon who is also known as the webtoon author “Yojeum” (meaning “nowadays” in Korean). In addition to his webtoon becoming greatly popular, he rose to stardom when his good looks were simultaneously revealed. Since then, Oh Yoon has starred on television shows and become a famous celebrity entertainer. However, being sincere about his work, he suddenly halts all his broadcast activities and dives into preparation for his next project.

In addition to Kim Kap Soo and Son Dongwoon, actors Lim Chul Soo, Kim Do Hoon, Ha Yul Ri, Jeon Hye Yeon, and Jang Sung Yoon will respectively transform into Neon’s representative author Na Kang Nam, On Ma Eum’s rookie author Shin Dae Ryook, star writer Ppommeu, author Goo Seul Ah, and rookie author Lee Woo Jin.

 

The production team shared, “Acting master Kim Kap Soo and Son Dongwoon, who will show off his potential as an acting idol, have transformed into webtoon authors. The process of them each facing problems and resolving them will deliver laughter and touch viewers. Please look forward to it a lot as viewers will be able to see the everyday lives of webtoon authors that weren’t previously known before.”

 

Along with the diverse webtoon writers, “Today’s Webtoon” will also feature various superiors working at On Ma Eum’s company Neon Webtoon. Park Ho San plays editor-in-chief Jang Man Chul who has 20 years of experience. Although he seems like an oddball, he has a keen eye for finding talented authors and also has great character, even causing authors he signs with to follow him when he switches to a different platform. He is a great mentor, and he will guide On Ma Eum to grow into a great editor after noticing her potential.

Yang Hyun Min plays Kwon Young Bae who is ranked No. 3 within the editorial department following Seok Ji Hyung (Choi Daniel). However, unlike Jang Man Chul and Seok Ji Hyung, he considers hit projects and good money-making works to be the best rather than having sincere love for webtoons. Only taking skills into consideration, Kwon Young Bae has dashed the dreams of many rookie authors. As a person who puts money first, viewers are curious to see what he will be able to teach On Ma Eum.

Ha Do Kwon plays the ambitious Heo Kwan Young who is in charge of all the content services with Neon’s portal site. He covets the position of executive director at Neon, and he will be a difficult superior for On Ma Eum to deal with. Heo Kwan Young will also have conflict with Jang Man Chul who wants to protect the editorial department.
