Kim Sejeong Depicts Different Kinds Of Chemistry With Mentor Choi Daniel And Co-Worker Nam Yoon Su

 

Jul 1, 2022

by L. Kim

 

Upcoming SBS drama “Today’s Webtoon” has shared a new glimpse of its lead cast!

 

“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 Sejeong will star as On Ma Eum who gives up on her Olympic dreams after suffering an injury. 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.

 

Choi Daniel will take 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.

 

Nam Yoon Su will transform into 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.

 

The newly released stills show On Ma Eum’s very different relationships with Seok Ji Hyung and Goo Joon Young. First off, Seok Ji Hyung will become On Ma Eum’s dependable mentor. Sure, he can be harsh at times, but he’s supportive of his younger colleagues, and he will help On Ma Eum as she strives to thrive in her new career. Seok Ji Hyung especially has a soft spot for her because her passion and grit reminds him of his past days when he was a rookie employee. One of the key points of the drama is Seok Ji Hyung and On Ma Eum’s teamwork that will be built on trust.

On the other hand, On Ma Eum’s chemistry with Goo Joon Young is a mystery as it’s not revealed whether it’s a negative or positive one considering they have very different personalities. Goo Joon Young has only walked on a bed of roses, and he thought everything in his career would flow smoothly, but he becomes disappointed when he ends up in the editorial department where On Ma Eum is happy to be part of. It will be intriguing to see how Goo Joon Young’s attitude towards webtoons and his relationship with On Ma Eum will change as the story progresses.

The producers teased, “One of the important things that many office workers consider is the relationship with colleagues. On Ma Eum, who has set foot in a company for the first time, will also become a real office worker by either joining forces or engaging in conflicts with different people. Her relationships with Seok Ji Hyung and Goo Joon Young, who will influence her the most during that process, will be drawn realistically. There will be an entertaining time of empathy where real office workers will watch while nodding their head [in agreement with the plot developments].”

 

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

Reasons To Watch Kim Sejeong, Nam Yoon Su, And Choi Daniel’s Upcoming Office Drama About Webtoon Industry

SBS’s remake drama starring Kim Sejeong, Nam Yoon Su, and Choi Daniel is coming soon!

 

“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 editor amidst South Korea’s competitive webtoon industry.

 

With less than a month until the drama’s premiere, here are three reasons why you should tune in to “Today’s Webtoon”!

 

1. A real-life depiction of office life for webtoon editors

“Today’s Webtoon” realistically captures the webtoon industry’s unknown process of what it takes to convey popular content to readers. This means that the drama will depict all the time, effort, and consideration that writers put into drawing each cut, as well as the conflict and collaboration editors experience as they fight to meet deadlines every single day. Within this process, there will be a wide variety of characters and a realistic demonstration of situations that occur between co-workers.

2. The growth of Neon Webtoon and new employee On Ma Eum

Neon Webtoon is a new department that was recently opened by IT company Neon. As their performance levels are not up to par yet, they’re considered a “foreign team” even in the office. However, this Neon Webtoon editorial department boasts a diverse team, including former judo athlete On Ma Eum, who has a wide array of connections, deputy editor Seok Ji Hyung (Choi Daniel) who acts as a mentor for his junior co-workers, and the cold Goo Joon Young (Nam Yoon Su), who has a high IQ and the confidence to go with it.

 

Although they are unfamiliar with everything, this trio does everything they can to help webtoon writers upload in time. Amidst the competitive webtoon industry, stay tuned to see whether Neon Webtoon will survive and reach the top, and whether On Ma Eum will be able to succeed and fulfill her next dream as a webtoon editor.

3. A spotlight on the editors who support webtoon artists

Most importantly, “Today’s Webtoon” puts the spotlight on webtoon editors, who support webtoon writers from behind the scenes. The drama tells the story of all the employees who do their best to upload webtoons on time, as well as “shadow artists” who have chosen to be supporters so that webtoon artists can shine.

 

Just like how the drama “Stove League” depicts an exciting story of growth for a last-place baseball team, but focuses on their management instead of the players, “Today’s Webtoon” will have the same kind of relatable impact on office workers. The producers of “Today’s Webtoon” shared, “We will greet you with a 300 percent drama that is a combination of being 100 percent realistic, 100 percent relatable, and 100 percent immersive, that makes you go, ‘Isn’t this my story?'”

 

“Today’s Webtoon” premieres on July 29 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki!

“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 editor amidst South Korea’s competitive webtoon industry.

 

The cheerful On Ma Eum always wears a bright smile that makes everyone happy and energized. She works even harder with encouragement, making the person who gave her the words of support feel happy in turn. Kim Sejeong stayed focused and serious while practicing her lines and monitoring her acting, but she would immediately put on a dazzling smile the moment filming began, immersing herself flawlessly into her role.

 

For her new role as a former judo athlete, Kim Sejeong gave her character a more sporty look. One of the stills previews On Ma Eum looking the part of a rookie employee with her clean and simple black suit, conveying the image of a young adult first stepping into the workforce.

Kim Sejeong shared, “The people around me are most jealous of my stamina. I built it up since I was young through hiking mountains.” Kim Sejeong’s strength and stamina will shine in the upcoming drama, which will involve more physically active scenes of her running and showing judo moves.

On the flip side, there are the writers of “Today’s Webtoon” who work hard to create webtoons and each have their own struggles despite the reliable support from the editing team.

The stills preview manhwa industry legend Baek Eo Jin (Kim Kab Soo), Neon’s representative author Na Kang Nam (Im Chul Soo), genius rookie Shin Dae Ryoon (Kim Do Hoon), popular star writer Ppommeu (Ha Yul Ri), celebrity author Oh Yoon (Highlight’s Son Dongwoon), Lee Woo Jin (Jang Sung Yoon) who participates in Neon Webtoon’s camp, and rookie author Goo Seul Ah (Jeon Hye Yeon) who realistically worries about employment.

Kim Sejeong Talks About New Drama “Today’s Webtoon” + How It’s Changed Her Perspective On Webtoons

Kim Sejeong has shared her thoughts on her upcoming drama “Today’s Webtoon“!

 

A Korean remake of the popular 2016 Japanese series “Sleepeeer Hit!”, “Today’s Webtoon” is a new SBS drama set against the backdrop of South Korea’s competitive webtoon industry. Kim Sejeong will star as On Ma Eum, a former judo athlete who joins a webtoon editorial department as a new employee and struggles to mature into a true editor.

 

As “Today’s Webtoon” tells the story of someone giving up on one dream (judo) and pursuing a second (webtoons), Kim Sejeong reflected on the importance of dreams and how they’re portrayed in the drama.

 

“I’ve always liked the word ‘dream,'” said Kim Sejeong. “[On Ma Eum] and I are almost exactly alike in the way we both chase after our dreams with passion and positive energy.”

 

“A dream that you’ve fulfilled shines bright,” she continued. “All dreams are precious, whether they’re dreams you’ve managed to hold onto them or dreams that you haven’t been able to make come true.”

 

However, she went on to note, “This drama doesn’t only show the bright side of dreams; it also portrays the dark and unglamorous sides of the realistic journey involved [in chasing those dreams]. I thought it would be interesting to approach this story from the viewpoint of the cheerful and positive Ma Eum, as well as that of Kim Sejeong.”

 

Kim-Sejeong-2-768x768.jpg

 

To play the role of On Ma Eum, Kim Sejeong changed her hairstyle to a cute bob cut. She commented with a laugh, “Thanks to the character, I’m once again realizing just how hard it is to maintain a bob cut.”

 

As for the other ways she prepared for her role, the idol-turned-actress remarked, “I went to a real-life judo athlete for advice. I also met up with a webtoon editor, and we had a conversation about lots of different things.”

 

Kim-Sejeong-3-768x768.jpg

 

Describing herself as a fan of webtoons, Kim Sejeong revealed, “I enjoy reading webtoons in real life as well. Now that more and more webtoons are being adapted into dramas, I’ve sometimes read a webtoon and thought, ‘I’d like to try playing the main character.'”

 

She also shared that starring in “Today’s Webtoon” has changed the way she looks at webtoons, explaining that when she reads them, she now notices things she wouldn’t have caught before.

 

“[While filming this drama,] I learned about the process that it takes to create one webtoon,” she said. “Now, apart from the story, I also find myself noticing the toil and effort of the writer and editors to meet their deadlines.”

 

Finally, Kim Sejeong concluded by remarking, “Please keep an eye on Ma Eum’s journey of growth as she races towards her dreams within the realistic world of the webtoon industry.”
