Nam Yoon Su Talks About Playing An Elite Student Placed In An Unexpected Work Environment In “Today’s Webtoon”

 

“Today’s Webtoon” has shared a preview of Nam Yoon Su’s transformation into brainiac Goo Joon Young!

 

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.

 

Nam Yoon Su stars as Goo Joon Young, who joins the webtoon editorial department alongside On Ma Eum. Elite new employee Goo Joon Young has always been a top student, with good looks and a way with his words. Combining these traits with his polite manners and good attitude means Goo Joon Young is in the spotlight no matter where he goes.

 

Up until this point, Goo Joon Young sounds like he has everything. However, Nam Yoon Su described the character as a “chick and freshman in society.” Once Goo Joon Young gets hired, he’s appointed to the newly established webtoon editorial department. Despite having lived as an honors student all his life, the fact that he has minimal knowledge about webtoons immediately gets him treated at work like an inferior.

Nam Yoon Su explained, “Joon Young, who thought that a good workplace, good department, and promotions were obvious, is faced with an unpredictable situation. As he tries his hand at dirty work for the first time, he adjusts to the roles he’s appointed and gains new realizations.”

 

This is why before filming, Nam Yoon Su focused most on his own attitude, as “this is our first time being new employees, for both me and Joon Young.” He elaborated, “As a new employee, and as the actor playing that role, I thought it was more important than anything to have an attitude of being willing to work diligently and doing my best for a new start.”

The actor also shared why he chose to play Joon Young, saying, “I always want to try out characters I haven’t done before.” In his last project, Nam Yoon Su portrayed a sweet and innocent romanticist, whereas Goo Joon Young is the complete opposite of that.

 

Lastly, Nam Yoon Su shared, “Through this project, I learned that so much time and effort is needed to create a single webtoon issue and that incredible determination is necessary to meet deadlines. The struggles and efforts of the writers, who think competitively so that readers can enjoy comfortably, and the webtoon editors, who protect and support by [writers’] sides, was touching.”

 

“Today’s Webtoon” will premiere following the conclusion of “Why Her?” on July 29 at 10 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki!

Watch: Kim Sejeong Lets Go Of Her Gold Medal Dreams And Gets Optimistic New Start As An Editor In “Today’s Webtoon”

 

SBS’s “Today’s Webtoon” has shared an optimistic new teaser!

 

A Korean remake of the popular 2016 Japanese series “Sleepeeer Hit!”, “Today’s Webtoon” is a new 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.

 

The new teaser draws out the unexpected growth experienced by Oh Ma Eum as she transitions from a judo athlete to a webtoon editor. The clip starts with a determined On Ma Eum as she shows off her physical strength while fighting various people. However, she comments in the voiceover, “The future is always unpredictable.”

 

After living her entire life as a judo athlete dreaming of a gold medal, On Ma Eum suddenly finds herself in the workplace. Editor-in-chief Jang Man Chul (Park Ho San) comments, “If she comes to our team, don’t you think she’d work really well?” On Ma Eum shows the same amount of optimism as she calls out, “I will not inconvenience the team and work with all my heart.” She continues to fluster her senior co-workers as she drinks without hesitation and enthusiastically refuses to go home.

 

Now that avid webtoon reader On Ma Eum has incorporated her hobby into her career, she must work extra hard to use that positive energy and mature into a true editor. Through this journey, she meets her mentor Seok Ji Hyung (Choi Daniel) as well as her fellow new employee Goo Joon Young (Nam Yoon Su).

 

Despite having let go of her previous dreams as a judo athlete, On Ma Eum is eventually able to realign her life path as she comments, “I like webtoons, just as much as judo.”

Kim Sejeong And Nam Yoon Su Showcase Unique Chemistry As Co-Workers Without Anything In Common In “Today’s Webtoon”

 

Kim Sejeong and Nam Yoon Su will transform into co-workers who couldn’t be any more different in “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. It 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.

 

Kim Sejeong stars 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.

 

Nam Yoon Su stars as Goo Joon Young, who joins the webtoon editorial department alongside On Ma Eum. Elite new employee Goo Joon Young has always been a top student with good looks and a way with his words. Combining these traits with his polite manners and good attitude means he’s in the spotlight no matter where he goes.

 

One notable difference between On Ma Eum and Goo Joon Young is that she’s thrilled to be part of Neon Webtoon’s editorial department while he’s taken aback that he’s been placed in an unexpected work environment.

 

In the newly released stills, On Ma Eum and Goo Joon Young are starting to adapt to their new workplace. The key difference is that while On Ma Eum is fired up with positive spirits, Goo Joon Young is struggling already. On Ma Eum displays the qualities of a good co-worker as she helps Goo Joon Young carry some items, including a life-sized standee, whereas Goo Joon Young even has a hard time going up the stairs.

On Ma Eum and Goo Joon Young have completely different backgrounds, personalities, and values. For On Ma Eum, Neon Webtoon is a place that will help her second dream come true, but for Goo Joon Young, it is a place he must escape in order to work for the core department of the company.

 

Despite having lived as an honors student all his life, the fact that Goo Joon Young has minimal knowledge about webtoons immediately gets him treated at work like an inferior. However, the thing he can’t understand the most is On Ma Eum. He finds her tendency to be passionate and positive in every situation baffling, and it seems like they won’t be able to get along at all. So it will be intriguing to find out what made their camaraderie bloom and how he will open up to her as they grow and learn as new members of the editorial department.

 

Spoiler

Kim Sejeong gave the chemistry of On Ma Eum and Goo Joon Young 100 out of 100 points and remarked, “Our [characters] are such different rookies that I think the viewers will find them really cute. When I’m with Nam Yoon Su, I find myself smiling without realizing it.”

Nam Yoon Su commented, “For now, I give 70 points to their chemistry. Since there is still a lot of chemistry left to fill, I want to leave the remaining 30 points until the end of the drama.”

 

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

The cast of SBS’s “Today’s Webtoon” shared interesting facts about their characters!

 

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. It 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.

 

Kim Sejeong shared that On Ma Eum’s MBTI (Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) is ENFJ, reflecting her character’s positive attitude while leading her co-workers in any scenario. Even after giving up her dream of becoming an Olympic gold medalist, she dreams anew of becoming a great webtoon editor. On Ma Eum’s favorite webtoon character is San Ha from Na Kang Nam’s (Im Chul Soo’s) webtoon “Gumiho Princess.” Kim Sejeong shared, “It’s the project Ma Eum spent her 20s with, and it’s the character she received comfort from every time she experienced a slump while doing judo.”

Choi Daniel plays Seok Ji Hyung, an unpredictable deputy editor with an unreadable poker face who becomes a dependable mentor for On Ma Eum. The actor shared that he analyzed Seok Ji Hyung to be an introverted figure. Choi Daniel commented, “Since he is the opposite of me because I’m extroverted, I’m paying more attention to portray his inner feelings and to understand them more carefully.” The actor added, “He likes sushi and warm tea,” and revealed that unlike Seok Ji Hyung’s professional image, he also has a clumsy side to him such as being bad with directions.

Nam Yoon Su stars as Goo Joon Young who joins the webtoon editorial department alongside On Ma Eum. The actor analyzed his character to have the MBTI of ISTJ. His realistic and logical nature explains why he will clash with the bright and optimistic On Ma Eum. Nam Yoon Su shared, “[Goo Joon Young] feels proud when he sees things neatly organized. He enjoys tea and coffee, and he actually quite enjoys snacks. He prefers outfits with neat solid colors rather than extravagant clothing.”

Kim Sejeong Is Ready To Conquer The Chaotic World Of Webtoons In “Today’s Webtoon”

SBS has released an action-packed new poster for its 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.

Despite the pandemonium in the background, On Ma Eum stands coolly in the center of the poster with unshakable poise and confidence, revealing she is more than prepared to take on this daunting new world. Meanwhile, her co-workers Goo Joon Young (Nam Yoon Su), Seok Ji Hyung (Choi Daniel), Jang Man Chul (Park Ho San), Kwon Young Bae (Yang Hyun Min). Ki Yoo Mi (Kang Rae Yeon), and Choi Doo Hee (Ahn Tae Hwan) are buried in a sea of comic books as they hilariously battle the mayhem with varying levels of skill and composure.

Watch: Kim Sejeong Is A Fiery And Optimistic New Employee In “Today’s Webtoon” Preview

 

Jul 24, 2022

by S. P

 

SBS has released a preview of the first episode for its 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.

 

The preview begins as On Ma Eum states at her interview for Neon Webtoon, “I have to win. That’s why I’ve come with my strength prepared!” She gets down on the floor to do pushups in front of the hiring committee, but she soon falters after three. Her voice cries, “I’m done for!”

 

Kim-Sejeong-1-1-1536x864.jpg

 

However, her prowess as a former judo athlete is proved by a montage of clips where she throws people over her shoulder. A voice says, “Ma Eum is someone who has a strange knack for winning at times where she has a 100 percent chance of losing.” Ma Eum then dances in excitement as she exclaims, “I passed the interview!”

 

When she finally sets foot in the company building, she excitedly approaches Seok Ji Hyung (Choi Daniel), whom she calls “On PD.” With her voice squeaking like that of a dolphin, Seok Ji Hyung can only stare back at her and ask, “What are you doing?”

 

Goo Joon Young (Nam Yoon Su), another new recruit, is seen passing out at a table after sharing a round of drinks, and a voice remarks, “The new employees from this round are complete polar opposites.” The preview comes to an end as On Ma Eum states with determination, “I’m doing my very best, and I’m going to keep doing just that.”

 

The drama’s producers commented, “On Ma Eum’s run-in with a dream and future she never even imagined will begin in a dynamic way from the very first episode. Please look forward to it!”

 

Watch the preview below!

 

 

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

“Today’s Webtoon” Actors Kim Sejeong, Nam Yoon Su, And Choi Daniel Share What Kind Of Webtoon Characters They Want To Be

 

The cast of SBS’s “Today’s Webtoon” talked about what kind of webtoon characters they’d like to be!

 

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. It 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.

 

Kim Sejeong stars 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.

 

Nam Yoon Su stars as Goo Joon Young, who joins the webtoon editorial department alongside On Ma Eum. Elite new employee Goo Joon Young has always been a top student with good looks and a way with his words. Combining these traits with his polite manners and good attitude means he’s in the spotlight no matter where he goes.

 

Choi Daniel will play Seok Ji Hyung, an unpredictable deputy editor with an unreadable poker face who becomes a dependable mentor for On Ma Eum.

 

The three actors discussed what kind of character they’d want to be if they were in a webtoon. First off, Kim Sejeong answered, “[I would be] a rich person who doesn’t gain weight no matter what I eat. I want to be a writer who goes around famous restaurants all over the world, eats only delicious food, and writes a travel diary.” Her character On Ma Eum also eats and works out with enthusiasm, so fans will be able to see how Kim Sejeong depicts that side of her.

 

Kim-Sejeong-10-768x564.jpg

 

Choi Daniel also gave an interesting answer. He replied, “I want to be the ‘world’s strongest man’ who uses omnipotent superpowers.” In “Today’s Webtoon,” he’ll play an “omnipotent” superior who solves all kinds of problems and leads the rookie employees to become true editors.

 

Choi-Daniel-1-768x553.jpg

 

Nam Yoon Su gave an unexpected but specific response by picking a character in a noir genre. He shared, “[I’d like to be] a blunt, cold, and charismatic character who loses one leg in an unexpected accident and sets out for revenge, like the man in the movie ‘The Man From Nowhere.'” Nam Yoon Su is expected to step out of his usual role of a warm and friendly character and portray the cold charms of Goo Joon Young in “Today’s Webtoon.”
