A rep from Star Empire told enews on May 3, "It is true that Im Si Wan auditioned for Not Life. It is also true that he received favorable results, and so will soon enter filming."
Not Life is about how Jang Geu Rae, a man who dreamed of becoming a professional baduk (go) player, gives up and enters an ordinary company as a contract worker. The first episode of the webtoon was released on January 20, 2012, and has since enjoyed much popularity online.
