′Surplus Princess′ Casts Jo Bo Ah, Song Jae Lim, On Ju Wan, Nam Joo Hyuk and More
Ready to jump into filming, tvN′s new drama, Surplus Princess has completed its star-studded cast.
Surplus Princess is a story about a mermaid who lives as a human in a world where unemployed people are not treated as people. For the story of a mermaid learning to live in the human world, Jo Bo Ah, On Ju Wan, Song Jae Lim, Nam Joo Hyuk, Kim Min Gyo, and Kim Seul Gi have been confirmed as the new cast.
Jo Bo Ah was cast as the mermaid princess, Hani, who longs to become human and gets into several comical situations during the process. Jo Bo Ah debuted through tvN′s Shut Up Flower Boy Band in 2012, and has continued her acting career through MBC′s Horse Doctor, movie Thorn, and more, being anticipated as a rising star rookie.
Oh Ju Wan will play Hyun Myung, an applicant preparing for employment. Rather than the arts or passion, Hyun Myung is a realist who puts importance in living day by day. He is expected to have a romantic relationship with Hani. On Ju Wan was recently praised for his performance in the movie Obsessed.
Song Jae Lim will play a narcistic and pretentious man. As he′s mostly been shown as a cold and stiff antagonist on both the big and small screens, Song Jae Lim′s new transformation is being anticipated.
After getting his name out there through Akdong Musician′s 200% music video, model Nam Joo Hyuk has been cast as a graduating university student who says he′s preparing for employment, but is actually just freeloading off of his parents′ money. Although he is living in a comfortable environment, he is a character that lacks his parents′ love. This will be Nam Joo Hyuk′s first role in a drama series.
Baek Seung Ryong PD of Surplus Princess met with the reporter and said, "Nam Joo Hyuk is an anticipated model-turned-actor, who passed the audition amongst competitive idol group members. Our expectations for him are great. We hope everyone will watch with much affection and interest."
Also cast are Kim Min Gyo and Kim Seul Gi, who both rose to popularity through SNL Korea through their comical acting.
On the drama, Baek Seung Ryong PD stated, "We plan on delivering a message about the competitive and realistic every-day lives of our youth in a comical way. Please anticipate a story as our actors act with the emotions of a Disney movie mixed with the DNA of SNL Korea.
Surplus Princess will jump into fimling at the end of June. It will begin airing sometime in July.
