SBS Dream Cast
Update (5/12): Originally posted on May 8; revised on May 12.
Kim Beom (19), Joo Jin Mo (34), and Son Dam Bi (25) are finalizing agreements to co-star in Dream, an SBS drama to begin filming this summer.
Dream is a 16-episode drama with Baek Soo Chan (Golden Bride) directing and Jung Hyung Soo (Jumong, Damo) writing the script. It is being produced by CJ Entertainment, and will air on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning in September once Ja Myung Go ends its run. The project was previously titled Tough Guy, and is now in the process of casting and creating scripts.
Kim Beom’s character is named Lee Jang Seok, a tough guy who has spent time in a juvenile detention centre for pickpocketing. As he gets involved in mixed martial arts, he meets sports agent Nam Je Yil (Joo Jin Mo) by chance. The two embark on a difficult journey to reach the top. Son Dam Bi will play Park So Yeon, a 27-year-old Tae Bo instructor at her father’s martial arts centre. Her character has a strong image, and discovers martial arts athletes who have the potential to go pro.
Assuming that casting goes as planned, this will be singer Son Dam Bi’s drama debut. Kim Beom currently has several movie projects on the go after completing KBS drama Boys Over Flowers this past spring. Joo Jin Mo won a Best Actor PaekSang in February for his role in A Frozen Flower.
