The upcoming new drama Summer Guys’ cast has been revealed and it is simply stellar to say the least!
Summer Guys is a drama that will be helmed by the Korea Creative Content Agency for their 2020 new media (short-form broadcast) project. The story revolves around four youths who get together to revive an old cocktail bar at the beach.
Raising the heat as well as expectations for the drama is the spectacular star cast for the same as CNBLUE’s Lee Jung Shin, Kwon Hyun Bin, Gugudan’s Mina, and Lim Nayoung will be seen essaying the leading roles in Summer Guys.
Moreover, the drama will be directed by Heo Chan, who led the Netflix drama My Runway and worked as assistant director on Bong Joon Ho’s Snowpiercer. Talking about the casting choice, he stated, “The casting fits the characters so well it’s like the actors emerged out of the script. I hope that this lineup can also lead into Season 2.”
The drama Summer Guys is said to be somewhat of a Korean version of Coyote Ugly and Cocktail, with the central themes being youth, dancing, and music. Set on Jeju Island, the drama’s production staff is currently working with a local hotel to build a real cocktail bar that can also be used even after the filming ends.
The production company stated, “Due to word-of-mouth about the script and production, a Chinese remake of the drama is already in the works even though the original is not yet complete. We plan to use this content IP (intellectual property) in the OSMU (one source, multi-use) format so that the drama can have multiple seasons and spin-offs. We will work hard to fulfill the viewers’ expectations for Summer Guys, which will be available through OTT services worldwide.”
