Choi Daniel may star alongside Kim Sejeong in the upcoming SBS drama “ Today’s Webtoon ” (literal translation)!
“ Today’s Webtoon ” is a Korean remake of the popular 2016 Japanese series “Sleepeeer Hit!”. The new drama will star Kim Sejeong as On Ma Eum, a former judo athlete who joins a webtoon editorial department as a new employee and struggles to become a proper editor amid the competitive webtoon industry in South Korea.
On April 8, Choi Daniel’s agency clarified reports that he was set to star in the drama, stating, “Choi Daniel has received a casting offer for SBS’s new drama ‘ Today’s Webtoon ,’ and he is currently considering the offer with a favorable prospect”.
Choi Daniel has been offered the lead role of Seok Ji Hyung, an unpredictable assistant editor with a straight face who becomes a reliable mentor for On Ma Eum. While he can be brutally honest, Seok Ji Hyung is also a writer who takes care of his younger colleagues and the webtoon writers he works with.
If Choi Daniel accepts the role, ‘ Today’s Webtoon ‘ will mark his first drama in four years: the actor’s last time on the small screen was in 2018’s ‘ The Ghost Detective ‘.
Meanwhile, Nam Yoon Su was also recently confirmed to appear in the drama as Goo Joon Young.
