“Ildangbaek Butler” (literal title) tells the story of Butler Kim, who runs errands that begin at a cost of 100 won (approximately 10 cents) per job, and funeral director Baek Dong Joo, who grants the wishes of the dead, as they operate an errand-running business called Ildangbaek (meaning one person doing the work of 100, and in this specific case, also referring to the fact that one errand costs 100 won).
Hyeri will take on the role of Baek Dong Joo, who possesses a strange ability to communicate with the deceased. Unless the deceased’s last wish is fulfilled, she has to spend the whole day with no luck. Lee Jun Young will play Butler Kim, the only employee and ace at the daily errands service Ildangbaek. He gets entangled with the strange Baek Dong Joo and starts working together on a project that transcends life and death.
The drama’s heart-fluttering new poster captures Butler Kim and Baek Dong Joo smiling warmly at one another as they stand face to face outside of the Ildangbaek office. The office window reads, “We will fulfill anything.” Stay tuned to learn more about what kind of wishes the deceased have and to see the synergy between Hyeri and Lee Jun Young as they form a sweet yet savage team.
