JTBC’s upcoming drama “Live On” (literal title) has released photos from their first script reading!
The script reading took place with director Kim Sang Woo, scriptwriter Bang Yoo Jung, and the main cast that includes NU’EST’s Minhyun, Jung Da Bin, Noh Jong Hyun, Yang Hye Ji, Yeonwoo, and VICTON’s Byungchan.
“Live On” is set to be a romance drama of two completely different characters, Seo Yeon High School celebrity Baek Ho Rang (played by Jung Da Bin), who enters the school’s broadcasting club with suspicious motives, and Go Eun Taek (played by Minhyun), the head of the broadcasting club.
Alongside them is Do Woo Jae (Noh Jong Hyun), who helps keep things orderly at the school and is close friends with Go Eun Taek as they both share an appreciation for putting logic and rationality above all else. Yang Hye Ji will take on the role of Ji So Hyun, the deputy head of the broadcasting club and a hardworking student with impressive grades. Kang Jae Yi (played by Yeonwoo) is Do Woo Jae’s girlfriend who showers him with love, while Byungchan will play Kim Yoo Shin, a Beagle-like, ingenuous guy.
The actors are said to have shown great chemistry at the script reading, falling deeper into their characters as they turned the pages. The quick-paced conversations and energetic atmosphere were enough to transport everyone back to high school.
Minhyun set aside his signature sweetness to become the cold perfectionist that Go Eun Taek is, while Jung Da Bin transformed into Baek Ho Rang, a social media influencer who believes she’s better than everyone. Noh Jong Hyun, Yang Hye Ji, Yeonwoo, and Byungchan also added more fun to the script by bringing their characters to life.
“Live On” is set to premiere in November.
