Kim Min Kyu, a former Produce X 101 contestant, will be making his acting debut in the upcoming web drama, Boy and Girl Straight Out of a Cartoon (literal translation).
On March 19, Playlist announced that Kim would be starring in the upcoming web drama based on popular webtoon. They also added that “Kim Min Kyu has been chosen for the role of Chun Nam Wook, the male lead of ‘Boy and Girl Straight Out of a Cartoon.’”
Boy and Girl Straight Out of a Cartoon is based on a webtoon of the same title, which has been published in NAVER Webtoon since September 2019. It tells the story of the whirlwind romance between Chun Nam Wook, the male protagonist of a long-running manhwa (Korean comics), who for some reason steps into the real world, and Hang Sun Nyeo, a high school student, who happens to share the same face and the name as the female protagonist in the same manhwa.
Meanwhile, the upcoming web drama is the new project in 2020, produced by Playlist, NAVER subsidiary company. The production is scheduled to begin as soon as they complete the main cast, and will be aired in June.
