On Dec 16, Like a Butterfly’s production team confirmed that Kim Tae Hoon and Yoon Ji Hae joined Song Kang, Park In Hwan, Na Moon Hee and Hong Seung Hee.
Like a Butterfly is about Duk Chul, who begins ballet at the age of 70, and the 23-year-old ballerino Chae Rok, who has lost his ways while chasing his dreams. It will be based on the webtoon of the same name that scored a perfect score. 38 Task Force and Miss Lee director Han Dong Hwa and Tunnel writer Lee Eun Mi joined hands for the project.
Kim Tae Hoon plays Ki Seung Ju. He used to be a promising ballerino himself and is now Chae Rok’s ballet teacher. Ki Seung Joo, who was never interested in teaching someone, faces an unexpected change when he meets Chae Rok, who has the perfect physique and potential for ballet, as a disciple when he hits the bottom of his life. He is the one who introduces Chae Rok, who has lost his way, with ballet-loving Duk Chul.
Yoon Ji Hae plays Kim Seung Ju’s ex-wife and dance professor Eun So Ri. Unlike her elegant and chic images, she is a hard worker who has a strong passion for ballet. Deep down, she deeply misses her ex-husband.
The production team said, “With Kim Tae Hoon and Yoon Ju Hae, we have completed an even more solid cast lineup. As ‘teacher-student duo’ Song Kang and Duk Chul’s mentors, they will fully support the duo’s love for ballet.”
Meanwhile, Like a Butterfly will premiere in the first half of 2021.
