According to Starnews, these four actors have recently decided to star in Mr. Robin and are coordinating details. Based on the webtoon Dr. Brain, medical mystery thriller Mr. Robin depicts what a genius brain scientist experiences as he accesses the dead people’s brain. Along with Mr. Robin, “Dr. Brain” and “Alfa-Romeo” are being considered for the title.
Director Kim was in talks to direct the drama version of Dr. Brain many years ago, but the production was halted for years and only recently began to specify the plans. YG Studio Plex will be producing the drama as a 6-part series. Originally, Kim was scheduled to lead the French drama Cloud 47 (working title), but the production was postponed indefinitely due to inside affairs and the COVID-19 pandemic.
The fact that this is Kim Ji Woon’s first-ever series drama and a joint production with Apple TV Plus, which is preparing in earnest to enter the Korean market, has made headlines.
Director Kim has offered Lee Sun Kyun the title role early on and has recently completed the cast lineup that includes Yoo Teo, Lee Yoo Young, and Seo Ji Hye.
Meanwhile, Mr. Robin will begin filming in February, and the release date will be discussed with Apple TV Plus in line with their entry into South Korea.
