Racket Boys has chosen its six badminton-lovers.
Tang Joon Sang, Son Sang Yeon, Choi Hyun Wook, Kim Kang Hoon, Lee Jae In, and Lee Jin Won have completed a colorful cast lineup for the new SBS drama Racket Boys.
Racket Boys is a youth drama about 16-year-old boys and girls who dream of becoming the idol of the badminton circles. The drama will unfold against the backdrop of a humane rural village. It presents a well-made storytelling that will simultaneously present sitcom fun and humanistic impressions through those chasing their dreams.
First, Tang Joon Sang plays Yoon Hae Gang, a boy from the city. He was born with athletic abilities and animalistic instincts. Yoon used to be a baseball player in Seoul. But he was transferred to a school located in Ttangkkeut Village despite his opposition. Settling in a new school, he experiences various conflicts and crises.
Son Sang Yeon takes on the role of Bang Yoon Dam. He is the captain of the badminton club at Haenamseo Middle School. He is a born leader and has overflowing energy. Bang is addicted to social media and dreams of hitting 100,000 Instagram followers one day. He is a trusted ace member with both brilliant appearance and badminton skills.
Na Woo Chan plays Choi Hyun Wook. He is the “hip-hop boy” and the fashionista in Haenamseo Middle School. Unlike his naughty image, he is actually a troubleshooter who mediates conflicts between club members. Kim Kang Hoon will turn into Lee Yong Tae, a “too much talker” who knows everything about badminton.
Lee Jae In and Lee Ji Won become Han Se Yoon and Lee Han Sol, respectively. They are the members of the badminton club at Haenam Jaeil Girls’ Middle School. Han Se Yoon dreams of becoming the youngest member of the national team. She is the role model for younger players thanks to her perfect game management, excellent concentration, and desire to win. Lee Han Sol is the “popular girl” who has tons of things she likes and tons of things she wants to do. With her pricky attitude and temperament, she is the “disciplinarian” of the club.
Pan Entertainment shared, “Though they may be young, they are excellent actors who show 200% in their works. Please look forward to the great performance of these six rookies, who are armed with refreshing visuals and solid acting skills.”
Meanwhile, Racket Boys is produced by drama powerhouse Pan Entertainment. The company gifted us with works like Moon Embracing the Sun, Doctors, Fight For My Way, and Record of Youth. The new drama will premiere in the first half of this year.
