Rising actress Kim Se Jeong will lead an upcoming TV series.
An official from the drama department informed Sports Daily on the 5th, “Kim Se Jeong will take on the role of the main character of SBS’s series, Webtoon of the Day (literal title).”
Webtoon of the Day is an adaptation of the Japanese series Sleepeeer Hit! (aka Juhan Shuttai!). The story revolves around a protagonist who works for an editorial as she tries to become a professional webtoon editor. The original work was certainly a successful TV show that gained massive popularity on Japan’s TBS channel in 2016. The production will modify the series for the viewers in Korea accordingly.
Kim Se Jeong will play Ohn Ma Eum, a newcomer who made her way into the competitive editorial department. She has cauliflower-like ears, a huge appetite, and keen smelling abilities. She was once a trainee on the national Judo team though she had to finish her Judo training due to an ankle injury. In short, she will be someone who dreams of the new job while delivering food to the editorial department.
Kim Se Jeong will greet viewers on Webtoon of the Day (literal title) ahead of the second season of The Uncanny Counter 2 to sum up. While The Uncanny Counter 2 is in crisis due to the uncertainty in Jo Byeong Kyu’s appearance, Webtoon of the Day will begin airing in the second half of the year.
