Kim Se Jong will return to the small screen with ‘The Office Blind Date.’
According to Jellyfish Entertainment, Kim was officially cast to play Shin Ha Ri, the quick and lively female lead of The Office Blind Date.
This new romantic comedy series revolves around the CEO and his employee who met on a blind date under their false identity. The original web novel was published in 2017, and the webtoon version was released the following year. These two versions have garnered 320 million cumulative views worldwide.
Shin Ha Ri, played by Kim, lacks 2% in everything. In her family, her perfect mother and sister are at the center of attention. In school, a friend from the chaebol family overshadows her. But she still is the most energetic and optimistic person you’ll ever meet. One day, she goes on a blind date on behalf of her chaebol friend, and there, she meets her boss Kang Tae Moo.
Earlier, Ahn Hyo Seop has officially joined the project to play Kang Tae Moo, the perfect guy who has it all. Naturally, attention focuses on the sweet romance Kim and Ahn will present.
“I had so much fun reading the script. And I was convinced that the writer, director, and the actors will have a lot of fun working together,” Kim shared. “It’s my first time starring in a rom-com, so I’m really nervous. But I’m preparing so hard, from my looks to my acting, so please look forward to it a lot.”
The Office Blind Date will start filming in the second half of this year and be aired earlier next year.
