The new drama ‘Island’ (directed by Bae Jong), which has been warmed up for casting and production, is a fantasy action drama based on the Naver webtoon of the same name by Yoon In-wan and Yang Kyung-il.
‘Island’ is set on the beautiful island of Jeju Island in the southern sea, it depicts the sad and bizarre journey of characters who have a destiny to fight against the evil that is trying to destroy the world.
Kim Nam-gil, a luxury actor who boasted an unlimited acting spectrum across the TV screen and screen, including the dramas ‘The Fiery Priest‘ and ‘The Legend of the Nameless’ as well as the movie ‘The Shameless‘, fights against evil in ‘Island’ in preparation for the end of the world, but fights with humans. He plays ‘Ban’, who was raised as an impossible and tragic existence. Ban is a character destined to protect the world, and he agonizes over what values he should protect even when he abandons himself. I am already looking forward to how Kim Nam-gil will express the changing character’s emotional lines.
Lee Da-hee transforms into a third-generation chaebol and teacher ‘Won Mi-Ho’. Won Mi-ho is a person who lives an unwanted life in Jeju Island without knowing her fate. Lee Da-hee, who perfectly melted into the draama with her irreplaceable acting skills in dramas ‘Luca: The Beginning‘, ‘Search WWW’, and ‘Beauty Inside‘, pay attention to the acting chemistry that will be shown with Kim Nam-gil in ‘Island’.
Cha Eun-woo takes on the role of ‘John’, a hip Catholic exorcist. In the drama, John is a character with a noble vocation to protect life and purify evil, and is a character with a grim and dark past behind him. He has perfected his character in various genres such as dramas ‘True Beauty‘, ‘Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryeong‘, and ‘My ID is Gangnam Beauty‘.
Seong-jun took on the role of ‘Gungtan’, who was raised as a slayer to defeat evil with Ban (Kim Nam-gil). However, after the event that splits the fate, he confronts the class and gives an exhilarating twist to the flow of the drama, causing tension. Seong-jun, who has left a strong impact in each work he appears in such as movies ‘Ghost Mansion’, ‘The Villain’, and the drama ‘High Society‘, stimulates curiosity about how he will express the subtle psychological changes of Gungtan.
