On November 16, iMBC reported that the two actors have officially been cast in the lead roles of KBS2’s upcoming 2022 television drama Minamdang: Case Note (literal title). Based on a popular web novel of the same title, the upcoming series is a mystery-comedy that follows a series of events that unfold when a profiler-turned-shaman Nam Han-joon (played by Seo) and a violent crimes detective, Han Jae-hee (played by Oh) cross paths.
Blessed with good fortune, the fraudulent Han-joon uses his charisma skills as a profiler to deduce the desires and problems of his clients, becoming a successful shaman. Meanwhile, Jae-hee is described as a lighthearted and righteous character.
Earlier today (November 17), Newsen reported that Kwak Si-yang (Lovers of the Red Sky), former I.O.I member Kang Mina (Hotel Del Luna) and Kwon Soo-hyun (Move to Heaven) have also been confirmed to be joining the cast of Minamdang: Case Note. Notably, Kwon had previously appeared in dramas led by Seo, such as The Smile Has Left Your Eyes (2018) and Doom At Your Service (2021).
Minamdang: Case Note will be helmed by director Go Jae-hyun (Dinner Mate), and written by screenwriter Park Hye-jin (Ruler: Master of the Mask). The series will soon begin filming, and is set to premiere in the first half of 2022 on KBS2.
