girls day Hyeri and Highlight’s Yoon Dojoon may soon return with a new drama!
On March 17, Sports Chosun announced that Hyeri and Yoon Doo Joon will star in the new MBC drama “Ildangbaek Butler” (literal title).
In response to the reports, a source from Hyeri’s Creative Group ING agency said, “Hyeri is positively considering the offer to star in MBC’s new drama ‘Ildangbaek Butler’.” A representative of Yoon DoojoonThe Around Us Entertainment agency also stated, “Yoon Doojoon has received an offer to star in ‘Ildangbaek Butler’ and he is currently reviewing the offer.”
“Ildangbaek Butler” tells the story of Butler Kim, who runs errands that start at a cost of 100 won (about 10 cents) per job, and funeral director Baek Dong Joo, who grants wishes to the dead, as ‘they’re running a business called Ildangbaek (meaning a person doing the work of 100, and in this case also referring to the fact that a ride costs 100 won).
Yoon Doojoon is in talks to play Butler Kim, Ildangbaek’is the one and only employee. Although he has kind eyes, Butler Kim also has a fierce side on the inside, and despite his easy appearance, he carries his weight in important moments. He ends up meeting Baek Dong Joo at the request of a client, and in three encounters, he learns a secret he can’t handle and becomes embroiled in Baek Dong Joo’s life.
Hyeri is in talks to play funeral director Baek Dong Joo, a bright and refreshing person who looks like an early spring and a delicate shoot, but is actually a firm and strong character. Baek Dong Joo also looks bland, but he isn’t, and she’s a badass who started playing table tennis when she was eight years old. After becoming a funeral director, Baek Dong Joo learns that she has a special ability: she can talk to the dead. The moment his warm hand touches the deceased’s face, there is a tingling signal and a flash of light like a switch turning on, and the deceased temporarily regains vitality and talks to him. Baek Dong Joo dutifully carries out the last wishes of the deceased.
Recently, Hyeri successfully concluded her historical drama “Bootleg alcohol.” With many successful works to his credit, including “My roommate is a Gumiho,” “Miss Lee,” “Answer 1988“, and more, viewers are looking forward to Hyeri’s next transformation.
Currently, Yoon Doojoon is gearing up for Highlight’s long-awaited comeback with his first full album “DAYDREAM.” Yoon Doojoon is also confirmed to be making his small screen comeback with the drama “There Is No Goo Pil Soo” (literal translation).
Stay tuned for more updates on the drama!
