On March 15th actors Lim Il-gyu and Jung Sung-hoon-I were confirmed by their respective agencies for "No One But a Madman" which will begin broadcasting on MBC this coming June. The news followed a large number of minor casting announcements regarding local actors from the southeastern towns of Gyungnam and Changwon. The drama deals with office workers pondering major changes to their careers.
AdvertisementLim Il-gyu will play Oh Jae-il, an old hometown friend of the lead character played by Jung Jae-young. Despite their graduating from the same university, Lim Il-gyu's character works in sales rather than development. His attitude regarding his skill in acquiring new clients is also of much annoyance to the character played by Moon So-ri, who works in human resources. Lim Il-gyu's most recent projects were "The Running Mates: Human Rights" and "Psychopath Diary" both from 2019.
Jung Sung-hoon-I will play Yoon Gi-joon, who leads the product planning team. Though he will have interactions with all the leads, Jung Sung-hoon-I will most directly interact with the character played by Kim Ga-eun, who works in the same department. The last drama from Jung Sung-hoon-I was "The Goddess of Revenge" which ended earlier this year. He will also appear in "Devoted to Evil" which is expected to appear in movie theaters some time this year.
