2017/06/28 | 2173 views | Permalink | Source

The new tvN drama "Live Up to Your Name" is on the go.

The script reading started on the 16th. "Live Up to Your Name" is a Josun drama about the best Josun doctor named Heo Im (Kim Nam-gil) and a modern doctor Yeon-kyeong (Kim Ah-joong) than spans over 400 years.

Pictures of Kim Nam-gil and Kim Ah-joong came up online. The pictures show Heo Im who fell to the 21st century from the sky and meeting Choi Yeon-kyeong. Heo Im looks puzzled as he just skipped 400 years of time but Choi Yeon-kyeong is looking at him coldly.

The script reading was a heated one as everyone was completely engaged in their characters.

The line-up of the movie is an outstanding one; Heo In-gyu who is Yoo Jin-oh, a medicinal doctor from the Josun and Yoo Jae-ha in the modern day as well as Moon Ga-young, Heo Im's trusty supporter. Other casts are Yoon Joo-sang, Kim Myung-gon, Uhm Hyo-sup, Maeng Sang-hoon, Lee Dae-yeon, Kim Byung-choon, Oh Dae-hwan, Tae Hang-ho and more.

Kim Nam-gil is starring in his first drama in four years. He takes on the role of Heo Im, a gifted acupuncturist but the wall of reality turns him rogue. He is perfect from head to toe but no one can read his mind. He looks like a doctor in the day but at night he goes around giving out treatments and collecting a good amount of fortune. The moment he's about to die, he ends up in Seoul 400 years later.

Kim Ah-joong is Choi Yeon-kyeong, a doctor as well. She's attractive enough to appeal to men and women together and she's a talented surgeon. She is a doctor that goes to clubs at night to release her stress. She overpowers her fellow doctors and has a coldness about her when she speaks. She's the newest 'girl crush'.

"Live Up to Your Name" begins in August at 9PM.
