Upcoming fantasy blockbuster "The Item" has released stills of its script reading, and we have more character information along with new names. "The Item", which is based on a webtoon of the same name, is about two men and women with tangled fates, who dig into the conspiracies and secrets around ordinary objects with special powers.
Aside from leads Ju Ji-hoon, Jin Se-yeon, Kim Kang-woo and Kim Yoo-ri, and among others forming a great ensemble, we have some new names along with their roles. Shin Rin-ah plays Kang Da-in , the niece of Kang Gon (Ju Ji-hoon), while Lee Dae-yeon plays Shin Goo-cheol, Shin So-yeong's (Jin Se-yeon) father and a veteran investigator helping Kang Gon. Park Won-sang plays Goo Dong-yeong, a catholic priest with ties to So-yeong. Kim Byung-ki is Jo Gwan, the father of Kim Kang-woo's Jo Se-hwang. Also present were Lee Jung-hyun-I, who was recently in "Mr. Sunshine", and Jung In-gyeom.
The script reading reportedly went off without a hitch, while the webtoon's original author was also present at the event. He expressed his support for the drama adaptation, saying that, although he has only seen the script reading, he is very satisfied with that he sees. This is a thought I definitely share, as I love writer Jeong I-do-I's "Save Me", and the premise of "The Item", along with most of this cast. The series will follow "Less Than Evil" on MBC, so it should premiere around January.
