Confirmations are in for rising actors Kim Hye-yoon and Kim Ro-woon to star in A Day Found By Chance, the upcoming TV adaptation of a fantasy school romance webtoon titled July Found By Chance.
The drama tells the story of students who find out that they are actually characters in a manhwa (Korean comic) and try to change their already predetermined fates.
Kim Hye-yoon will be playing her first ever lead role in the new series as Eun Dan-oh, the only daughter of a wealthy family who is brave and confident. She will not hesitate to change her preset life after realizing that she is a character in a manhwa especially since she is sick and just an “extra character” who does not even have much time to live.
Kim was last seen in the critically acclaimed series SKY Castle, her performance in which earned her the Best New Actress prize at the 55th Baeksang Arts Awards.
Meanwhile, Kim Ro-woon (also known by his stage name Rowoon as member of the boy group SF9) signed up for the role of Haru, a boy who falls deeply in love with Eun Dan-oh. The singer-actor will also be starring as the male lead in a drama for the first time through A Day Found By Chance. His most recent drama appearance was in Where Stars Land.
In addition to Rowoon and Kim Hye-yoon, rookie actor Lee Jae-wook has also been confirmed to star in the new series. He will play Baek Kyung, the fiance of Eun Dan-oh. Lee made his acting debut last year in Memories of the Alhambra and quickly managed to secure a major role in the ongoing romantic drama Search: WWW.
Directed by Kim Sang-hyub of The King Loves, A Day Found By Chance will premiere in September on MBC’s Wednesday-Thursday time slot which is currently occupied by One Spring Night and will be taken over by Rookie Historian Goo Hae-ryung in July.
