JYJ’s Jaejoong, Ji Sung, Choi Kang Hee, Wang Jihye, Park Young Gyu, Cha Hwa Yeon, and Kim Chung Ee gathered for the first time to read through the script for their upcoming drama, ’Protect the Boss‘.
On June 29th, the script reading was held at a drama practice room in the SBS Ilsan Production Center. Though it was their first meeting, the actors were full of energy and maintained a friendly atmosphere throughout the meeting.
Ji Sung sported an interesting hairstyle reminiscent of Song Tae Seob from ‘Slam Dunk‘. On the other hand, Choi Kang Hee stepped away from her trendy bob hairstyle with her long straight hair and bangs.
While this drama is Jaejoong’s first Korean drama, he completed the script reading comfortably and naturally, setting a good start for himself. He will be playing the “prince of the business world” ‘Cha Moo Won‘ who often quarrels with his cousin ‘Cha Ji Hun‘ (played by Ji Sung).
Wang Jihye read her lines full of energy and the script-reading glowed with the rehearsals of veteran actors Park Young Gyu, Cha Hwa Yeon, and Kim Chung Ee.
A production company representative stated,
“Since ‘Protect the Boss’ is a sweet and lively romantic comedy, the excitement from the comedy exploded on set. The actors and production crew of ‘Protect the Boss’ are full of anticipation as the official filming has begun. We ask for your interest and anticipation for ‘Protect the Boss’ which will bring new and pleasant laughter into your homes.“
‘Protect the Boss’ is the follow-up drama to ‘City Hunter‘ and will begin airing on August 3rd.
