JTBC’s upcoming drama “Disqualified from being Human” with Jeon do yeon and Ryu Jun Yeol revealed new details!
JTBC’s “Disqualified from being Human” (literal title) tells the story of average people who realize they haven’t become anything their entire lives and do their best to see the spotlight. Jeon Do Yeon plays Boo Jung, a woman in her forties who feels lost and like she doesn’t mind. Ryu Jun Yeol plays Kang Jae, a young man who is afraid of himself for fear that he cannot become anything.
The drama is staged by Heo Jin Ho, the director of successful films such as “Forbidden dream“, Princess Deokhye, “A Beautiful Spring Day” and “Christmas in August”. He draws special attention to this project as it is his first drama. The screenplay was written by Kim Ji Hye, who previously worked on such films as Wish, My Love, My Bride and Architecture 101.
Five years after her successful role in “Good Wife”, Jeon Do Yeon returns to drama as the ghostwriter Boo Jung. Although Boo Jung has come this far to do her best, she is someone who feels like she has lost all meaning in life when one day she faces her mistakes. As she looks at the steep decline of life in front of her, Boo Jung plunges directly into this darkness. Through Boo Jung, Jeon Do Yeon will be able to portray a wide range of emotional developments, ranging from loss and fear to emptiness and loneliness.
Ryu Jun Yeol will also make an intense change through his role as Kang Jae, a 27-year-old man who runs a ministry in which people act as the roles customers need. Kang Jae is a risk seeker who works to overcome poverty in order to achieve higher status. He tries to take various shortcuts while dreaming of being rich, but feels like he has achieved nothing when faced with a steep climb up battle. There he meets Boo Jung and has a change of heart.
The “Disqualified from being Human” Director Heo Jin Ho announced that he thought of Jeon Do Yeon and Ryu Jun Yeol as soon as he read the script. He explained, “Melodramas that have to get viewers to identify without the use of particularly stimulating devices are a difficult genre. We try to implement this through the action of these two actors, who always take an authentic approach. ”
He continued, “I’m so grateful and excited to be able to work with these two actors on my first drama. We try to keep the bitter stories of Boo Jung and Kang Jae warm. ”
