“Revenant” has released photos and a making-of clip from its first script reading!
Written by famous scriptwriter Kim Eun Hee of “Sign,” “Ghost,” “Signal,” and “Kingdom,” SBS’s “Revenant” is an occult mystery thriller in which a woman possessed by an evil spirit and a man who can see those evil spirits inside human bodies dig into the mysterious deaths surrounding five divine objects.
Last November, the cast and crew of “Revenant” held their first script reading with director Lee Jung Rim, writer Kim Eun Hee, and lead actors Kim Tae Ri, Oh Jung Se, Hong Kyung, Park Ji Young, Kim Won Hae, and Ye Soo Jung. Also present for the reading was Jin Sun Kyu, who will make a special appearance in the drama.
Kim Tae Ri stars as Goo San Young, whom she describes as a young woman in her twenties who works part-time during the day and studies for her civil service exam at night. However, she comes to receive a keepsake from her late father that she should have never received as it causes an evil spirit to instantly possess her. Kim Tae Ri will lead the drama as both Goo San Young who survives a tough lifestyle by doing her best and Goo San Young who has been possessed by an evil spirit.
Oh Jung Se will play folklore professor Yeom Hae Sang who has been able to see ghosts and gods since he was younger. Due to this unique ability, Yeom Hae Sang has found it difficult to get along with others and instead prioritizes his folklore research.
Hong Kyung takes on the role of elite police detective Lee Hong Sae, who has clear self-control and a tough attitude that focuses on performance and results. However, his personality slowly starts to change when he meets his partner Seo Mun Chun (Kim Won Hae) and encounters a variety of mysterious cases.
Jin Sun Kyu will make a special appearance in “Revenant” as Goo Kang Mo, Goo San Young’s mysterious folklorist father. Goo Kang Mo risks everything he has to catch evil spirits, but ultimately meets an untimely death. Despite Jin Sun Kyu only making a special appearance, Goo Kang Mo will prove to be a key player in helping solve the mystery of the evil spirits.
Additional cast members include Park Ji Young as Goo San Young’s mother Yoon Kyung Mun, Kim Won Hae as Lee Hong Sae’s partner Seo Mun Chun, and Ye Soo Jung as Goo San Young’s grandmother Kim Seok Ran.
The drama’s newly released making-of clip shows a different look of the first script reading, starting with the cast and crew happily greeting one another. Following the reading, the main cast describes their characters and shares excitement for the drama’s upcoming premiere.
