Ahn Hyo-seop, Lee Min-ho, BLACKPINK’s Jisoo and Nana will work together in “Omniscient Reader”
According to the film industry on October 24th, Ahn Hyo-seop, Lee Min-ho, BLACKPINK Jisoo, Nana, Chae Soo-bin, Jung Sung-il, and Park Ho-san have confirmed their appearances in “Omniscient Reader”, and are currently coordinating the details.
Based on a popular web novel of the same name serialized since February 2018, “Omniscient Reader” depicts what happens when the main character Kim Dok-ja tries to save the world that has changed according to the content of the novel he’s reading.
In this movie, Ahn Hyo-seop plays Kim Dok-ja, who fights alongside Yoo Jung-hyuk, the main character of the novel he’s reading, and other friends to turn the world around. Moreover, this is also Ahn Hyo-seop’s movie debut.
Lee Min-ho will take on the role of Yoo Jung-hyuk, the main character of a novel called “3 Ways To Survive A Destroyed World”. Yoo Jung-hyuk feels responsible for saving the world because he has the ability to return to life even after his death. As Jung-hyuk has repeated his life endlessly, he becomes cold-hearted. As such, anticipation is high for the chemistry between Lee Min-ho and Ahn Hyo-seop.
BLACKPINK Jisoo will make her screen debut in earnest with “Omniscient Reader”. She will appear as Lee Ji-hye, who leads the story together with Kim Dok-ja and Yoo Jung-hyuk. It is said that Jisoo agreed to the casting offer because she’s a big fan of the original work. With Jisoo’s participation, the movie is expected to attract keen global attention.
Nana plans to portray Jung Hee-won, an upright character who cannot stand injustice. Working with “Omniscient Reader” production company for her previous movie “Confession”, Nana received an offer for the project this time, raising expectations for their synergy. Chae Soo-bin plays coworker Yoo Sang-ah who joins Kim Dok-ja on his journey. Jung Sung-il, who rose to stardom after starring in Netflix’s “The Glory” as Ha Do-young, and Park Ho-san, known for villain roles, will raise the tension of “Omniscient Reader” with their presence.
Produced during the slump of the Korean film industry, “Omniscient Reader” is expected to become a blockbuster as it is produced with a large investment of 30 billion won, an experienced production team, and a splendid cast lineup with Hallyu stars and a famous K-pop idol.
After completing its casting work, “Omniscient Reader” is wrapping up the pre-production stage for the filming to begin this December.
