The drama tells the thrilling yet passionate story of the relative deprivation we all suffer from, the thirst of painful desires, and our struggles to quench that thirst. The project will be led by the fantastic duo director Jin Hyung Wook and Moon Young Nam, who previously worked on “Liver or Die” together.
Seo Ji Hye will be playing Jo Eun Gang, a tutor who wants to be a teacher but always fails to get her teacher certification examination. She seems simple and calm on the outside, but she has flaming passion in her heart, and she will do anything in order to achieve her goal.
Lee Sung Jae will be taking on the role of Jin Nam Cheol, the brother-in-law of Go Cha Won (Lee Sang Woo). He is the eldest son of a poor family who is controlled by his in-laws. He took over his father-in-law’s business that is related to scrap waste, but he has no actual authority, and he is a dispirited man who always apologizes to people.
Hong Soo Hyun will be transforming into Han Ba Da, a jewelry designer with a glamorous appearance and a cheerful personality who is considerate and never bears any grudges. Although she grew up in a wealthy family, she tried to give up on marriage after her mother collapsed just before the wedding. However, she ended up getting married with the persuasion of her husband Go Cha Won, but she’s having a difficult marriage life.
Lee Sang Woo will be playing Han Ba Da’s husband Go Cha Won who is a dermatologist. He became a doctor as expected of his family, but he is always planning different businesses because he doesn’t like his job. He has good looks, a kind heart, and great humor, but he’s always in a dilemma because he’s at the center of conflict between his mother and wife.
The production team shared, “As Seo Ji Hye, Lee Sung Jae, Hong Soo Hyun, and Lee Sang Woo, who give faith with just their names, have joined ‘Red Balloon,’ they made an even more fantastic combination with writer Moon Young Nam and director Jin Hyung Wook. Please look forward to ‘Red Balloon,’ which will bring you more laughter and emotions with various characters and immersive developments.”
