Upcoming drama Abyss will have its much-awaited premiere on May 6. It revolves around two people who are mysteriously murdered but come back to life through the power of a soul-reviving bead, albeit in other people’s bodies.
Park Bo-young (Strong Woman Do Bong Soon) and Ahn Hyo-seop (Thirty But Seventeen) play the reincarnations of main character Go Se-yeon and Cha Min, respectively. On April 30, the drama released news stills that show these characters’ appearance before they are killed and reincarnated by the magical bead.
The original Go Se-yeon is played by Kim Sa-rang (Secret Garden) and known to many as a gorgeous and hotshot prosecutor who has men following her all around, including Cha Min (played by Ahn Se-ha, Big Issue). Cha Min is a wealthy man as the heir to a famous cosmetics company and is also smart like Go Se-yeon, but he is an unattractive individual whom peopled unconsciously hated.
According to the production team, the stills above represent scenes of the main character’s college lives from ten years ago. Go Se-yeon is shown surrounded by many men who are holding bouquets of flowers that are meant for her. Cha Min, who is revealed to be her childhood friend, is one of the men following her around. He is ignored by Go Se-yeon, and so are the other guys.
The scene was taken at a university in Sinchon. The production team and students were impressed by how Kim Sa-rang pulled off portraying her character.
