JTBC’s Fly High, Butterfly has confirmed the appearance of stars Kim Hyang-gi, Choi Daniel, Oh Yoon-ah, Shim Eun-woo, Park Jung-woo, Moon Tae-yoo, and Kim Ga-hee in the upcoming life-themed series.
Set primarily in a salon called “Fly High, Butterfly,” the drama unravels the stories of hairdressers who do their best in giving their customers self-confidence by transforming their appearance. The makeovers are extremely meticulous and beautiful that they can be likened to the metamorphosis of a butterfly.
Kim Hyang-gi (At Eighteen) will play the female protagonist Gi-beum, an aspiring hairstylist in her 20s who is taking an intern post at “Fly High, Butterfly.” Known as a talented rookie, Gi-beum works with three other interns named: Moo-yeol (Park Jung-woo, Team Bulldog: Off-duty Investigation), the youngest; Teacher Woo (Moon Tae-yoo, Hospital Playlist), the silent and quiet; and Soo-ri (Kim Ga-hee, At Eighteen) the kind and optimistic. During her time at the salon, Gi-beum slowly realizes that it takes a lot more than just skills to deal with different types of customers.
Meanwhile, Choi Daniel (The Ghost Detective) will take on the role of the male protagonist Gwang-soo. He is enthusiastic at his job and values the opinions of his co-workers. In training and guiding the interns, Gwang-soo teams up with Jen (Shim Eun-woo, The World of the Married), another professional hairstylist, and Michel (Oh Yoon-ah, Once Again), the director of their salon.
The production crew behind the series remarked, “Actors Kim Hyang-gi, Choi Daniel, Oh Yoon-ah, Shim Eun-woo, Park Jung-woo, Moon Tae-yoo, and Kim Ga-hee are confirmed to appear in Fly High, Butterfly, an unprecedented work that aims to highlight the challenges and triumphs that hairdressers experience during their usual days at the beauty salon. Please look forward to a unique, heart-tugging drama that will be centered on these hardworking hairstylists.”
Fly High, Butterfly is co-helmed by PDs Kim Da-ye of the JTBC Drama Festa: Hello Dracula (2020) and Kim Bo-kyung of The Wind Blows (2019). Penned by screenwriter Park Yeon-seon of Hello, My Twenties! (Seasons 1 & 2/2016, 2017), the drama is slated to premiere in the first half of 2021.
