KBS2’s new Wednesday and Thursday drama The Chronicle of Haunted Real Estate has unveiled its first batch of stills featuring the main cast during their first script reading session.
The Chronicle of Haunted Real Estate will follow a real estate agent who exorcises spirits dwelling in haunted properties to sell them and a swindler who uses ghosts to earn money. It stars Jang Na-ra (Oh My Baby) and CNBLUE’s Jung Yong-hwa (The Package) in the lead roles. Other cast members who joined the two in the event include Kang Mal-geum (Please Don’t Date Him), Kang Hong-seok (The King: Eternal Monarch), Ahn Gil-kang (Tale of the Nine Tailed), and Heo Dong-won (Missing: The Other Side).
The session started with each cast and crew member’s short introduction of themselves and polite greetings. Director Park Jin-suk, who will helm the drama, has expressed his determination to make everyone comfortable in the set, saying, “I will try my best to make it a pleasant filming set where you can come with a warm heart.”
Jang Na-ra will play Hong Ji-ah, the president of a big real estate firm called Daebak Real Estate. She inherited her exorcism abilities from her mother, and she uses these to cleanse the properties before selling them. She is beautiful and smart, but she is also hot tempered. Jang praised the story, saying, “It’s different from the scripts I’ve seen so far.”
Jung Yong-hwa, who is returning to the small screen after four years, is set to play the con artist Oh In-beom, who pretends to be an exorcist to extort money from people. He is a quick-thinker and has high observation and logical abilities, making him a perfect candidate in the field. Jung has expressed fondness for the series, calling it “a drama with various charms.”
Kang Mal-geum will play Ji-ah’s secretary, Kang Hong-seok as Heo Sil-jang, Ahn Gil-kang as Do Hak-seong, and Heo Dong-won as Kim Tae-jin. With their solid acting skills and distinct personalities, they are set to deliver a notable performance and make the story better.
The production crew said, “The Chronicle of Haunted Real Estate is a new concept of exorcism drama that examines human history through the subject of exorcism. In the script reading, the actors showed passionate acting to the entire production team and staff. It will be remembered as a good drama.”
The Chronicle of Haunted Real Estate is scheduled to premiere on April 14.
