Upcoming JTBC youth romance drama Live On has confirmed its lead actors—boy group NU’EST’s Hwang Min-hyun (known mononymously as Minhyun) and former child actress Jung Da-bin.
On June 26, it was announced that Minhyun and Jung Da-bin will take the lead in the drama that is being co-produced by three companies—Playlist Studio, known for popular web dramas like Love Playlist (2017); KeyEast Entertainment, who specialize in youth dramas like Dream High (2011) and At Eighteen (2019); and JTBC Studios.
Live On (tentative title) will revolve around two high schoolers—Baek Ho-rang and Go Eun-taek. While Ho-rang is one of the most popular girls in the school and a social media star, Eun-taek is a serious and detail-oriented leader of the school’s broadcasting club. Despite being popular for her good looks, Ho-rang only has one friend because of her narcissistic personality. Eun-taek, however, has a lot of friends. The two team up to catch a mysterious person when Ho-rang joins the broadcasting club.
Minhyun and Jung Da-bin will be playing Go Eun-taek and Baek Ho-rang, respectively. While this is Minhyun’s first official drama since debuting as an idol and appearing in Reckless Family 3 (2013), Jung Da-bin was most recently seen in the Netflix series Extracurricular (2020). VICTON’s Byungchan and former MOMOLAND member Yeonwoo are also in talks for the show.
Live On is aiming to premiere in the second half of 2020.
