Following news of her involvement in the upcoming KBS Drama Special titled Thief Sleep, rising actress Kim Bo-ra has now officially confirmed her appearance as the drama’s female lead.
Thief Sleep will tell the story of a couple who have broken up but later find themselves living in the same house due to strange circumstances. Staying under one roof, they slowly begin knowing each other better and deeper than when they were still in a relationship. However, getting accustomed to their current setup is one thing, but doing so while having to bury back all resurfacing feelings is a different story.
Kim Bo-ra has signed up to play Hong-joo, the female protagonist who works as an assistant at a hair shop. Despite being in the same post for already four years, Hong-joo has still not been promoted to the designer position as a result of some secret manipulation that is happening within the management office. However, she is determined to reach her career goals someday even if it means that she has to endure a low quality of life for the time being. Practically bankrupt, Hong-joo resorts to sneaking in and secretly crashing inside her ex-boyfriend’s apartment at night while he is working the graveyard shift at a convenience store.
Kim started her career as a child actress and played the young version of female leads in various dramas, including Wedding (2005) and Royal Family (2011). She then transitioned to playing teenage roles in Who Are You: School 2015, My Only Love Song (2017), and Avengers Social Club (2017). In 2018, Kim gained positive attention for her performance in the hit drama SKY Castle and has since been pulled in to play starring roles. Her latest appearances were in the series Touch (2020) and SF8 (Episode: Joan’s Galaxy, 2020).
Meanwhile, earlier reports revealed that Judge vs. Judge actor Dong Ha is set to portray the male protagonist named Lee Nam. He is a fourth-year business administration student who has not bothered to change the passcode to his apartment even if his ex-girlfriend knows the numerical combination to unlock it.
Along with a lineup of highly entertaining single-episode features, Thief Sleep is slated to air in the 11th season of KBS Drama Special this year.
