Kwon Hwa-woon and Bang Min-ah are confirmed as the lead stars of the new MBC series Please Check the Event.
Please Check the Event is a four-episode television project that follows the emotional journey that will unfold when two former lovers pretend to be together to head on a couple’s trip they won at an event.
Kwon Hwa-woon (Mouse) will transform into Park Do-kyum, the leader and vocalist of an indie band. While he seems haughty and feisty, he has a romantic side that comes out during the most important moments. He will be joined by Bang Min-ah (My Absolute Boyfriend), who will essay the role of Ha Song-yi, a woman with a confident and youthful charm. She works as a botanical garden coordinator and passionately believes her mother’s words that people are capable of betrayal but not plants. She finds herself struggling after breaking up with her boyfriend.
The drama’s production crew shared, “The casting of Bang Min-ah and Kwon Hwa-woon seems to have completed a fresh melodrama lineup. Please look forward to their chemistry.”
Please Check the Event is a work that received acclaim for its witty concept and interesting story development in last year’s MBC Drama Screenplay Contest.
