Lee David joins Park Seo-joon in upcoming webtoon-based drama ‘Itaewon Class’

On October 15, Lee David has been confirmed to join the cast of the upcoming JTBC drama Itaewon Class. Lee recently made headlines because of his impactful performance as the serial killer-turned-malevolent spirit Seol Ji-won in blockbuster drama Hotel Del Luna.

Itaewon Class, adapted from a webtoon of the same name, follows Park Sae-roy (Park Seo-joon) as he overcomes various challenges after the death of his father and opens a restaurant in Itaewon, a popular tourist destination in Seoul. Meanwhile, Lee David will play a fund manager named Ho-jin, Park Sae-roy’s classmate who ends up working at his restaurant. Sae-roy and Ho-jin’s bromance is being touted as one of the highlights of the show.

Itaewon Class is already being hotly anticipated as it will mark Park Seo-joon’s (What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim) return to the small screen after one year. Additionally, Kim Da-mi (best known for starring in the movie The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion), Kim Dong-hee (SKY Castle), Yoo Jae-myung (My Fellow Citizens), and Kwon Na-ra (Doctor Prisoner) will be appearing in the series.

Directed by the Love In The Moonlight PD Kim Sung-yoon, Itaewon Class is expected to premiere in February 2020.

Indoor Enthusiast (Esha) is a staff writer at Kdramapal. She is responsible for bringing all the latest happenings in Kdramaland, as well as features and recaps of currently airing dramas, to the readers of the site. As a gender studies student, she loves analyzing K-dramas through the lens of gender politics and social justice. You're most likely to find her droning on and on about how Ji Hae-soo from It's Okay That's Love and Sung Bora from Reply 1988 are the best heroines to ever grace our screens. Her favorite dramas tend to be thrillers like Secret Forest and Signal, as well as heartwarming shows like Misaeng. When not in the mood for either of those, you can find her binging on shows about female friendships a la Age of Youth or rom-coms that come with sprinklings of feminism, like Because This Life Is My First. She lives in India, spends all her free time reading books, and would love nothing more than to meet Gong Hyo-jin and sign away her life's earnings to the actress.
