With 10 days remaining before its premiere, upcoming tvN drama Chicago Typewriter finally have posters to promote itself further. Four posters of the drama were released on March 27, 2017, featuring the three main cast in one photo and each of them in three separate posters.
The first poster (above) shows a framed image of the three main characters who are all wearing old attires of the 1930s. The drama focuses on the stories of these characters, not during this period, but during the present day when they are living their reincarnated lives. They lived during the Japanese Occupation of Korea as writers but are reborn again having the same profession. A tagline on the poster reads: “Love’s miracle that begins with an old typewriter.”
The three other posters show each of the main characters in their modern attires. The main male character of the drama is Han Se-joo, a renowned writer who suddenly experiences a slump in his career. Yoo Ah-in (Six Flying Dragons), who plays the role, is seen on the second poster sitting with a typewriter beside him. The poster essentially describes his character: “Star writer who’s fallen into a slump.”
Han Se-joo is considered a genius with his writing skills, but as a case of a writer’s block threatens his career, he seeks the help of a ghostwriter. This writer is Yoo Jin-oh, who makes an unusual deal with Se-joo as he offers his service. Go Kyung-pyo (Jealousy Incarnate), who takes on the role of the ghostwriter, is seen on the next poster standing beside another typewriter. The poster reads: “Mysterious ghosotwriter who hides behind the star writer.”
The last poster shows Im Soo-jung (I’m Sorry, I Love You), who plays the role of Jeon Seol, another literary genius who’s an admirer of Han Se-joo but ends up being his anti-fan. Her poster says: “Legend in the writer fan world.” As in other posters, Im Soo-jung is posing with a typewriter beside her.
Chicago Typewriter is penned by the writer of Kill Me Heal Me and directed by the director of On The Way to the Airport. It will air every Fridays and Saturdays starting April 7, 2017.
