SBS’s ‘Racket Boys’ previews Kim Min-seok’s cameo appearance in new stills

SBS’s sports drama Racket Boys is getting a special guest!

Lovestruck in the City (2020–2021) star Kim Min-seok reportedly accepted the request of producing director (PD) Jo Young-kwang to make a cameo in PD Jo’s upcoming drama Racket Boys. Kim worked with the director in the 2017 drama Defendant.

The story follows the journey of badminton rookies in the highly competitive sports industry. It stars Kim Sang-kyung (Miss Lee), Oh Na-ra (Chip In), Tang Jun-sang (Move to Heaven), Son Sang-yeon (Failing in Love), Choi Hyun-wook (Taxi Driver), Kim Kang-hoon (Mouse), Lee Jae-in (Undercover), and Lee Ji-won (The Uncanny Counter).

In the released stills, Kim looks at home in his character Hun-hoon. Hun-hoon approaches Cha Mi-kyung, who plays the tough grandmother Oh Mae. She left her village and is wandering the streets of the city, and Hun-hoon attempts to help her find her way. Kim Min-seok and Cha Mi-kyung are expected to create a heartwarming and comic scene together.

It was Princess Lulu who first introduced her to Korean dramas but it was Yoon Ji-hoo from Boys Over Flowers who enticed her to stay in K-dramaland. She writes news and features for Kdramapal, which combines two of her most favorite things in the world—writing and K-dramas (look who's living the dream). The name Luna literally translates to "moon" and nothing special; she just likes writing at night.
