Seo Hyun-jin, Ra Mi-ran lead script reading for upcoming drama ‘Black Dog’

On November 1, tvN’s new drama Black Dog shared photos of its script reading session led by Seo Hyun-jin, Ra Mi-ran, and Ha Joon.

Black Dog revolves around a high school teacher, played by Seo Hyun-jin (The Beauty Inside), who has accepted a part-time position at a private school. Seo’s character has nurtured the dream of becoming a teacher since childhood but finds that in the real world, the pressure on teachers is no different from the stress faced by the students. She struggles to keep her dreams of being a teacher alive while dealing with the intense politics of private high schools. The drama follows her journey as she overcomes challenges and grows both as a teacher and as a person.

Ra Mi-ran (Melting Me Softly) stars as Seo’s workaholic department head, who tirelessly strives to help her students. She becomes a mentor figure to Seo’s character during the course of the series.

Meanwhile, Ha Joon (Arthdal Chronicles) takes on the role of a Korean language teacher who is popular among students for his teaching as well as his looks. His character is an idealist who believes that hard work and positivism can break through the politics of the school.

The show’s director Hwang Joon-hyuk, screenwriter Park Joo-yeon, and supporting cast members Lee Chang-hoon and Jung Hae-kyun, Kim Hong-fa, Yoo Min-kyu, Park Ji-hwan, Jo Sun-joo, Lee Yoon-hee, Heo Tae-hee, and Ye Soo-jung were also present during the table read.

Black Dog will premiere on December 16 as a Monday-Tuesday drama, following Kim Sun-ho and Moon Geun-young’s Catch The Ghost.
