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.

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. Indoor Enthusiast can be reached at [email protected]
