Sung Hoon and Han Bo-reum will be teaming up for a new drama to be released by cable channel MBN in partnership with Dramax. The series is a romantic comedy titled Level Up, which follows the struggle of a restructuring expert and a game lover to save a dying company and the romance that stems from their partnership.
Sung Hoon signed up to play Ahn Dante, the ace director of Yoo Seong CRC, a company specializing in restructuring other companies on the verge of bankruptcy. He is cold-blooded but is excellent at work and his charm is something that people around him cannot simply resist. Sung last played a leading role on TV in OCN’s My Secret Romance in 2017 but he starred in Netflix’s The Sound of Your Heart 2 that was released last year.
Meanwhile, Han Bo-reum took on the role of Shin Yeon-hwa, the chief development officer of Joy Buster, a gaming company that is facing financial difficulties. She will work with Ahn Dante to develop a game that might help save the company and falls for him in the process. Known for her role in Go Back Couple, Han recently appeared in Memories of the Alhambra and Children of a Lesser God. Level Up marks her first ever leading role in a drama.
A representative of the production team said that Sung Hoon and Han Bo-reum will show not only their great chemistry, but also their unmatched teamwork.
Level Up is set to premiere on July 10.
