tvN releases hilarious ‘Live Up To Your Name’ teaser

With less than a week prior to its premiere, Live Up To Your Name has another funny teaser featuring its two lead characters—a 17th-century acupuncturist and a modern day doctor played by Kim Nam-gil and Kim Ah-joong, respectively. The 39-seconds teaser shows Kim Nam-gil, wearing a traditional Joseon attire, on a rooftop who spreads his arms upon his entrance and smiles. Kim Ah-joong, in her her modern doctor gown, flips her hair as she joins him later.

Live Up To Your Name, also known as Deserving of the Name, is a time-slip tvN drama about real life historical figure Heo Im. He is considered the best acupuncturist in Joseon during his time but he has not received due recognition for his work because he is a lowly man born to a concubine. He travels 4oo years into the future and meets his modern-day counterpart, played by Kim Ah-joong, who does not believe in alternative medicine. The drama will air every Saturdays and Sundays starting August 12, 2017, taking over the time slot previously occupied by Secret Forest.


Me? Just an ordinary lad with an extraordinary (says this something called 'stereotype') habit of watching Korean dramas. It started with action-filled City Hunter and the rest, as they say, is history.
