MBC’s upcoming time-crossing, fantasy drama Kairos has unveiled the stills of Kang Seung-yoon, all suited up as Han Ae-ri’s best friend Im Gun-wook.
Kairos centers on two people from different timelines who mysteriously become able to communicate with each other and end up working together to save their missing loved ones. It stars Memorist’s Lee Se-young as Han Ae-ri, a student working multiple jobs to save enough money for her mother’s surgery, and Vagabond’s Shin Sung-rok as Kim Seo-jin, a success-driven family man working at a construction company. When Ae-ri’s mother disappears, she becomes distraught and gets in contact with Seo-jin, a man, who claims that he is living a month ahead of her time, searching for his abducted daughter.
The recently dropped still cuts show Kang Seung-yoon (Prison Playbook) as he gives life to Im Gun-wook. Like Ae-ri, Gun-wook juggles three jobs while studying. While he sometimes squabbles with his longtime friend, he constantly worries about Ae-ri, looks out for her, and will have her back, no matter what.
The photos from the drama magnify Gun-wook’s many sides, from his cheerful and laid-back personality to his inquisitive and serious nature. One photo raises anticipation and curiosity as he was photographed with a terrifying stare and a wounded and bruised face. The images establish that while he may be softhearted when it comes to people close to him, he will not hesitate to put up a fight when provoked. The viewers can look forward to his character who will greatly help Ae-ri in her search of her mother.
The production of Kairos will be spearheaded by Spring Turns to Spring’s Park Seung-woo and Crime Squad’s Lee Soo-hyun. It is slated to air as a Monday-Tuesday drama beginning October 26 at 9:30 p.m. KST.
