It was about time to start getting the goods on "About Time", and yes, I am horrible. The drama has held its first script reading, and we have new stills as well as character information for some of our new faces. "About Time" is the story of a woman who can see people's lifespans and a man who can stop her own.
Since the main character descriptions for the four leads have been released, links to which you can find at the end of this piece, it is time to look at some of the supporting cast, which has quite a few lovely actors in it. The first script reading took place in February at Studio Dragon in Seoul. Along with Lee Sang-yoon, Lee Sung-kyung, Im Se-mi and Lee Seo-won were Kim Hae-sook, Na Young-hee, Jung Dong-hwan, and more, as well as PD Kim Hyeong-sik and writer Choo Hye-mi.
As for the characters, Kim Hae-sook plays Oh So-nyeo, a reliable ally of Choi Michaela (Lee Sung-kyung). Na Young-hee plays Michaela's irresponsible, spoiled mother, Jin Ra-hee. In the most shocking twist in Dramaland ever, Jung Dong-hwan plays Lee Do-ha's (Lee Sang-yoon) cold-hearted father, Lee Seon-moon.
I suppose we at least get one good character out of the three, but I'm hoping for more. The protagonists have life and death matters to deal with, so annoying relatives and friends will not make anything better for the heroes or for us. The drama is touted as a magical love story, so I hope said love will not be shaken by minor snags. "About Time" will begin airing on May 5th at 21:30 KST on tvN.
