A star-studded cast

With the rapid increase in popularity of K-dramas and films, it’s no longer too surprising to see Korean superstars share the screen, whether as siblings, partners, lovers or enemies. Recently, more dramas cast a star-studded lineup — and now, the new K-film Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint (working title) starring Lee Min Ho is following suit.

Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint cast and plot

For the big screen adaptation, REALIES Pictures — the production behind the series Along with the Gods — casted several Korean superstars and household names. Top-billing the cast is Ahn Hyo Seop (Dr. Romantic) who will be playing protagonist Kim Dok Ja, the office worker. This will also be Hyo Seop’s big screen debut.

Starring alongside him is Lee Min Ho (Pachinko) as Yoo Joong Hyuk, the main character in the web novel Dok Ja is reading. Joong Hyuk possesses great fighting skills, which he utilises to survive until the end.

Chae Soo Bin (I Am Not A Robot) meanwhile takes on the role of Yoo Sang Ah, Dokja’s coworker who stays with him throughout the entire journey in the post-apocalyptic world. On the other hand, Choi Young Joon (Vincenzo) will star as Han Myung Oh, Dok Ja’s superior at the company who gets swept up in mission scenarios.
