Joo Sang Wook, Kim Hyun Joo, Ji Soo, Park Si Yeon, and Kim Tae Hoon explain their complex Fantastic characters
One of the biggest appeals of upcoming romantic melodrama Fantastic is its talented cast lead by Joo Sang Wook (Good Doctor, Birth of a Beauty), Kim Hyun Joo (Boys Over Flowers, Cruel Palace), Park Si Yeon (Greatest Marriage), Kim Tae Hoon (One More Happy Ending), and Ji Soo(Scarlet Heart: Ryeo), and in these special behind-the-scenes videos we get to hear each individual actor's in-depth thoughts about their character.
Joo Sang Wook’s character is called the “Great Star of the Universe, Foot-Caprio,” and he is a a popular, yet untalented, actor who bumps heads and starts to fall in love with Kim Hyun Joo.
Kim Hyun Joo’s character is a talented drama writer who only has six months left to live. She struggles with her terminal diagnosis, but is determined to live her life to the fullest, even finding love in the most unexpected place with Joo Sang Wook's character.
Ji Soo plays a smart, good looking young lawyer who is innocent when it comes to love. He will be in a noona romance with Park Si Yeon.
Park Si Yeon will be playing Baek Seol, the wife of a man from a prominent political family. At first she is “cosplaying as a good wife and mother,” but she can only put on a show for so long. She was once a hot-headed bad girl, but now she must hide her true self in order to play the part of a calm and modest politician's wife. She eventually finds true love and friendship, experiencing an awakening to what life has to offer.
Kim Tae Hoon plays an eccentric doctor named Hong Joon Ki, who is treating the female lead's terminal illness. He survived cancer, himself, and is now described as a very positive person who is the perfect example of "well-dying," or living life to the fullest in the face of death. His warm character will be in a “special love triangle” with the leads.
