Seo In-guk and Kang Mi-na, who have many similarities in appearance, work together as brother and sister in the new drama “Café Minamdang”.
Actors Seo In-guk, Oh Yeon-seo, Kwak Si-yang, Kang Mi-na, Kwon Soo-hyun and director Go Jae-hyun attended the online press conference for KBS 2TV’s new Monday-Tuesday drama “Café Minamdang” on June 27th. Based on a web novel, “Café Minamdang” is a mystery-comedy drama that centers around a former profiler who becomes a shaman.
In the drama, Seo In-guk plays Nam Han-joon, a profiler-turned shaman who identifies customers’ needs and solves their problems with his amazing speech skills and professional spirit. Meanwhile, Kang Mi-na appears as Nam Han-joon’s younger sister Nam Hye-jun, a former NIS genius hacker.
At the press conference, Seo In-guk introduced his character and shared, “The hacking skills of Nam Han-joon’s sister Nam Hye-jun help him perform his abilities as a profiler. That’s why the customers are always surprised and curious about ‘How does this guy even know such things?’. His words are enough to create illusions.”
Regarding the reason why he decided to appear in “Café Minamdang”, the actor said, “After looking through the script, I immediately thought ‘Nam Han-joon is me’. I was extremely greedy to express this character”. Director Go Jae-hyun said, “We thought of Seo In-guk for Nam Han-joon while planning this work. I really appreciate his willingness to accept the role.”
Kang Mi-na, who transforms into Seo In-guk’s sister in the drama, smiled and said, “I was really excited when I heard that In-guk oppa would appear as am Han-joon. Back then, when we were in the same company, many people told me that his image is similar to mine. After filming the drama, I feel like I’ve become his real younger sister.”
Upon hearing that the two look alike, Seo In-guk said, “I have a mole under my eye. That’s why all of my family members in the drama must also have a mole. Both Mi-na and the actress who plays my mother have moles drawn under their eyes”, drawing laughter.
Lastly, Seo In-guk expressed his confidence in the drama. “Café Minamdang” airs its first episode at 9:50 p.m on June 27th.
