Actors Lee Sang-yeob and Kim So-hye will work together in KBS2’s new drama “Pure Boxer”.
KBS2’s new drama “Pure Boxer” announced on Oct 18th, “Lee Sang-yeob and Kim So-hye have confirmed their appearances.”
KBS2’s “Pure Boxer”, scheduled to air in the first half of 2023, is a sports growth drama based on the novel “Pure Boxer Lee Kwon-suk” by Choo Jong-nam, which is the prize-winning work of the 2nd Kyobo Bookstore Story Contest.
Lee Sang-yeob plays Kim Tae-young, an S&P sports agent who attracts talented players and retires them in a short period of time. Kim Tae-young is a scumbag agent who does not blink an eye when it comes to players’ advancement and money. He approaches genius boxer Lee Kwon-suk, who disappeared 3 years ago for top pitcher Kim Hee-won.
Lee Sang-yeob, who created impressive characters in each drama such as “Once Again”, “Good Casting”, “On the Verge of Insanity” and “Eve”, is expected to present dramatic tension alongside Kim So-hye.
Kim So-hye takes on the role of genius boxer Lee Kwon-suk, who emerged as a boxing star at the age of 17. After suddenly disappearing ahead of the Grand Slam, Lee Kwon-suk meets Kim Tae-young, an evil agent who was living a new life, and faces an inflection point in her life.
Kim So-hye, who debuted as a member of girl group I.O.I through Mnet’s “Produce 101” in 2016, turned into an actress after finishing group activities. Since then, she has been expanding her acting spectrum by appearing in dramas such as “Ambergris”, “Best Chicken”, “How to Buy a Friend”, “Her Bucket List” and the movie “Moonlit Winter”. Therefore, expectations are high for her performance in “Pure Boxer”.
“Pure Boxer” will be an exciting and honest portrayal of the beautiful growth of young people who are struggling between their talents and what they really want to do and the lives of people in the sports world.
“Pure Boxer”, which Lee Sang-yeob and Kim So-hye have confirmed to appear in, will soon begin filming and will premiere in the first half of 2023.
