At 12:10 pm on the 2nd, episodes 1 and 2 of the MBN drama ‘The Driver’ will be broadcast consecutively. ‘The Driver’ is a human family drama that tells the story of a protagonist who has been fired from his job and begins driving as a substitute.
Let’s take a look at three things to look forward to in ‘The Driver’, which will color your home during the Lunar New Year holiday with a message about family, friends, and life.
◆ Kim Seung-woo’s first one-act play
‘The Driver’ is the first one-act play directed by Kim Seung-woo, who is actively working as a director and actor. Kim Seung-woo, who has proven his ability as a director by directing various works ranging from independent films to web dramas, challenged a new genre of one-act plays through ‘The Driver’. Kim Seung-woo said, “I started with the idea of making one short film for each episode. Fortunately, all 10 episodes seem to have been completed in the desired direction.” In addition, Kim Seung-woo said, “The characters in the play are the faces of our neighbors. I hope their words and actions can give viewers sympathy and comfort. Now that everyone is going through a difficult time, I hope that ‘The Driver’ will become a drama that resonates with you.”
◆ Luxury acting by luxury actors! Ahn Jae-wook X Lee Tae-ran X Ahn Gil-kang
In ‘The Driver’, Kim Seung-woo’s close actors gather attention. In addition to Ahn Jae-wook, Lee Tae-ran, Ahn Gil-gang, Lee Geun-hee, Gangnam-gil, Ko Su-hee, Gil Hye-yeon, Ye Ji-won, Oh Ha-young (Apink), Lee Geon-myeong, Lee Su-geun, Lee Jae-ryong, Lee Jong-hyuk, Lee Tae-seong, etc. They will appear as characters who lead each episode to enhance the perfection of the drama. Regarding this, Kim Seung-woo said, “A number of actors, including Ahn Jae-wook, the eternal protagonist in my heart, heard the request to appear and ran to one step. He willingly decided to appear without even looking at the script, and thanks to that, the whole work was brilliant.”
