“Curtain Call” tells the story of an elderly hotelier from North Korea who doesn’t have much time left to live and a theatre actor who acts as her grandson in order to fulfill her final wish. Kang Ha Neul stars as Yoo Jae Heon, the unknown theatre actor who undertakes a life-changing endeavor, while Ha Ji Won stars as heiress Park Se Yeon, who manages the Nakwon Hotel owned by her grandmother Ja Geum Soon (played by Go Doo Shim).
Previously, Yoo Jae Heon agreed to play the part of Ja Geum Soon’s grandson Ri Moon Sung from North Korea. Following her grandmother’s request, Park Se Yeon will start to take care of Yoo Jae Heon. The newly released stills capture the two affectionately looking at each other while spending time together in Myeongdong window shopping and enjoying street foods. This affectionate atmosphere will continue until the night, raising anticipation for their chemistry.
However, during their sweet time together, Yoo Jae Heon will face a crisis when he naturally orders an iced Americano despite pretending to be someone who grew up in North Korea. Viewers are curious to find out if Park Se Yeon will eventually see through Yoo Jae Heon’s acting.
The production team shared, “Yoo Jae Heon will become confused with reality while portraying Ri Moon Sung who does not know anything about the culture of South Korea, delivering great tension in the process.”
“Curtain Call” episode 3 will air on November 7 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
