It has been announced that the cast of the webtoon-based drama Aqua Man has expanded. As previously reported, Aqua Man will feature Hongseok and Jung Woo-jin as the show’s two leads. Among the additional cast, Shin So-Hyun and Lee So-Hee take on main roles for female characters.
Lee So-Hee portrays Choi So Ra, a close friend of the protagonist, Shin Na Roo (played by Jung Woo-Jin). She is the one who changes Shin Na Roo’s perception of women. Throughout his life, Shin Na Roo believed that a woman needed to be protected from men. The strong personality of Choi So Ra has changed Shin Na Roo’s perspective.
Shin So Mi, played by Shin So-Hyun, is introduced to the protagonist, Shin Na Roo while working in the bakery as a part-timer. Her initial attitude toward Shin Na Roo was one of hostility, but as she observed him toiling away, she gradually warmed up to him.
Aqua Man will premiere on kakaoTV sometime in 2022, but no specific date has been announced just yet.
