Bae Suzy and Nam Joo-hyuk team up to “change the world” in their upcoming drama “Start-Up.” Here’s what we know about the tvN drama set to premiere next month.
Bae Suzy stars as Seo Dal-mi, a university dropout who aspires to become a CEO. She takes on part-time jobs in order to open up her own start-up company.
Meanwhile, Nam Joo-hyuk is Nam Do-san, a math genius and the founder of Samsan Tech. Despite his early success, his company has not been doing well.
The drama also stars Kim Seon-ho and Kang Han-na. Kim Seon-ho is Han Ji-pyeong, an investment manager at a venture capital company. Meanwhile, Kang Han-na is Won In-jae, a second generation CEO. Despite being born privileged, she struggles to succeed on her own in the start-up world.
What is ‘Start-Up’
As the teaser for the drama mentions, start-up refers to “a company that has begun with revolutionary technology and ideas.” The setting for the drama is a fictional Silicon Valley called Sandbox.
Seo Dal-mi is “the CEO who will change the world,” while Nam Do-san is “the developer who will make it possible.” Together they will launch the next big start-up.
In the latest teaser video, the four main characters reveal their individual motivations to succeed.
According to Soompi, Seo Dal Mi “wants to turn the tables.” Meanwhile, Nam Do-san wishes to shine again. Han Ji-pyeong wants to repay his debt, while Won In-jae desires “to earn freedom and success with her own hands.”
A Visual Feast
There are two things that make this drama worth the wait. The setting is quite unique and relevant today. I think a lot of young viewers will be able to relate to the struggle of making it big. Another thing to look forward to on “Start-Up” is the chemistry between Bae Suzy and Nam Joo-hyuk. Their casting alone makes this drama a visual feast.
“Start-Up” starring Bae Suzy and Nam Joo-hyuk will premiere this October on Netflix.
