“Let Me Be Your Knight,” an iQiyi K-series, unveils behind-the-scenes stories of boy bands.
The series follows an A-list idol who suffers from dreamwalking. He asks a doctor to live at his dorm during his therapy. In the process, the doctor and the band members create a series of lovely but intense experiences.
Jung In-sun and Lee Jun-young Are Lead Stars of iQiyi Series ‘Let Me Be Your Knight’
Director Ahn Ji-sook attended the recently held press conference with main cast members, including lead actress Jung In-sun, lead actor Lee Jun-young, former Wanna One member Yoon Ji-sung, NU’EST member Kim Jong-hyun (JR), AB6IX member Kim Dong-hyun, and Jang Dong-joo.
In “Let Me Be Your Knight,” Jung In-sun plays In Yoon-joo, a tour guide who pretends to be a physician. By accident, she starts to live in the dorm of A-list boy band Luna.
Lee Jun-young is Yoon Tae-in, the leader and main vocalist of Luna. Playing his bandmates in the series are Kim Jong-hyun as bassist Lee Shin, Yoon Ji-sung as drummer Kim Yoo-chan, Kim Dong-hyun as keyboardist Woo Ga-on, and Jang Dong-joo as guitarist and sub vocalist Seo Woo-yeon.
Jung In-sun said she was delighted to work with five good-looking colleagues, and added: “I probably feel more chemistry with Lee, as we have more scenes together.” Lee also believed they formed a perfect pair, because “she is like a gift package that keeps on giving so many unanticipated surprises.”
From Real-Life Boy Band Wanna One to Fictional Group LunaÂ
Yoon Ji-sung, Kim Jong-hyun, and Kim Dong-hyun all participated in a reality competition show “Produce 101” Season 2 in 2017. The new series extends their past connections as members of the Wanna One boy band formed during the competition.
Dorm life in the story reminded Yoon Ji-sung of his experiences in Wanna One. “I haven’t lived in a dorm for a long time,” said Yoon, “and I recall a valuable time of my life during the filming process.” In his debut performance, he would need to practice and play a drummer. Yoon also said the role was 80% similar to himself. “I laugh as much as he does, but don’t always think out loud like him.”
While he has been in showbiz for nine years already, this is also a TV series debut for Kim Jong-hyun. “It’s starting from scratch for me on set,” he said, adding that he is grateful for the support from NU’EST members. “They all have prior experiences in dramas or musicals, and I’ve received some great advice from them. We always cheer for others on their achievements, and encourage each other to recognize their efforts or performances.”
Kim Dong-hyun often took care of others in AB6IX, but he became the youngest one in the series. While he wasn’t used to acting like a spoiled kid at the beginning, he later enjoyed all the attention from the crew. He was also elected as “the most adorable one” by cast members.
Jang Dong-joo, for his part, played a high school judo team member in “Loss Time Life,” a Korean remake of the Japanese drama of the same name.
