Jung In-sun (Welcome to Waikiki, My Secret Terrius) and Lee Jun-young (Imitation) headline the new iQiyi series Let Me Be Your Knight. The Korean series takes the audience behind the scenes of the boy band industry.
Lee Jun-young plays Yoon Tae-In, the leader and main vocalist of the idol group Luna who suffers from unexplainable bouts of sleepwalking. To get rid of this peculiar problem, a doctor begins to live with the group in the dorm to observe and treat the restless Tae-In.
Unfortunately, the doctor is a fake. In Yoon-Joo (played by Jung In-Sun) is really just a tour guide. After getting involved in an accident, she ends up living with the group. Somehow, she has to keep her secret while living in the dorm.
The rest of Luna are played by NU’EST’s Kim Jong-hyun (aka JR) as bassist Lee Shin, Yoon Ji-sung (formerly of Wanna One) as drummer Kim Yoo-chan, AB6IX’s Kim Dong-hyun as keyboardist Woo Ga-on, and Jang Dong-joo as guitarist and sub vocalist Seo Woo-yeon.
During a recent press conference, lead actress Jung In-Sun said that while she was delighted to work with five good-looking colleagues, she confessed, “I probably feel more chemistry with Lee, as we have more scenes together.” Lee Jun-young was quick to return the compliment, saying, “She is like a gift package that keeps on giving so many unanticipated surprises.”
Meanwhile, Yoon Ji-sung, Kim Jong-hyun, and Kim Dong-hyun previously participated in the reality competition show Produce 101 Season 2 in 2017. The dorm scenes even reminded Ji-sung about his experiences as part of Wanna One. As for his debut role, he claimed he’s 80% similar to his character. “I laugh as much as he does, but don’t always think out loud like him.”
Also making his TV series debut, Kim Jong-hyun said he is grateful for the support of his fellow 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.”
As for Kim Dong-hyun, he was used to taking care of others in AB6IX. But since he was the youngest in the cast, the cast and crew took care of him as his seniors, with the cast even dubbing him “the most adorable one”.
Let Me Be Your Knight will update exclusively at 10:05 pm every Sunday on iQiyi.
