After leading the webtoon-adapted series Business Proposal, Kim Sejeong is now the main character in a new K-drama about webtoon editors!

Here's everything you need to know about Today's Webtoon:

The Plot

We have another Korean remake to look forward to! Based on the 2016 Japanese series Sleepeeer Hit!, Today's Webtoon revolves around an ex-judo athlete named Oh Ma Eum. She decided to change careers and applied to Neon Webtoon's editorial department. With South Korea's cutthroat digital comics industry, Ma Eum finds herself struggling as she adapts to a new field.

The Cast

The multi-hyphenate Kim Sejeong (she's a K-pop idol, too!) will portray Oh Ma Eum in the drama. After an injury, she had to quit as an aspiring Olympian but being the ball of sunshine that she is, Ma Eum focused on webtoons, which gave her joy back when she was in sports. In Today's Webtoon, we'll get to see Sejeong's infectious smile and bright personality again.

Starring opposite Sejeong is The King's Affection star Nam Yoon Su as the genius and happy-go-lucky Goo Joon Young. Like Ma Eum, he's also a rookie employee at Neon Webtoon. Joon Young used to work at a well-known IT company before he joined the webtoon editorial department, and it became difficult for him to adjust to his new company.
