The cast of “The Golden Spoon” shared an interesting insight of the drama!
Based on the webtoon of the same name, “The Golden Spoon” is about a student born into a poor family who uses a magical golden spoon to swap fates with a friend born into a wealthy family. BTOB’s Yook Sungjae will be starring as Lee Seung Chun, the student who hopes to turn his life around with the titular golden spoon.
Jung Chaeyeon will be starring in the drama as Na Joo Hee, a chaebol heiress with a heart of gold who dreams of an ordinary life. Against her own wishes, her family has forced her into a loveless engagement with Hwang Tae Yong (played by Lee Jong Won)—the privileged friend whose life Lee Seung Chun covets. Yeonwoo takes on the role of Oh Yeo Jin, who is also from a rich family but has never-ending greed to climb high in life.
With the premiere approaching, the actors shared fun key points to look out for.
First off, Yook Sungjae shared, “If you focus on the moments when Lee Seung Chun appears as a wealthy person in front of those who hurt him and disrespected him when he was poor and takes revenge against them, you will be able to enjoy the drama more. In order to understand his scars and pain, I focused a lot on how the emotions he felt.”
Lee Jong Won commented, “I think the biggest charm of ‘The Golden Spoon’ is the story that crosses between those who were born with a ‘golden spoon’ and those who were born with a ‘dirt spoon.’ If you keep in mind how different actors express the same characters, you will be able to watch it more enjoyably.”
Jung Chaeyeon mentioned “secrets of secrets,” saying, “Please keep an eye on the drama until everything is revealed about those who hide their secrets and only reveal their desires.”
Yeonwoo explained, “I think it’ll be a chance you can think about yourself. You don’t just watch the choices and actions of the drama characters, but there is a part that extends to you. You’ll imagine things like what would happen if you go back to the past, go to the future, or win the lottery, but if you follow the story, you will find out what you value the most and what kind of person you are.”
“The Golden Spoon” will premiere on September 23 at 9:50 p.m. KST.
