"Gorae Byul - The Gyeongseong Mermaid" is set in the independent movements during the Japanese colonial era. The lead character SuA is a servant in a pro-Japanese household. At the beach, she met EuiHyeon who had jumped into the sea after being shot by the Japanese police. For those of you who would like to read the webtoon, you can find it here in Korean. There is no official English translation.

TAKEONE Studio (game "BTS World", drama "L.U.C.A: The Beginning", other webtoon adaptation for "CELL", etc) is in charge of the adaptation (as announced on July 9). But no more information was released yet, and there is no actor cast for now. 

Fans of the webtoon are waiting for the announcement of the cast. We can already think of actors and actresses who would be perfect for the role!

SuA (17 years old) is a servant of the Yeo family, a pro-Japanese household. She was born in a poor family and was sold to them at 5 years old. She is illiterate but clever and strong-minded.

One day at the beach, she saved Kang EuiHyeon an independence activist shot by the Japanese. After he regained consciousness, he told her the story of "The Little Mermaid", the princess who saved the prince, without mentioning the end. SuA fell in love with Kang EuiHyeon and wanted to meet him again. Due to various events, she ended up going to Gyeongseong (now Seoul).

Kim SoHyun, Kim HyangGi, Kim TaeRi, and Chae SooBin could be a good match.

If indeed this webtoon will be made and Lee Jong Suk excels, I doubt that he will accept the offer, because according to him he is not good at drama with a background of saeguk

Na In Woo with a longhair character again? Dude, He will nail that Haesoo char, after all he was the Ondal, Byeong-In and 2015 Shine or Go crazy historical drama. Na In-Woo is one of the promising and versatile actors now.
