Standby stars Ryu Jin as an aspiring anchor in a news station who’s in the biz for so long but newcomers just pass him by. I am so excited for this because Ryu Jin has always been the serious guy in what I’ve seen him in so this is a refreshing change. Lee Ki Woo stars as his mischievous brother, who gets entangled with Jung So Min’s country bumpkin character, who gets entangled with high school boy, Im Si Wan. Ha Suk Jin also plays the star of the news station, which more or less aggravates Ryu Jin since he’s way younger than him and way green in the industry.
Standby premieres on April 9, with the premiere date moved a week later to give way to High Kick 3 specials this week.
