“I heard crews saying that Lee Soo-hyuk was like an Evangelion,” she added, looking at Lee blushing.
Evangelion is a Japanese animated series featuring muscular robots.
The cable-TV drama comically portrays the life of a high school student who leads a double life as a student and office worker. The immature and simple-minded teenager goes to work and pretends to be his older brother, a young executive, at his brother’s sudden request and faces numerous challenges along the way.
The drama airs at 11 p.m. every Monday and Tuesday on tvN.
