‘The Equator Man’ shares still cut of ZE:A’s Siwan and Park Se Young

On March 8th, a romantic still cut of ZE:A‘s Siwan and actress Park Se Young from their upcoming drama, ‘The Equator Man‘, was revealed!

Taken in Busan back in February, the still cut features the scene in which Siwan meets Park Se Young for the first time as she runs under his umbrella to avoid the sudden downpour of rain.

Park Se Young plays the role of ‘Sumi’, who goes through a rough childhood as the daughter of an exorcist. She obsessively falls in love with Siwan, who plays the role of ‘Jang Il’, and stops at no limits to make sure that he returns the same feelings, even by going as far as to manipulate a painful past in order to cure her own loneliness and pain.

‘Jang Il’ is a cold young man who has a sad story behind his negative outlook on life, so curiosity is beginning to brew on how the two lost souls will be able to find love in each other.

Other stars in the line-up include Um Tae Woong, Lee Bo Young, Lee Hyun Woo and more. The drama begins airing on March 21st.
