A CINE-RAMA is a new form of content where one work is produced in two versions — a movie version and a drama version. The movie version will be released first and screened at theaters before the drama version is released on OTT platforms. A Chilling Cohabitation is a horror and rom-com genre story about what happens when Jeong Se Ri, a girl who can see ghosts, meets a man who accidentally became a ghost, and the two start living together. Sowon will play the role of Jeong Se Ri, a part time cafe worker who gains the ability to see ghosts from a special event. She has a difficult life due to her ability, but is always trying to remain positive and bright.
As this is Sowon’s acting debut, she has been putting in extra effort to make sure she does well, working hard to prepare for her filming and character. Back in August, Sowon decided to join IOK Company and make the leap into an acting career.
A Chilling Cohabitation recently held a script reading session. The movie version is slated to be released in the first half of 2022, while the drama version will be released on YouTube and other online platforms afterwards.
