In the K-drama “Start-Up” premiering on Netflix in October, Bae Suzy plays Seo Dalmi, who dreams of becoming Korea’s Steve Jobs.

Produced by Studio Dragon, “Start-Up” is the story of young people passionately pursuing their dreams in the world of startup companies.

The world of ‘Start-Up’

Joining Suzy are Nam Joohyuk, Kim Seonho, and Kang Hanna. Oh Choonghwan (“Hotel del Luna”, “While You Were Sleeping”, “Doctors”) is directing “Start-Ups”. Park Hyeryun (“Dream High”, “I Can Hear Your Voice”, “Pinocchio”, and “While You Were Sleeping”) is the writer.

While Dalmi doesn’t have a fancy background, she’s full of energy and is passionate about her work. She also has experience in a wide range of part-time jobs.

Meanwhile, Joohyuk’s character Nam Dosan is the founder of Samsan Tech. A “math genius” as a young boy, Dosan was once the pride of his family. They are ashamed of him now, however, as his business has been going down for the past two years.

He finds out that Dalmi mistakenly remembers him as her first love. So he decides to work his way up in hopes of turning that misunderstanding into reality.

Seonho plays Han Jipyeong, senior investment manager at a venture capital company. His astonishing investment skills and sharp tongue earn him the nickname “the Gordon Ramsay of investments.”

Won Injae, played by Hanna, is a second-generation chaebol CEO who has everything people desire — good education, beauty, and money. But her background seems to be working against her in the startup world, as she struggles to create success on her own and be acknowledged for her skills.

So what happens when these four very different individuals all begin their journeys at the same place called Sand Box? How will they strive to fulfill their dreams and goals? And will Suzy succeed in becoming Korea’s Steve Jobs?

Find out in October!
