Hello everyone! I've recently discovered a web comic on the Line Webtoon App, and I have been OBSESSED. The webtoon is called "unTouchable" by an artist that goes by the name of "massstar" (here are the links to their Facebook and Twitter!)
Seriously guys, this comic has me hooked. I 110% recommend it!
The description of the webtoon reads:
"Sia Lee is a modern-day vampire who absorbs energy from humans by touching them instead of drinking their blood. She has been desperate to touch Jiho since the day he moved in next door—but he's a germaphobe. Will Sia best his mysophobia and touch Jiho?"
Anywho, I started thinking about how fitting the series would be if turned into a K-Drama, so here is my interpretation of who could fill in the characters' roles!
Kim Yongsun (Mamamoo's Solar) as Sia Lee
Sia Lee is the female lead, and the story mainly revolves around her. As stated in the description, she is a modern-day vampire, who feeds off humans' energy through physical contact (even something as simple as a handshake works!). She's supposedly in her early to mid-twenties, and the beginning of the story is set to when she is first moving out on her own. I think Solar would be a perfect fit. Not only can she pull off the visuals, but she can also portray the persistent, yet comically cute personality of Sia Lee. The female lead is also a model, which is another attribute I believe Yongsun has mastered!
Lee Taemin (SHINee) as Baryu
Baryu is an important character to the plot, coming in as Sia's childhood best friend. Just like her, he is also a modern-day vampire. What I actually found quite interesting was that Baryu is the lead singer of a popular boy group called "O'RNIJ". Even through the news, fans know of him and Sia's close bond. I thought Taemin would fit this role very well, since he could mimic Baryu's playful, yet chic personality. Even the visuals work perfectly!
