Actors Im Si-wan, Go Ah-seong and Park Yong-woo from the original Wave series
Im Si-wan plays Hwang Dong-joo, a unique character who became a National Tax Service investigator from an accountant who managed money for a large corporation. Dong-Joo Hwang is appointed team leader of the 5 tax offices, the so-called “dump”, and brings the team to life. Hwang Dong-ju, seen by Im Si-wan, is a person who gives “the joy of life that comes from an extraordinary figure who can say what he wants to say directly within the framework of how to act”. In order to create a vivid character, actor Im Si-wan said, “I visited the National Tax Service, interviewed former employees, and asked about the way I spoke and questions about the work of office,” Im Si-wan said.
Go Ah-seong takes on the role of Seo Hye-yeong, who feels the gap between reality and ideals in the 5 Taxation Countries, but changes after meeting Hwang Dong-joo. Actress Go Ah-seong, who continues to “worry about how to express a working woman,” focuses on the character of a character who slowly regains her passion, “Dong-ju and Hye-young have different genders and personalities, but in this way, Hye-young equates with Dong-ju. In addition, he explained the office look with plaid pattern and tweed material following a reflection on National Tax Service official Hye-young’s style, saying, “I decided to make the best use of not being hip.”
Park Yong-woo took on the role of Oh Young, a character who once played an active role as Jo Se-guk’s ace, but now believes he doesn’t work. Actor Park Yong-woo, who discovered “cynicism” and “wit and comedy to hide cynicism” in Oh Young, reportedly honed “a character worthy of an adult drama” with acting that combined both correctly. “Oh Young is a character that people who live a social life can realistically empathize with. I want audiences to see
