So Ji Sub makes his acting comeback in writer-director Jang Jin‘s (Welcome to Dongmakgol, My Son) television debut project, U-Turn.
The four-part “special movie” aired its first episode on the 1st on cable channel OCN to favorable viewer response, and before the third episode aired on the 15th it enjoyed a sharp jump in repeat viewings. Although the Jang Jin and So Ji Sub combination could be expected to draw some amount of attention, the response has surprised even the broadcasters: “We didn’t expect the interest to be this high.”
As a result, songs from the movie are also enjoying rising popularity, such as a new track “Only You” from Go Yu Jin (of rock band Flower) and Wheesung’s “Love Seat” (posted below). The movie also integrates product-placement advertising, thus inciting further interest in commercial circles.
The plot is described as revolving around a “fateful” couple and their unfolding love story; So Ji Sub’s love interest is played by Lee Yeon Hee.
