Well, if Han Chae-ah gains a high-profile rom-com in place of losing Heo Jun, then that’s fine by me. Now that political rom-com All About My Romance fiiiiiinally has a heroine in Lee Min-jung (that is, if they can get her to stay), they’ve cast Han Chae-ah (Oohlala Spouses, Gaksital) as the second lead. Hm, is it wrong that I like the second lead more?
Han Chae-ah will be playing a reporter and a law school hoobae to both Shin Ha-kyun and Park Hee-soon‘s characters, and get this: they’re both in love with her. BOTH of them? What country did she save in a past life? Not that I don’t get why she’d get all the love, because she’s awesome. But it’s less common to have a second lead who’s got her pick between all the guys. Eeny, meeny, hot-ajusshi-mo.
The 16-episode drama from the team behind Protect the Boss is about two politicians from opposing parties who battle it out on the assembly floor and then carry on a secret romance behind closed doors. Shin Ha-kyun stars as a member of the conservative New Korea Party, while Lee Min-jung plays a representative of the Green Progressive Party. They’re as opposite as two people can be, in ideology, personality, and political agenda… but sparks are sparks, whether fueled by regular rom-com hate or political rom-com hate.
Park Hee-soon plays a prosecutor who becomes Lee Min-jung’s aide when she’s newly elected to her parliamentary post. It looks like the four leads will have a pretty complicated love square, on equal, mutually destructive turf. Nothing like the fate of your political party and the entire law-making branch of government to add pressure to your romance. As if dating wasn’t hard enough.
All About My Romance follows That Winter, The Wind Blows and premieres in April on SBS.
