It looks like Yoon Sang-hyun (Can’t Lose) is making his drama comeback with the new show starring Yeo Jin-gu as a high school delinquent, called Could We Love, due out this summer on SBS. Aw, I guess this means his ajusshi idol drama isn’t happening anymore. Sadface. I’m still trying to figure out what the relationship will be between the two boys, because apparently Yeo Jin-gu’s going to be a noona-killer in this drama (which means the title might lean closer to asking permission, like Can I Love You?)… and it also leaves the possibility that Yoon Sang-hyun and Yeo Jin-gu will be rivals for the same leading lady. No, right? That… can’t be. Say it ain’t so, Show.
Yeo Jin-gu stars as a high school troublemaker who lives on his own, in the restaurant that his parents left him. He purposely cuts off all ties to his half brother, and takes care of himself. The story will be about him falling for an older woman, the heroine, who has yet to be cast. Yoon Sang-hyun will be in both their lives and cause some kind of upheaval… I just really hope it’s not the romantic kind. He could be the half-brother or father figure, right? Teacher? Neighborhood ajusshi with overly primped hair?
And Kim So-hyun (I Miss You) will play a high school student with a one-sided love for the hero. Aw, it sounds like it could be a cute coming-of-age story. I just worry about the whole noona romance working, only because Yeo Jin-gu is fifteen in real life, so it’s not like watching Biscuit Teacher Star Candy and just pretending that Gong Yoo is in high school. For now I’ll have to trust that they know what they’re doing in casting so young. I’d love it if they did something unconventional and bittersweet too.
The show will be helmed by the writer-director team behind Scent of a Woman and Dr. Champ, and follows All About My Romance in June.
