Unemployed Romance’s adorable poster shoot

They make a cute couple. Here’s a peek at Lee Young-ah (Vampire Prosecutor) and Namgoong Min (Gu Am Heo Jun) in their upcoming romantic comedy drama for cable network E Channel called Unemployed Romance. The poster was released along with a whole collection of B-side cutesy couple shots, which made me wonder why every drama doesn’t do this. More cute — how is this a bad thing?

The rom-com is a short 10-episode series that’ll air once a week on Saturday nights beginning in October. The show comes from a rookie PD-writer team, and is the bright upbeat story of an aspiring writer (Lee Young-ah) who lives off of unemployment checks while chasing her dream. It’s her low point after graduating college and thinking she’d be the next hit drama writer, and there at the unemployment benefits office she meets Namgoong Min, who was her college sweetheart. Gack.

He’s a civil servant working at the unemployment office, and is in no way happy to see her. He thinks she’s the reason everything went wrong in his life while they were dating, and basically goes running in the other direction the second they’re reunited. Fate has other plans of course, and the two will get sucked back into each other’s complicated love lives.

Seo Joon-young (Sirius, To the Beautiful You) and Bae Seul-gi (Nigh Hospital) play the second leads, who are all connected in the love square. Seo Joon-young plays a successful lawyer and friend to Namgoong Min, who falls for Lee Young-ah instantly. Bae Seul-gi plays Namgoong Min’s girlfriend and Lee Young-ah’s friend… so basically everyone took turns dating everybody? People, is this maybe when you decide to branch out and make new friends?

In the two clips below, there’s more adorableness in the script read, when Lee Young-ah surprises Namgoong Min with a real kiss during the rehearsal, making him all flustered. And in the second, Namgoong Min gets all swoony with his lines and Seo Joon-young gets jealous and pouty, until the two boys argue off-script: “She’s mine!” “She’s mine!” Lol. This should be fun.

Unemployed Romance premieres October 5 on E Channel.

Ok this looks so adorable! Thank you so much for posting this (kind of helps get over Master's Sun ep 12 ending^^) =)

I really like Nam Goong Min but I love Seo Joon-young! He was hilarious in TTBY and amazing in Sirius!

I just hope that there will be subs (I kind of doubt that viki'll get the licence) because it looks like it's going to be a hoot :)

I'm not trying to be mean here, but does she photograph differently than she films? Or has she altered her face since VP2? She just looks like a completely different person. I am not being negative or critical, just saying I would have never realized it was the same woman.

I am not all that familiar with the cast, but I hope this comes off well as we could use a good frothy rom com.

I don't think your the only one but personally I think the bangs make a huge different. Or Lee Young-ah got her face back to normal.

She doesn't look any different from her older pics, where she has bangs.

I think its all acting. She has different expressions playing a prosecutor and her hair, make-up, and posture are quite different.

She is Wow also aired once a week. I enjoyed it; Problem is I don't remember what the previous week's single ep was about by the time the following week's ep airs! 1 ep per week does work too well that way.

Just kill us with cute, Show!

Finally, promo pics that are flat-out adorable, and how unbelievable to see she's actually sitting on his lap! for several of those stills!

That planned ten ep schedule makes me think of the recently finished Mischievous Kiss, Tokyo - that one was also abbreviated.

Charming cast. They all look like they're having such a good time for rehearsals, it's sure to translate to the screen, **fingers crossed**

Haha, the lap sitting surprised me too! And they look so calm and casual about it. Shocking.

Itazura na kiss ~LIT wasn't actually abbreviated. It's actually more than the typical dorama episode count. Although I was hoping it's one of those 20-episode one since it got popular.

I am not familiar with any of the actors, but the posters look adorable. Maybe with only 10 episodes they won't put in too much angst, since that usually takes up 6 or so episodes anyways.

Sounds cute. Plus I like Lee Young-ah. I loved Namgoong Min's expression after she kissed him. I would've kissed him too. I can tell these two will have a lot of chemistry together. Which will make this extra fun.

Does anyone know if there will be a third season of Vampire Prosecutor?

Yes, they delayed the third season till next year, because they are searching for a new writer. I guess they are trying to make season 3 epic, so it takes more time.

Honestly the plot didn't really interest me but they look adorable together and the video of the kiss was really cute. If this gets subbed, I might check it out. It's shorter than your average drama too so there's less commitment involved.

You had me at "a short 10-episode series" - I just watched the 4-episode "Running" with Park Min Young last night and it left me wondering why more K Dramas don't embrace the less is more philosophy. This series sounds like being a fun watch in its own right, and I hope it's successful enough to encourage more departures from the 16/20/24 episode prison that fills so many series with, well, filler.
