Could We Love serves up thoughtful romance for JTBC

With just over a week until the drama premieres, here are more stills and a teaser from JTBC’s upcoming drama Could We Love, the “rom-com for thirty- and fortysomethings” series from the producers of the well-received Could We Get Married.

The producers are enough to make this one worth keeping an eye out for, as Could We Get Married was something of a sleeper hit for JTBC, though the cast ain’t too shabby either. Heading the pack are Eugene and her trio of thirtysomething friends, while Uhm Tae-woong plays romantic lead with Kim Sung-soo in the mix as well. Eugene’s the divorced woman while one of her best friends is the housewife (Choi Jung-yoon) and the other a happily single “gold miss” (Kim Yumi), and each woman will have her own set of romantic and professional triumphs and foibles.

I know, I know, that sounds terribly generic for a logline, but the director did a wonderful job capturing the 30-ish woman’s heart in My Name Is Kim Sam-soon, so I’m not worried.

In the preview, divorced Eugene starts out by freaking out at her mother for embarrassing her, wailing, “That jerk’s getting remarried!” Then entertainment prez Kim Sung-soo asks if she knows a certain director and she calls herself a fan. Except when she actually comes face to face with said director (Uhmforce), she snaps at him to teach at school instead of making movies if what he wants to do is lecture her.

Then, a man (ex-boyfriend?) of Kim Yumi’s asks incredulously, “What kind of man are you dating that you’re acting like this?” She tells someone sternly that one ought to date a man who’s husband material… but we see her in heavy makeout sessions with young hottie Park Min-woo (Flower Boy Ramyun Shop). He’s one of her company’s employees, and cares for her with complete devotion. Aww.

Then there’s the well-groomed housewife (Choi Jung-yoon), who tells her teenage daughter (Jin Ji-hee) that they’d better keep this a secret from Dad, who knows nothing. Though she puts out a refined image as the perfect wife and mother, but she’s keeping a big secret from everyone (including her family). Sounds mysterious.

Could We Love will be a Monday-Tuesday series and will premiere on January 6.

awww yay Kim Yumi! I loved her so much as Jin-sook, it's great to see her in something new even if Jin-sook is a tough act to follow.

(also, she's dating Jung Woo aka AM1994's Trash Oppa. Which is kind of awesome)

It looks cute, but the lead poster is totally a rip-off of the concept for The Best Man Holiday, with the oh-so-sexy Taye Diggs. http://goo.gl/M34CKn

I couldn't get into Can We Get Married but hopefully this will go over better for me. A drama about the lives, loves and friendships of a group of thirty-something women is right up my alley as far as shows go so I will definitely check it out. The trailer didn't do much to excite me though.

Please be good drama. This is the only way, we will get more rom-com for older people and not just high school/college stories. 30 and 40 somethings need romance, too not just makjang dramas.

It looks like there's going to be a lot of rom-coms for 2014! Yay!! There was a scarcity of this in 2013. I love my light, fluffy romcoms! I think I'll be watching this and INR3.
