Jo Seung-woo up to play Lee Bo-young’s leading man
There’s a good chance that Jo Seung-woo might be coming back to dramaland for a second time. The film and musical actor only made his drama debut two years ago in the medical sageuk epic The Horse Healer, where he played the titular vet-turned-royal-physician. He’s currently being courted for SBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama God’s Gift–14 Days, which has secured Lee Bo-young (I Hear Your Voice) to headline. He’s just considering the role for now, but I think they’d make a great pair, and I also want him to take it because I couldn’t manage to care about horse doctoring but I do want to watch him in dramas.
God’s Gift is the time-slip drama that stars Lee Bo-young as a mother whose daughter gets kidnapped and killed, and she magically gets the chance to go back in time two weeks so she can try to prevent it from happening all over again. There isn’t much character information on the male lead, and the role is just described as a man who throws himself into helping the heroine as they race to save her daughter. I just wish we knew if he were playing a cop, a clown, or a really gung-ho boyfriend.
It won’t be a story that leaves a lot of time for anything other than the mission, but I loved the way Two Weeks hinted at larger story in small character moments, and would be happy if each new condensed-time drama this year (since there will be so many) could improve upon the last. I’ve almost given up on time travel being anything more than an initial gimmick, so all I’m looking for is some basic internal logic on that front. That’s not too much to ask for, right? Wait, don’t answer that.
God’s Gift–14 Days follows Warm Words and premieres in February.
