Kim So-hyun joins Yoochun (yet again) for Sensory Couple
Kim So-hyun (Reset, Suspicious Housekeeper) is joining SBS’s Sensory Couple, and she’ll be playing the little sister to the drama’s hero, played by Yoochun (Three Days). Aw, how cute. She’s a talented budding actor and good enough to handle leading roles herself (though there just aren’t that many available for precocious 15-year-olds), though for now she’s mostly building up experience in supporting roles.
In Sensory Couple, Kim So-hyun’s character figures centrally in the “Barcode Murder Case” that drives the story. After the hero loses his sister, he suffers an accident and loses his ability to sense anything, and in the same accident our heroine (Shin Se-kyung), who possesses the extrasensory ability to see smells, loses her memory.
This’ll be the third drama together for Yoochun and Kim So-hyun, having previously worked together on Rooftop Prince and I Miss You, although their parts belonged to different generations (in Rooftop she was the child version of his wife, and in I Miss You she was his childhood sweetheart). I just find it adorable that Kim So-hyun gets to nurse her crush on Yoochun oppa repeatedly by working with him over and over. And every time, he’s devastated to be without her and spends his entire youth damaged over the loss. Oppa just loves you too much!
This’ll also reunite the two with Rooftop Prince‘s writer, who kind of seems like an odd choice for a mystery-thriller like this, given how wacky and comedic that show was. But perhaps the writer just likes expanding range, since credits also include the melodrama Yawang.
Sensory Couple will follow Hyde, Jekyll, Me on Wednesdays and Thursdays and premieres in April.
