Bubblegum’s childhood friends become a couple
I know, we’re all probably a little shellshocked from the last pair of best friends who took their sweet-ass time (7000 days, to be exact) to become lovers, but maybe this couple will have better luck igniting the spark at the right time? Posters are out for tvN’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Bubblegum, starring Jung Ryeo-won and Lee Dong-wook as longtime friends who become something more.
The romantic comedy is about adults lacking affection in their lives and healing each other by being together, and stars Lee Dong-wook as a doctor of Eastern medicine and Jung Ryeo-won as a radio PD. They’ve been the best of friends since childhood, and the first set of teasers were all about how things would be different if they tried dating each other. Awkwardness ensued, which was promising for the comedy factor.
The posters are less sarcastic, and instead feature the leads as playground pals even as adults. They look pretty adorable just playing together in the park, and the copy reads: “Love’s beginning. Since when did we become a ‘We’?”
The leading foursome is just as cute in the group shots: Lee Jong-hyuk plays Jung Ryeo-won’s chief at the broadcast station, and Park Hee-bon plays a chaebol heiress who’s also a dentist, who gets set up on a blind date with Lee Dong-wook. I’m sure there will be lots of jealousy fueling the just-friends-not-really relationship at the center of the story, but they all look so cozy and happy together… for now.
Bubblegum follows Rude Miss Young-ae and premieres October 26.
