Yoo In-young, Jung Kyeo-woon join Oh My Venus
We’ve got our second leads for KBS’s new “health healing rom-com” Oh My Venus, otherwise known as the So Ji-sub & Shin Mina Show. Because yunno, we’re mostly in it for those two and their adorable chemistry. They’ll be joined by Yoo In-young (Mask) and Jung Kyeo-woon (Birth of a Beauty), who have signed on to play their rivals. Well if you have to have romantic rivals, Yoo In-young is tough to beat in the sassy, love-to-hate-so-much-you-love-her category. She’s awesome.
The new romantic comedy is about dieting, strangely enough, and features a heroine who loses her perfect figure and undergoes a diet challenge, falling in love with her trainer in the process. Shin Mina stars as a lawyer who was enviably beautiful in her youth, and has gained weight as an adult. So Ji-sub is a world-famous trainer to the stars who’s veiled in mystery (I don’t know why anyone would care enough about a trainer to think he’s mysterious, but let’s just go with it). As they work on the heroine’s physical transformation, they’ll heal each other’s internal wounds and fall in love.
Yoo In-young plays a lawyer who’s Shin Mina’s friend from school, and now her boss at their law firm. In their youth, Shin Mina had all the looks and Yoo In-young was overweight with zero self-confidence. Of course as adults they’ve swapped places and Yoo In-young is gorgeous and successful, and she’ll even steal Shin Mina’s boyfriend.
Jung Kyeo-woon costars as Shin Mina’s boyfriend of fifteen years. He’s a former national swimmer and now a public relations manager for a medical corporation, who also happens to be So Ji-sub’s childhood rival. Just coincidentally. He’s with the heroine mostly out of obligation after fifteen years together, so when he meets Yoo In-young, he leaves Shin Mina for her. Your loss, man. Maybe they figured there was no need for second lead syndrome when you have So Ji-sub and Shin Mina?
Oh My Venus follows Sassy Go Go and premieres November 16.
