Time-slip drama special Splish Splash Love sets airdate

The stills for this drama crack me up. MBC’s 2-episode time-slip fantasy romance drama Splish Splash Love (Pongdang Pongdang Love) has secured a December broadcast date, with plans to release the episodes simultaneously online. Kim Seul-gi (Oh My Ghostess) stars as a high school student with space-time-bending superpowers who accidentally travels back in time to Joseon, where she meets a young king played by Yoon Doo-joon (Let’s Eat 2). I love that there’s an actual plot explanation for why she’d be taking a selfie with a king.

Kim Seul-gi plays a high school senior with the ability to teleport whenever it rains. The bane of her existence is math (which has caused her to give up her dreams), and on the day of her college entrance exam, she accidentally teleports herself all the way back to early Joseon, during the reign of King Lee Do (Sejong the Great). She’s immediately accosted by palace guards for trespassing, and brought before the king for questioning.

Yoon Doo-joon’s King Lee Do is a workaholic who loves math, and is struggling to bolster his influence as a young king because he’s still politically weak and his citizens are suffering from drought and disease. The unexpected encounter with a girl from the future will teach him to open his heart. It’s a quirky romance between two young people who don’t know what they want for their futures, growing up and helping each other discover their dreams.

Part of me is disappointed that it’s only two episodes, but I like that we get all of the time-travel hijinks of a full-length drama with none of the angst. It certainly looks adorable, and I’m glad we’ll be seeing it soon.

Splish Splash Love will air on two consecutive Sundays, December 6 and December 13, on MBC.

Kim Seul-gi you are growing on me! This is even better with a Joseon touch.

I really hope this is good and leads to bigger things for both of them. I wonder if MBC's treating the two-episode length like a test run to see how people react to the leads, they're both relatively new actors after all.

I don't know the lead guy at all to be honest so I don't know what to expect from him.
My first 2 eps drama was "The Story of Hyang Dan" and I loved it to pieces. I had no idea Si-won would be so darn charming.

This actually sounds like another heartwarming 2eps drama especially when they throw the genius and beloved Lee Do (King Sejong) in it.

He absolutely killed it in Let's Eat 1 and 2, to the point where I didn't realise he was an idol at first. He's another one who isn't letting his good looks do all the work for him, and that's encouraging.

I think as long as he can manage the sageuk speech (which is probably one of the reasons why he's going for a 2-episoder), he'll do well here too.

I first saw him in MORE CHARMING BY THE DAY and immediately fell in love despite his role being a minor one. He was so adorable in that sitcom! That said, I trust both of them will do perfectly well in this drama special.

This is accurate. I actually watched Let's Eat 2 first, and then found out he was an idol and went back and watched season 1. I was disappointed he was not the focus in the first series I actually thought the second season was better!

YESSSSS COME FAST DECEMBER!!!

I've been waiting for this one ever since it was first announced because I adore both actors and they really earned their way to playing leads on the Big 3. And that first still cracks me up - I've always loved the bts pics from sageuk dramas where the actors are in full hanbok but chilling with their phones or have puffa jackets over their historical duds. And now we get that in the actual drama!

(now I hope to god this gets subbed)

KSG is such a great comedic actress. It would be good seeing her challenged as a serious actress in a melo. But she's so charming!

i wish its a prequel for their full length drama :D
tough i never like the idea of korean kings romance story (because they have more than 5 wives which is not so romantic to me), so maybe in the future, kim seul gi meet the king again. maybe with a new title. maybe a young math profesor. that would be cute ^^

Huft, okay i get that let out.
On the serious note, it feels soo good to see Kim Seulgi again onscreen. Already miss her since Ghostess.

Idk how good Doojoon is in acting department. But after watching him in the latest Law of the Jungle ep he is seriously growing on me. His airtime with 89line maknae on that show is cute :3

Cant wait can waitttttttt. Hope it gets subbed *crossing fingers*

Give his dramas a try. He has Let's Eat and Let's Eat 2 which I really love. Aaand prepare to be really hungry if you're watching these two without something to eat. Ha.
