Lee Je-hoon offered time-travel romance Tomorrow With You
OH. This is so much better! Lee Je-hoon (Signal) and Shin Mina (Oh My Venus) together in a time-travel romance? Be still my heart. Upcoming tvN fantasy drama Tomorrow With You has encountered its share of casting drama and production setbacks, from an early rejection by Han Ji-min, to a scandal that took Lee Min-ki out of the running, which ended up delaying the premiere a few months. But after confirming an early 2017 broadcast and beginning a new search for a leading man, things are looking way, way up.
The upbeat fantasy romance comes from the PD of hilarious tvN comedies Oh My Ghostess and High School King of Savvy, and the writer of Full Sun and the movie All About My Wife. It’s described as “sweet and savage,” and tells the story of a time-traveling husband and his cheerful wife… whom he married in a calculated move, to prevent the unhappy future that he witnessed on one of his trips to his own future.
Lee Je-hoon has been offered the role of the husband, a time-traveler who owns a real estate company worth 200 billion won. Well if I could go to the future, I’d be a billionaire too. But when he sees his future self living unhappily, he decides to avoid that fate by marrying Shin Mina without love. While their start is a fake marriage, he sees that his wife gets hurt because of him, and it starts to distress him. The story is about him slowly falling in love with her, despite marrying her for selfish and loveless reasons.
That sounds adorable, and I’m beyond excited at the idea of Lee Je-hoon letting loose in a bright and cheery drama. We all know he’s amazing at intense thrillers, but there’s a whole wide world of rom-coms out there, and the perfect bubbly co-star in Shin Mina. Hell, he’s already an expert in messing with time after Signal. Argh, now I want this to happen so badly that I’ll be crushed if the two of them don’t sign on. Don’t break my heart, Lee Je-hoon! Future me will never forgive you!
Tomorrow With You is slated to be a Friday-Saturday drama premiering in late December or early January. Why does that seem so far away now?
