Beautiful Gong Shim team returns with fantasy-romance Reunited Worlds
Hmm, this new drama seems interesting. The PD-writer team behind SBS’s romantic comedy Beautiful Gong Shim and action-comedy-thriller Girl Who Sees Smells, Baek Su-chan and Lee Hee-myung, are joining forces once again to make a drama called Reunited Worlds. Reports are saying that the upcoming supernatural fantasy-romance is set to air in July.
Not much has been revealed on the plot, but what is available has me raising eyebrows. Reunited Worlds will center around a romance between a 18-year-old young man and a 31-year-old woman. Before you run for the hills screaming, they’re supposed to also be born in the same year. So I guess the supernatural part has to do with how these two people who are the same age technically ended up 13 years apart.
Writer Lee Hee-myung and PD Baek Su-chan have a pretty good track record together: Girl Who Sees Smells was a modest success, and Beautiful Gong Shim was a light weekend hit that made Namgoong Min (Chief Kim) a leading man. They’ve proven to successfully mix romance with the supernatural in Smells, and on top of that, writer Lee Hee-myung was behind one of my sentimental favorites, Success Story of a Bright Girl, so I’m cautiously optimistic this will work, in spite of my reservations about the premise.
Reunited Worlds hasn’t made any casting announcements as of yet, but I’m sure we’ll be hearing reports of offers soon. This drama will follow upcoming drama Suspicious Partner in the Wednesday-Thursday slot in July.
