Im Ji-yeon considers drama reunion with Sung Joon in rom-com Mojito
There’s a potential new drama reunion in the works for High Society co-stars Sung Joon (Perfect Wife) and Im Ji-yeon (Blow Breeze), who are both considering offers to star as love interests in a new romantic comedy drama called Mojito.
It’s weird to think of them as a couple because I’ve seen High Society, where Im Ji-yeon had a super cute loveline with Park Hyung-shik, and Sung Joon had a super broody one with UEE, and they were all friends. It was one of those dramas where I really liked the secondary couple and nothing else, but because Im Ji-yeon was winsome and charming in it, I can see her being a good rom-com heroine.
Mojito is described as an upbeat romantic comedy about an heir with a negative bank balance who becomes anxious at night, and so he decides to open up a bar that only operates in the daytime. Sung Joon is up for the lead role, and Im Ji-yeon has received the offer to play the heroine, who has lived with insufficient funds her entire life. So, exactly like her High Society character then. They’ll meet at the bar and help each other overcome past wounds, and fall in love.
The 16-episode series is reportedly being considered at KBS for its new Friday-Saturday timeslot, but KBS says that no decision has been made. It was originally announced as a pre-produced series, but that may change depending on which broadcaster ends up picking it up.
