Shinee’s Onew up to romance Han Seung-yeon in Age of Youth 2
Shinee’s Onew (Descended From the Sun) has been offered a role opposite Han Seung-yeon (Secret Love) in the second season of JTBC’s Age of Youth. This cohabitation drama was all about the trials and tribulations faced by the five very different college-age women who lived together in the share house Belle Epoque.
Part of the beauty of the drama was the diversity of its characters in terms of temperament, background, and life goals. Han Ye-ri (The Worst Day) played a character who was fiercely independent but also burdened by financial woes; Park Eun-bin (Father I’ll Take Care of You) was a boy-crazy single girl with a compulsive lying tic; Ryu Hwa-young (Father is Strange) played a sexy young woman who used men for money; Park Hye-soo (Introverted Boss) was a shy freshman; and Han Seung-yeon played a love-fool, who fell for every trick in the book when it came to her man’s deceptions.
Hopefully, she’ll have better luck with Onew this time around—his character is reported to be an engineering student who falls in love with her. No further details have been released, but he played such a sweetie in Descended From the Sun that I’m looking forward to seeing more of his tender-hearted personality shine through in his next role too. All the original main cast members have agreed to reprise their roles except for Ryu Hwa-young, who will probably still be busy with her current weekend drama, Father Is Strange. A new character whose nickname is “The Tall One” will replace her in the share house.
Age of Youth Season 2 will air on JTBC starting August, after the end of Woman of Dignity, which follows currently airing Man to Man in the Friday-Saturday time slot.
