Jinyoung, Jang Dong-yoon, Chae Soo-bin star in KBS drama special If We Were a Season
Jang Dong-yoon, Chae Soo-bin, Jinyoung
Great, now I want a full-length drama with these three as leads. KBS is producing a drama special called If We Were a Season, and it’s been confirmed that Jinyoung (Moonlight Drawn By Clouds) and Jang Dong-yoon (Solomon’s Perjury) have signed on to star opposite Chae Soo-bin (Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People), who confirmed her role back in April.
This will be Jinyoung’s first acting role since his turn as Kim Yoon-sung in Moonlight last year, and I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry that his character in If We Were a Season is also one with a one-sided crush, this time on Chae Soo-bin’s character. The show is described as a youth melo, so I suspect that Jang Dong-yoon’s character, described as fresh and bright, will be the third leg in a love triangle among the three leads, which, if so, is guaranteed to break my heart. Maybe it’s a good thing this isn’t a full-length drama, ‘cause fewer episodes mean less pain, right?
I don’t usually tune into drama specials but I’m looking forward to this one because it’s one big Moonlight reunion: If We Were a Season will be helmed by PD Kang Soo-yeon and written by Im Ye-jin, who were both junior members of the PD and writing teams in Moonlight Drawn By Clouds. I’m also looking forward to seeing Jang Dong-yoon, though I was a bit surprised to hear of his participation since his next project School 2017 is due to start airing in July. This might mean he’ll be double booked for a short while, since script reads for If We Were a Season have already been held and they’re supposed to start shoots very soon.
There’s no word on when If We Were a Season will air, but it looks like KBS aired their 2016 drama specials between September and November of last year, so we can probably expect it to release sometime this fall or early winter.
