Revolutionary Love secures leads, fall time slot on tvN
Yaasss, bring on the fall rom-coms! Kang So-ra (Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho) and Choi Siwon (She Was Pretty) have officially signed onto Revolutionary Love, the new drama directed by PD Song Hyun-wook of Oh Hae-young Again and written by Joo Hyun of Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki. And soon after, tvN announced that the series will premiere this fall.
Revolutionary Love has a pretty standard setup: A third-generation chaebol with no survival skills meets a hard-working Candy who doesn’t have the background to secure full-time employment. Of course there’s a love triangle, completed by another character who dreams of becoming a “gold spoon.” Siwon is set to play the carefree rich boy who pretends to be an unemployed bum for some reason. Having been pampered all his life, he’s naive and a little narcissistic, but he’s the type of person you can’t help but love for his sunny personality.
On the other hand, Kang So-ra plays a full-time part-timer who graduated from a no-name school and comes from a common background. No matter how much she tries, she’s been unable to become hired as a full-time employee, but she’s kept her positive attitude. She’s a straightforward person who can’t stand to see injustice happening before her eyes. Her journey into love begins when Siwon moves into her neighborhood, in his shabby poor man disguise.
This drama will be Siwon’s first project since being discharged from the army. Has it really already been two years since She Was Pretty? Wow, time flies fast, but I remember him as being the highlight of that drama, which made me shed even more fangirl tears when he left to fulfill his military service. So I’m excited to see him back in dramaland, especially with Kang So-ra, who has that quirky awkward-cute vibe that I think would mesh well with Choi Siwon’s acting style.
Saturday-Sunday rom-com Revolutionary Love will begin in October, after the end of Live Up to Your Name on tvN.
