Gong Myung joins Revolutionary Love as Siwon’s jealous secretary
Gong Myung from Bride of the Water God 2017 has just accepted a role in the upcoming tvN drama Revolutionary Love. He was also recently considering Yoo Ji-tae’s white-collar crime drama Mad Dog, but it looks like Gong Myung will be staying in rom-com territory for now. Revolutionary Love’s main couple will be played by Siwon (She Was Pretty) and Kang So-ra (Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho), whose characters are typical K-drama lead archetypes—rich boy and poor girl. They cross paths when Siwon disguises his identity as an unemployed, carefree slacker.
Gong Myung will be the head of the secretarial team that supports the business management division of Siwon’s family company. He has known Siwon’s character since childhood, having gone through elementary and middle school with him. He’ll have elite language skills and professional qualifications, in addition to sharp intelligence and a hardworking attitude that make him stand out.
His father diligently served Siwon’s father, the CEO of the company they both work at, as a driver for many years, which allowed him to live a privileged childhood. But he’s struggled from an inferiority complex from it as well, because it seems like no matter what he does he’ll only be in Siwon’s shadow. In the drama, he’ll finally compete with Siwon as a rival for Kang So-ra’s love.
Gong Myung has been busy racking up experience, and he’s an actor to watch out for. Admittedly, I didn’t really enjoy his performance in his last fantasy manhwa adaptation Bride of the Water God 2017, but I’ve heard great things about his previous works like Drinking Solo. And with him averaging almost two dramas and a half a year, I’m sure we’ll see more of him in the future.
Revolutionary Love will follow Live Up to Your Name on the weekends starting in October.
