Revolutionary Love teases three diverse resumes for its leads
A mini-teaser for tvN’s Revolutionary Love has been released, introducing our three main characters via resume. The drama, directed by Oh Hae-young Again’s PD Song Hyun-wook and written by Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki’s writer Joo Hyun, will be a rom-com about a chaebol with a hidden identity and a hardworking but dirt-poor heroine.
Siwon (She Was Pretty) plays the chaebol heir who’s out to prove that he’s more than just his family name. His leading lady will be played by Kang So-ra (Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho), and his secretary-cum-shadow who dreams of surpassing him will be played by Gong Myung (Bride of the Water God 2017). Third-generation chaebol Siwon disguises himself as an unemployed slacker, but having been spoon-fed his entire life, he obviously possesses zero survival skills. He moves into Kang So-ra’s neighborhood, where all the working-hard-but-getting-nowhere youths live in their tiny one-room apartments.
In the teaser, we see that Siwon has no relevant work experience or certificates, but he has the one thing that is worth more than both: a powerful family. It’s written on his resume that his father is the CEO and his brother is the general manager for the company they’re all applying for, Kangsu Group. Despite his complete naivety at basic life skills and his narcissism, he has a bright personality, which will make it hard to hate him.
On the other hand, we have Kang So-ra’s resume, which is filled with a variety of certificates—everything from farm technician to food manufacturing. However, the actual experience she has is only through part-time jobs like waitressing and working at a construction site. Despite her chock-full resume, she’s still a full-time part-timer. In her voiceover portion, she says, “People like us who have nothing must keep our heads on straight and live with a determined mindset.”
Gong Myung is both Siwon’s best friend and the responsible one who gets him out of trouble every time. He has a first-class resume, having aced language tests despite never having stepped foot in a different country. His work experiences are also stellar, showing that he works at the secretarial office for Kangsu Group, but it looks like he’s also suffering on the inside due to his low family status. In previous synopses, his father was said to be the chauffeur of Siwon’s father, and that he strives to break out of the “servant” class and be on equal terms with Siwon. He closes the teaser by saying “I will endure whatever insults come my way.”
Saturday-Sunday drama Revolutionary Love begins this fall on on October 14.
