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.

KSR's role looks so much like Ahn young Yi and no problem if it actually turns out to be like it too. But I hope this one gets subbed. What is the problem with tvn shows lately? I am still waiting for Argon to be subbed. Doesnt seem like it will be recapped in DB too.

What a pretty cast! I am so excited to see all three leads, and like his character it is impossible to hate Siwon the actor.

The setup feels so cliche, so I am looking forward to find out what makes their love revolutionary in the story.

Hehe Siwon's character is similar to his SWP role but I aint complaining. With this super familiar setup, I am hoping for character depth and development and one hella chemistry for the OTP.

This just made me laugh uncontrollably which is painful because it triggered hiccups.

Siwon's a pretty solid actor in supporting roles, so I'm curious to see how he'll do in a lead role. His performances in She Was Pretty and King of Dramas were quite good. Kang So-ra is pretty good in general so no problems there.

Gong Myung is shit. No idea how he's landed a major role after his performances. Clearly, the acting part doesn't actually matter with some people.

Honestly, I feel like Bi-ryeom was just a really terribly written character. Kinda like Ji Soo's Gook-do in Strong Woman Do Bong-soon. He's really not that terrible.

Agree, Gong Myung is decent for a young actor.

Gong Myung is charming. He did well in Drinking solo, I found him adorable there. And in BotWG he came across as mischievous and a bit tormented, even sexy :) it's not his fault that the writing was so bad and the show ended up being such a mess. The boy has potential and will get more opportunities. I'm glad he was cast here, I like the three of them and most likely will watch this.

I also found Gong Myung adorable in Drinking Solo, especially liked his smiling eyes. BotWG had such wonderful teasers, it's a pity the script didn't live up to expectations. Siwon and Kang So Ra are also on my favourites list, so am definitely looking forward to this drama.

You should watch Individualist Ms. Ji Young. It's only two episodes. I think he did well in that short drama along with his co-lead.

Hmm.. The premise wasn't much to get excited about but he teasers kind of made me excited. Maybe I just missed Siwon so much. I hope this doesn't take too much time out of his comeback preparations though.

Come at me Siwon fans, but I was really excited for this drama, until I found out he was in it... I'm not going to support anything that homophobic ----- is in.

Too bad since I love Kang So-ra and the PD.

Between all the amazing philanthropist work he's doing worldwide with UNICEF, preparing the SJ comeback, and now this deama, I wonder when Choi Siwon finds time to breathe. Looking forward to seeing this talented actor steal the show in yet another drama! It sounds standard but he's going to make it great anyway; he has a history of doing this.

I know right. Siwon has been working so hard ever since he got out from military. I just hope that he won't be overworked that could jeopardize his health.

Yeah, I'm concerned about that too. He's so hardworking, but his staff posted something yesterday where they said he was "somehow still handsome" (lol of course) "but relying on coffee to survive and not sleeping" ://// I really hope he takes better care of himself.

For once I just want a story of how the over-qualified butler-secretary-friend got the girl, freed himself from the shadows of his employer-burden-friend, and finds his own self worth.

Haha they actually courted him while he was in the army. Iirc, SM said he had a lot of lead offers, so he was trying to choose the right one. Hope it was a good choice!
