Matching frequencies for Radio Romance’s first teaser
It’s all sweetness and light for Radio Romance’s first teaser, which was just released and features the series leads, Yoon Doo-joon (Let’s Eat 2) and Kim So-hyun (Ruler—Master of the Mask), in a romantic moment on the job. (Those K-drama workplaces, so bustling with romance; how do they ever get any work done?)
The teaser opens as Doo-joon grabs Kim So-hyun’s hand and smiles at her, and he says, “But still, you’re the prettiest.” Then as he places headphones on her head and leans in for a kiss, she asks the question that was posed by the opening words onscreen: “Is it true that if your frequencies match, you’ll meet your true love?”
I am trying (really trying! Very hard!) to be open to this romance, because there is no uncomfortable age gap in the storyline between a star radio DJ who can’t do anything off-script and the radio writer he falls for. It’s just my meta knowledge of the show casting a younger actress to play older, so if the show is cute and sweet and well-made, it shouldn’t matter… right?
I do find the character setup cute, where he needs a script in order to work, and she’s great at all aspects of her job except actually the writing part. Hee. Kim So-hyun’s junior writer character scrambles to survive in a radio station where one’s career lives or dies by ratings, and she’s the one who pursues Yoon Doo-joon, trying to bring him to her station, kicking off their bickering relationship.
Radio Romance will be KBS’s next Monday-Tuesday drama following Jugglers, and premieres on January 29.
