Jung Kyung-ho, Yoo Inna courted for tvN legal office drama
Life on Mars star Jung Kyung-ho is ready for his next drama—he’s been offered the lead role in Reach of Sincerity, which is based on a KakaoPage web comic series by the same name. Yoo Inna (The Lonely Shining Goblin) is the top contender to be his leading lady. Definitely a cute matchup if it happens.
Reach of Sincerity is an office romance between a prickly, successful lawyer and his down-on-her-luck secretary. It sounds like every other legal office rom-com so far, but here’s the twist: The secretary is not a secretary at all.
She’s actually a famous top star whose innocent one-sided infatuation on a third-generation chaebol heir ended in scandal and disgrace. Now, she’s trying to make her way back by disguising herself as Jung Kyung-ho’s secretary because he’s close with a director who can make or break her career.
That’s not even the best part. The PD for Reach of Sincerity is Park Joon-hwa, who has been on a streak of producing top-notch rom-coms. Some credits to his name include What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim, Because This Life Is Our First, the first two seasons of Let’s Eat, and Bring It On, Ghost. All were winners in my book, so I can’t wait for this new one to come out.
Reach of Sincerity is slated to begin airing in January, after the end of the Song Hye-gyo/Park Bo-gum drama Boyfriend.
