The cute germ shakes up the germaphobe in JTBC’s First, Clean Passionately

It’s kind of weird to think that Kim Yoo-jung’s been missing from dramaland for a whole two years since the hit series Moonlight Drawn By Clouds. Which is why I’m all the more excited to welcome her back with JTBC’s First, Clean Passionately, the rom-com about two people on either spectrum of the cleanliness scale. And her co-stars are not too shabby either, with Yoon Kyun-sang (Mysterious Il-seung) and Song Jae-rim (Secret Mother) playing her leading men.

The latest teaser starts off with Yoon Kyun-sang’s character, Jang Sun-kyul, going about his daily routine, which happens to include inspecting every nook and cranny for the slightest smudge or trace of dirt. The captions call his obsession with cleanliness his one fatal weakness in his otherwise perfect persona, and we see him use a handkerchief to open his car door, and wipe down tables and chairs with hilarious precision in public.

Sun-kyul meets his match though, as Kim Yoo-jung’s Gil Oh-sol literally stops him in his tracks, chip crumbs decorating the sides of her mouth. I almost feel bad to see how attacked he looks, as the trailer announces that a “cute germ has appeared to shake the germ-less man’s daily life.” He might try to avoid touching her as best he can, but an apparently drunk Oh-sol isn’t deterred, stuffing a wad of paper into his pocket, prompting Sun-kyul to let out an anguished wail worthy of any tragic hero. But of course, his nervous attempts to avoid her gives way to rom-com-esque gazing from afar, and a man offscreen questions whether Sun-kyul miiigghhhhtttt be feeling some feelings for Oh-sol in response to her musing whether she is just that unattractive.

I’m a little disappointed by the lack of Song Jae-rim so far in these promos, but all these characters seem to have a little quirk in them, so I can see the actor fitting right in with his drama co-stars. I’m generally happy by the quality of this show’s supporting cast, with Yoo Sun (Criminal Minds) playing the sharp and trusted Secretary Kwon, and dramaland’s go-to scene-stealer Kim Won-hae (Player) playing Oh-sol’s father. Min Do-hee (My ID Is Gangnam Beauty) also makes her return to JTBC as Oh-sol’s best friend.

First, Clean Passionately will take over JTBC’s Monday-Tuesday slot from currently airing Beauty Inside, premiering on November 26.

But Jae Rim's character looks like he has so much fun ! Living in a rooftop with beautiful city view, wearing cute tracksuit all day long, reading manhwa, eating popsicle, and have a neighbor as cute as Kim Yoo Jung. I'd love to be him btw 😁

Cos before they released the character description, I was hoping that he'll just be a funny (scene-stealing) rooftop ajusshi >___< If you're him, I'd love to be your neighbor!

Seriously they almost killed me with all of their drama promotions, not a single day without me squealing over their cuteness, and their latest promotion in Knowing Brother.. *melted* 😍 I fell in love harder than before..

(Just want to give a reminder, I hope you will check their Knowing Bros episode on November 24, 2018 😉)

Thanks for your latest update on FIRST, CLEAN PASSIONATELY, @tipsymocha. Yoon Kyun-sang looks absolutely spiffy in his suit. In the stills, Song Jae-rim is looking sporty in his tracksuits. I'm just glad that none of them are sequined. ;-)

Yoo-jung, Kyun-sang, and Jae-rim look so adorable, I want to squish them! Lol

I'm hankering for a fluffy romcom (or just plain com) right now. Hopefully this one hits the spot.

Yeah my first thought when the premiere dates were confirmed was that my Moonlight puppies would be returning onscreen on the same week. Thank goodness Boyfriend and CWPFN aren't directly competing with each other. I don't want to have to choose between them even if I can't affect Korean TV ratings.

Honestly though, it feels like that happens ALL the time. When two ex-costars star in different dramas at the same time... XD

They finally gave YKS a good hairstyle that suits him! I will check this out, since it looks so cute and I like KYJ (the female lead) and am neutral to YKS (the male lead). Hopefully the drama will be good.

Heroine surely knows how to frustrate the hero.
If i wes in his place, i would have lashed out at her(not make the comic face). That's fiction for you. A place where exist no personal space/boundary.

For all my love of rom-coms this doesn't give any hope that will be entertaining or memorable. If anything it looks very generic and full of cliches.
