Lee Dong-gun and L to join Shin Hye-sun on new KBS fantasy drama
Lee Dong-gun (Fox Bride Star) and L, also known as Kim Myung-soo, (Miss Hammurabi) have been added to new KBS drama Dan, Only Love.
The two actors will be joining Shin Hye-sun (Thirty But Seventeen) who confirmed casting last month.
The story of Dan, Only Love is a fantasy romance involving a cold-hearted ballerina and a mischievous angel.
Taking on the role of the ballerina is Shin Hye-sun. The character’s name is Lee Yeon-seo and is described as a rare beauty to behold, but underneath, her personality is like ice.
L will be playing the angel, Dan. He’s bright and optimistic, but also a playful prankster who’s always causing trouble.
Lee Dong-gun will then be playing Ji Kang-woo, artistic director at the ballet company. He’s well known in artistic circles for having an exceptionally discerning eye and skilled at drawing out hidden talents and abilities of the dancers.
I’m a little wary of the writer, Choi Yoon-kyo, who previously worked on Lucky Romance. However, directing is PD Lee Jung-seob who has several solid credits including Hong Gil Dong, Healer, and Neighborhood Lawyer Jo Deul-ho 1. PD Lee was also the director of Seven Day Queen and Dan, Only Love will be his second time working with Lee Dong-gun.
I’m torn as I’m not sure how the drama will be incorporating the fantasy element of the story and I’m having trouble trying to wrap my mind around how angels and ballet connect. However, I do like fantasy and sci-fi stories so it would be really awesome if the drama pulls it off well. The director is a plus as well and it helps that Lee Dong-gun is one of my biases. I guess I’ll keep an open mind and hope for the best for now!
Upcoming KBS drama Dan, Only Love is currently set to air later this year in May 2019.
