Lee Dong-wook and Yoo Inna take the bickering to court in tvN’s Reach of Sincerity
I love a good bickering-their-way-to-love romance, and we know that these two actors have the chemistry in spades to pull off a particularly fun iteration of that drama trope. Reach of Sincerity has released two character teasers for our leads Lee Dong-wook (Life) and Yoo Inna (The Lonely Shining Goblin), and I really like how the show drops us right off with the two in mid-bicker.
First up is Lee Dong-wook’s Kwon Jung-rok, whose teaser starts with him strutting his stuff as we see his profiles printed in newspapers, telling us that he has a case success rate of 90% and that he was awarded 2019’s Lawyer of the Year. His law firm is known for its winning streak, and he is their star attorney. So, basically, he’s a genius, high-flying lawyer. Of course he is.
The papers all wonder what case Jung-rok will take on next, and hilariously, it sounds like it’ll be against Yoo Inna’s Oh Yoon-seo, a Hallyu actress who has gone undercover as Jung-rok’s secretary in order to get experience for a film role. Jung-rok announces to the gathered reporters that he’ll be suing Oh Yoon-seo for fraud and demanding compensation for emotional distress. That prompts Yoon-seo, who is watching the announcement on her phone, to declare that she will destroy him.
Yoon-seo’s teaser starts with a series of black-and-white shots of her in the middle of a photoshoot, when she’s asked what her next role is. She answers that her character is a tragic heroine who suffers under Kwon Jung-rok’s psychotic perfectionism. In a reversal of the previous teaser, Jung-rok watches her interview on his computer, and slams his hand down on his desk, as he declares that he will take this all the way “legally.”
Reach of Sincerity will follow Boyfriend on tvN’s Wednesday-Thursday slot, starting on February 6.
