Seo Woo and Yoo Seung-ho as a couple
Wow, straight from high school slacker-turned-test-rocking-genius (God of Study) to wealthy heir and husband to Seo Woo? Yoo Seung-ho, you sure are moving up in the world.
New MBC special weekend drama A Woman Only Loves Once (I OBJECT!) has cast Yoo Seung-ho as the male lead, a chaebol son with a twisty birthright (of course). Seo Woo has been confirmed as his love interest: an actress with a past, who ends up in a scandal, and therefore married to Yoo’s character.
But…they’re so wee!
The series also stars Shin Eun-kyung as the string-pulling mistress-of-doom, and is set up to be a 50-episode epic tale of the lives of the filthy rich. Er, what’s new? Frankly, I’m a little tired of rich people and their birth secrets. Can’t Rich Daddy just keep it in his pants?
Hopefully the drama will do something positive for these two actors, who are fantastically expressive. If they end up married for the bulk of the run, that could be an interesting dynamic to explore.
A Woman Only Loves Once will air on MBC in October, following Kim Suro.
