Lee Chung-ah at Flower Boy Ramyun Shop’s teaser shoot
I know I’ve done my share of squealing over Jung Il-woo (49 Days), hero of the new tvN romantic comedy Flower Boy Ramyun Shop…and yes, maybe more than my share, at that. But I’m not forgetting the heroine, played by the funny and talented Lee Chung-ah (Accidental Couple, Pure Pumpkin Flower), who looks downright adorable in these photos taken from the set of the drama’s teaser shoot.
In the drama, Lee Chung-ah plays a former volleyball player and current gym class student teacher at a high school, which is a bit of a tweak from earlier descriptions. (Perhaps the character was modified, or perhaps the initial reports were just vague.) Somehow, she ends up running a ramyun shop alongside her high-school-chaebol hero (Jung Il-woo), falls into a love triangle with him and her talented chef (Lee Ki-woo), and manages the staff of high school pretty boys.
Not a bad life, eh? The setup is just rife with potential for inappropriate crushes, hilariously awkward moments between (student) teacher and student(s), and adorable characters. It sounds like a hoot.
Lee said of her role, “I chose this drama because the character is so appealing, but now I’ve totally fallen for the charm of my fellow actors. It makes me think of when I filmed the movie Temptation of Wolves, and it makes me want to reappear as that character in Flower Boy Ramyun Shop. I hope you’ll look forward to it.”
Flower Boy Ramyun Shop premieres on October 31.
