Stills from JTBC’s romance drama Could We Love

Romance drama Could We Love, the loose follow-up drama to JTBC’s Could We Marry, is gearing up production for its premiere next month and is starting to release stills from its early shoots. (They’re coming out in a slow trickle, but better slow than nothing.) The series is the one centering around three late-thirties friends in various stages of life/romance, starring Eugene as the bubbly and forthright heroine who divorces after ten years of marriage and moves in with her son to her mother’s crumbling villa.

Eugene’s friends are played by Choi Jung-yoon and Kim Yumi, who are on opposite ends of the dating/romance spectrum: Choi Jung-yoon is a longtime housewife and mother, while Kim Yumi’s character is an elegant singleton. The three ladies are friends of 20 years, having met back in high school, and the drama follows their love lives and careers in a sort of I Need Romance for a slightly older set.

Uhm Tae-woong and Kim Sung-soo are the two leading men, colleagues, and probable love rivals. While Kim Sung-soo plays the CEO of a film company, Uhmforce is a star director whose stills below depict him stepping out onto the red carpet for a big event. I’m just glad he got rid of that (Goguryeo Nickleback) Jesus hair for this role, because let’s be honest, it was hard taking him seriously with that mane o’ shame getting in the way during Sword and Flower. Although one could argue that more got in the way of Sword and Flower than mere hairdos.

A series like Could We Love has a pretty simple premise so its success is hugely contingent on its execution, so it’s a good thing to have PD Kim Yoon-chul onboard; last year’s Could We Marry was a bit of a sleeper hit for JTBC, garnering solid word of mouth and positive reception. On the other hand, nothing’s a sure bet: writing is Park Min-jung, whose last credits were Standby and All My Love, two rather flawed sitcoms for MBC. So I’ll watch with hopeful optimism, but I’m not gonna get too far ahead of myself with excitement.

Could We Love will take over the Monday-Tuesday slot that will soon be vacated by Your Neighbor’s Wife, and premieres on January 6.

This is another drama I'll keep my eye out on. I'm hopinggg that this will be redemption for Eugene and Um Tae Woong had this year...both were in craptastic dramas which account for two of the worst dramas of 2013 (for me at least). It looks promising though, so I'm hopeful :)

You are right about Eugene, she just can't perform as an actress no matter what drama she is in. You are wrong about Uhm Tae Woong, he was really good in Sword & Flower and in whatever project he undertakes. This romeo and juliet style historical love story was very original and Shakespearean in nature, or rather more like the best Japanese period pieces, with a Zen-like style of storytelling. It is understandable that for average viewers of K-drama catered to the youngsters or to the masses to say it was a flop. It was a fine piece of modern K-drama making. If you go to dramafever you will read many good reviews that explain why this S&F was a fine work of art to be appreciated. Their love story is told through symbols, the inherent stupidity of the political struggle within the Goguryo Kingdom, the internal conflict that destroyed their love and eventually the Kingdom.

I am glad to add this to my list of what I'll watch but, what really caught my eye was Crazy Heir Daddy! That man has been especially busy this year. I feel like I have seen him in everything. I wonder if he will be not crazy this time around...just saying.

Crazy Heir Daddy was actually a very nice man in Scent of a Woman. His consequential portrayal of a man with less-desirable traits may be rooted from his adequate portrayal of a steel-heart judge in I Hear Your Voice ;D

He played a wonderful, memorable, much-missed father in You're the Best, Lee Soon Shin. So warm.

He tends to do better sageuk villain, where his restraint and slow delivery work more effectively than in dramas set in the modern day.

I read that as Crazy Hair Daddy at first and wondered who on earth you were talking about, lol.

Crazy Heir Daddy actually has a long history of playing nice, warm, harmless old men. I've seen him in so many of those roles over the years that I feel that's his real persona.

He played a villain in Nine, and IMO, did a really lousy job. It was Over the top and unbelievable/laughable. His Crazy Heir Daddy was tuned down, but still not played well. Dramaland seems to be in need of more old men to play villains such that he gets drafted.

I weirded myself out cuz I couldn't recognize Eugene unni in the first pic, but then realized it was her in the last one hhaha But about the premise, it looks cute, simple and promising enough that I'll tune in (heck, I'll tune into anything that Eugene unni does ^.^), and I'm glad that she's finally getting her wish in being able to try a single-parent role =) And with Uhm-force as her partner to boot!! kekeke Can't wait!!!

Have to say I am impressed that such big names are doing cable dramas! The times they are a changing, and way to go cable stations! I mean they've had some of my favorite dramas of late, so I am sure jTBC will bring their A game! I am looking forward to this pairing it could really turn out well, they're both very talented at their craft. Also a pretty good supporting cast is never a bad thing :)

I'm excited to watch it! Love both Eugene & Tae Woong, but their last dramas failed to impress me. I also hope this drama will have "Dalja's spring" vibe.

For a moment there, i thought that 2 of the 3 girls were Lee Na Young and Han Chae-Ah until i read the post.

Uhm-Force~~♥ And buddy Lee Seon Kyu in Miss Korea~~♥ How i wish they were in the same drama. That would make Korea implode from all the awesomeness.

Kim Yumi! I loved her in Heartless City, good to see the station recognising a good thing when they see it and giving her more work.

this is a fresh pairing! eugene and uhm tae-woong. i've come to really like eugene. from what i watched of 100 year inheritance, i think she has a very warm, sweet screen presence. and her acting has certainly improved from her early days. i've just always thought she could pick trendier, fun-ner stuff i could watch her properly in, so this seems like a step in the direction i hoped for her. i'm a fan of these i-need-romance/SATC-esque shows, with their frank discussions on Everything. and i'm a fan of her beauty show—she just seems so super sweet, along with the other mcs as well. great chemistry there.

kim sung-soo i'm not so thrilled about. the man literally bores me to tears. i don't know why, he really does literally make me yawn every single time. it's really amazing how his acting hasn't improved/changed a bit since full house (where he was also terribly bland)

but i'm guessing uhm tae-woong is the real male lead, so hopefully kim will have a more sideline role...

I think Kim sung soo is one of talented actor not bland like you said, I see most of his drama, he's one actor that make me love from one project to another because i could see different side of him, eventhought most of his role is sad drama
When i first watch him in full house i haven't really like him as actor because his charracter doesn't need really strong acting so i thought he's just usual actor but i notice him in bad love, his second drama that i watch, basicly i watch that drama because of Kwon Sang woo n Lyw but end up loving him more than other

I remember Eugene was up to play the lead in Colour of woman. And now she looks a lot like that character. Someone had ruined that drama so I was glad she didn't do it.

On the other hand I am really looking forward to this drama. Look at that beautiful cast!
