Script reading for romantic comedy Sly and Single Again

Production for MBC’s upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama Sly and Single Again is underway with the cast’s first script read, led by Lee Min-jung (All About My Romance) and Joo Sang-wook (Good Doctor), who are headlining as a divorced couple scheming to rekindle their romance. Reunited lovers are certainly not anything new in dramaland, but there does seem to be an influx of Love Redux lately.

The rom-com stars Lee Min-jung as the titular sly and newly single heroine who discovers that her ex-husband Joo Sang-wook finally got his life together after their divorce and ended up a huge success. He’s now a geeenius IT engineer and chaebol, which makes him her prime target to re-woo. While she’s scheming to win him over a second time, he’s decided to get revenge on her for only wanting him when he’s rich, and thus begins their wily and counter-wily courtship dance. What, two wrongs make a right, right?

Co-starring is Kim Gyu-ri (Scandal), who plays a smart, capable heiress. She’ll be the hero’s business partner who eventually falls in love with him, which lands her in a love triangle with his ex. Newbie Seo Kang-joon (Suspicious Housekeeper) has been cast as her little brother. Hwang Bora (the adorable phony shaman friend in Arang and the Magistrate) plays Lee Min-jung’s best friend, which is great since she always makes the best of a sidekick role.

And the hero will have a buddy in idol actor L (Master’s Sun), who plays his secretary. L was the part-time clerk at the PC bang Joo Sang-wook practically lived in before becoming a success, and when he makes it, he takes the kid along and hires him as a secretary. The two will have a devoted friendship, particularly since L was by Joo Sang-wook’s side while he was suffering through his divorce. Awwww. Now I know which pairing I’ll be rooting for.

Sly and Single Again follows Miss Korea in mid-February.

I'm loving the casts so much. I hope lee min jung will have chemistry with joo sang wook though, cause that man needs some lovey dovey cute moments in a drama. It's been a long time since i last saw him playing a guy in a relationship and gets the girl.

And yes, seems like the description about joo sang wook and L story line is winning me over already. Self-made chaebol is awesome.

There's some similarity with a drama that I stopped and didn't continue watching again, Get Karl or something.

I'm not into idol at all but when I see L is part of an upcoming drama I don't know why I can't help but thinking: "oh that could be interesting". Usually whenever I see idols being cast in dramas my first thought is "oh no another idol again bleh etc"

I only saw L in master's sun where he played the younger part of SJS, so he had just a few scenes but I did enjoy them and the way he acted. That's kinda silly because I don't know what he's worth outside of this role in MS (so maybe he's not that good and was just lucky with his part in MS) but I want to believe he's doing good with acting. I really appreciated him a lot in MS. Besides the part he's been given in this drama sounds interesting to me, I'm really looking forward to it.
Don't let me down L, show me I'm doing right in believing in you! :D

And oh well he's cute, I can't resist him.

Good Doctor was mediocre but JSW (and JW) was amazing in it, so yay. L, tho... Sorry but L cannot act even if his life depends on it -.-

Joo Sang Wook had loveline in Good Doctor, though it was less lovey dovey.
I only saw L in Master's Sun, can't judge his acting skill yet but I love him in it. His storyline with Hanna quite interesting.
And he kinda reminds me of Kimbum in his early days in BoF, in which his mere smile without saying any word could melt frozen ice. ㅋㅋㅋ

His role was pretty weak/minor in Master's Sun, he was a pretty good actor in Shut Up Flower Boy Band though. Really liked his acting and his role in that show, he was one of the main characters :)

Trust Lee Minjung to get stuck in a box, refusing to move outside of her Rom-Com safety zone.

Yeah. Shame on her for trying to do work she enjoys.

Is it a safety-zone? I think that's where she shines the brightest. She's so bubbly and things with lighter tones suit here. Plus, I feel she also is someone who can have chemistry with anyone.

Wait, Midas wasn't a rom com right? Was she in that?

The more I hear about this one, the more I'm looking forward to it. The concept is pretty cute, at any rate.

The premise and setting actually sounds more interesting than the one with song jihyo and choi jin hyuk, even though admittedly i havent watched that one yet. I will keep an eye on this one though.

'Emergency Couple' got mixed reviews on Dramabeans, but it really crackles. Manages to subvert some of the cliches of last year's medical shows, and Song Ji Hyo is giving a wonderfully detailed performance.

Oh yes, I'm totally enjoying Emergency couple! I love the Song ji-hyo/Choi jin-hyuk pairing (and finally CJS is having his time as the leading guy), and I agree with you Song ji-hyo is doing great in this drama.

Yo. And, while Song Ji Hyo anchors the drama, Episode 4 features a hilarious knock-down, falling over temper-tantrum by Evil Chaebol Mother Specialist Park Joon-geum. Whose hairstyles just keep getting weirder and weirder with each drama she's in.

Oh goodness, that was so hilarious. I kept thinking Chang-min and Jin-hee would have ended up like that if they didn't get a divorce. I actually care about her storyline with her husband. And when she tried to Oppa Pout Wiggle her husband, I was in stitches.

. . . And I was so relieved when they only stuck those tubes up each other's . . . [Spoiler deleted]

Please be good! I love stories about divorced couples getting back together, but it's hard to watch them when they take place in emergency rooms! Hope this will be my fix!

I'm really excited for this drama! I love Joo Sang Wook (it's about time we see him in a new drama) and Lee Min-Jung is a favorite actress of mines. I can't believe they're acting together~ It's a wish come true! :D

I hope this drama's good. It's gonna be funny and wacky and bromantic. Seems like good stuff :D

A rom-com between divorced couple getting back together kinda similar to emergency couple except its not on cable, male lead started from being a loser to a hot rich guy and its not a medical drama. I like Joo Sang Wook and its a come back for lee min jung. I'm going to look forward to this drama.
