Eric and Jung Yumi confirm Discovery of Romance
The reunion bug is officially an epidemic this year. Jung Yumi (God of the Workplace) and Eric (Myung-wol the Spy) have both confirmed the new KBS romantic comedy Discovery of Romance, where they’ll play–wait for it–reunited lovers. How’s that for art imitating life? The ex-costars of 2007’s Que Sera Sera will be reigniting some sparks onscreen, though ideally in a happier context. In the words of javabeans: “Let’s hope their romance is functional this time.”
The new rom-com reunites Jung Yumi with the writer of the cable franchise I Need Romance, and Eric has been cast as the ex-boyfriend who reenters her life while she’s dating a new guy. This writer seems inordinately fixated on the perpetually breaking up and re-dating couple, so the setup seems a bit obvious, but then most rom-com plots are, at least on paper. The good news is that these actors have chemistry together, which goes a long way.
Jung Yumi has signed on to play the furniture designer whose current relationship hits a snag when Eric the ex reenters the picture. Eric plays the president of an interior design company, so they’ll undoubtedly be connected through her work. He’s described as a smart, confident man with a strong competitive edge who always gets what he wants. But when it comes to relationships, he’s a hopeless romantic. The drama will be about each of them discovering what true love is as they reunite.
Discovery of Romance follows Trot Lovers on Mondays and Tuesdays this August.
