Kisses and post-breakup bitterness in Discovery of Romance

The great thing about a rom-com where your lead characters are exes is that you can just go ahead and start the promo with lovey-dovey cuteness — the happier they are at the outset, the harder they fall. The first set of teasers are out for KBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama Discovery of Romance, showing Eric and Jung Yumi as gooey giddy lovers in one, to suddenly bitter and sarcastic exes in the next. It looks like their breakup will have as many fireworks as their romance, which makes their reunion something to look forward to.

The first teaser has them sharing kisses in a park as a happy couple, but the interview-style teasers that follow ask about their dating history. Eric: “Romance (dating)? Uh… what’s that?” Jung Yumi: “I don’t even want to think about that person.” Jung Yumi: “He didn’t even know he got dumped!” Eric: “[Crazy laugh] #$*)@$*@&)!!!” Hee. And in the last one, they stand awkwardly with her new boyfriend Sung Joon, who asks what they’re supposed to do now.

The romantic comedy from the writer of the I Need Romance franchise stars Jung Yumi as the furniture designer heroine who has to deal with the reappearance of her ex-boyfriend Eric while juggling her current relationship with Sung Joon. I know, first world problems. It looks like she gets her fair share of smooches from both guys on her way to finding true love. Yoon Jin-yi (Mandate of Heaven) co-stars as a friend who’s had a crush on Sung Joon for ages, and Yoon Hyun-min (Witch’s Romance) and Kim Seul-gi (Flower Boy Next Door) round out the cast.

Discovery of Romance follows Trot Lovers and premieres August 18.

I'm so excited to see this reunion. Eric-Jung Yumi's chemistry is no joke. The plot seems interesting. Hate-love relationship around adults while working together….OMG….. can't wait…can't wait…But I don't like his hair style. They should change his hair style when he enters the CEO period…I wanna see hottie Eric again…TT….TT...

Umm i do get what u mean. It'll be mice to differentiate the period. But then i do know a guy who has the same hair style for more than 20 years.. from high school until now.

I admit Eric is one of the guy who can fit in any hair style but don't know I prefer him with longer hair like his past days…This hair style is too short. Just my opinion. Anyway, looking forward to see his acting again. Can't wait.

This looks like a cable show...disappointed that it's not! Oh well, I've been in a perpetual rom-com mood all year, so I'm looking forward to this. This is a dramaland reunion I think I will immensely enjoy.

Aww, can't wait to watch this drama. Love all the cast ! The chemistry between Eric & Youmi is awesome :)

Btw, for those who like Sung Joon, do you guys know he's into photography and drawing. I didn't know that until yesterday when he posted some very beautiful pics of Jung So-min - his costar in "Can we get married" on his Instagram (@thuggyduck) !!

I didn't realize just how young Sungjoon is until he captioned one of Jung Somin's picture "Somin Noona". Holy cow, dude is such a baby still...

I'm so excited!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!
Got so happy when I saw this on here, lol. I've been waiting for promo.

Can't wait to see these two together again, I've been looking forward to it for so long. I also like the interview style teasers. I watched Very Ordinary Couple not too long ago; that was done in a documentary style and I enjoyed it a lot. It'd be cool if the drama was like that but I'll take anything really. I'm just so happy T_T

Ooh the first thing that popped into my head (besides how ridiculously cute the leads look together) was Very Ordinary Couple as well! It's the docu-style of the teasers which yeah, would actually be quite cool and different to see if they keep it up in the drama.

Side note: YAY IT'S RAINING ROM-COMS!!! *happy dance*

Hope it never stops! Because there's no such thing as too much of a good thing lalalala *singsongs in denial*.

Don't care if they all turn out to be cliches, so long as it's executed well I'm a happy camper.

Glad I'm not the only one to think that :D
It would be awesome to see.

And agree~ Rom-coms are very formulaic, so it's all up to execution in how it will stand out or how enjoyable it will be. Looking forward to it.

Eric and Yumi have a chemistry that sizzles on-screen. It makes their pairing seem believable....

Now why did I think that this show was on cable? Does that mean we will be denied them tingling smooches between Eric, Sung Joon and Jung Yumi?

^which sounds weirdly threesome. *perv alert*

Because Eric was made for cable.

sorry if this question is stupid, but... what exactly does it mean that this show is "on cable"? And how is that linked to kissing onscreen?

Cable shows have better kissing scenes!

Cable channels have fewer restrictions than the big networks so they don't have to worry so much about being family friendly or inoffensive. That's why shows like I Need Romance and Secret Love Affair are taken up by cable channels. Then they can actually show characters enjoying kissing (instead of freezing and looking like statues) and having sex even when they aren't married without people kicking up a fuss. This show, however, is not on cable so the kisses will probably be of the initiated by the man while the woman does not react AT ALL or looks like she's terrified variety. But I could be wrong! I was quite surprised to see a kiss initiated by the woman in the teaser even.

ahhhhh I understand now, thanks for explaining so well! I hope so too then, because I've been looking forward to this drama so much after seeing Eric Mun and Jung Yumi in Que Sera Sera (which was far from being conventional or prudish)...

There are dramas that have good kissing scenes that aren't on cable, but it's always an unexpected and happy surprise when you get a drama that's like that. And there's usually only 1 good one. I have wondered for a while why it seems like there aren't any more dramas given the same freedom as, say, Coffee Prince was on the major networks...

I have hope. Que Sera Sera wasn't on a cable channel, either, lol.

I hope we get to see Eric being cute and sweet like his character in super rookie. I prefer him that way over being the cool and aloof guy.

I just hate Jung Yumi right now.

She got to kiss Eric AND Sung Joon. She must be saving an entire continent in her past life or something.

Ugh.

Eric and Yumi are perfect OMG I can't WAIT.

And Spinach is in THIS, too? I love the fact that he gets to show up in dramas all over the place and steal scenes.
He's so relaxed and effective in those roles.
Let's keep him there for a little, then he can pick the PERFECT lead role for his big shot at fame with a strong script that plays to his strengths...and forces him to wear white slacks.

SQQUUUEEE!!! Kisses!! Eric and Yumi really exudes the part of lovers in those stills. For a second there, i thought JB was breaking dating news of them being a real couple. Man......i really hope that they transcend drama and make a family together for real. They're just too cute together. I really REALLY cannot wait for this!
