PD Lee Yoon-jung returns with romantic comedy for tvN
There’s been a mass exodus of drama talent to cable networks in the last few years and especially in the last few months, and among those who made the big headlines was PD Lee Yoon-jung, of Coffee Prince, Triple, and Taereung National Village. She ended her contract with MBC in May and made the move over to tvN, where she’s returning with a new drama this winter. The project, called Heart to Heart, will be a romantic comedy with her signature sensitive, breezy style.
The drama will air sometime in January, following either Valid Love (the Monday-Tuesday drama potentially starring Uhm Tae-woong that comes after My Secret Hotel), or Misaeng (the Friday-Saturday drama starring Im Shi-wan that follows Plus Nine Boys).
Not much else is known about the project that’s just now getting off the ground, but I’m always happy about more rom-coms. And PD Lee’s sensibility is right up tvN’s alley, so there seems to be a lot of anticipation about her first drama at the new network. Coffee Prince is of course considered a dramaland classic and a true gem; I didn’t love Triple because the story went absolutely nowhere, but it did have some lovely character beats and a similar overall vibe that I’d call contemplative but upbeat.
Heart to Heart won’t be on the air until January, but I hope it starts casting soon!
