She’s So Lovable adds more friends and love rivals
We’ve got more casting additions to SBS’s new music industry drama She’s So Lovable, starring Rain as a songwriter-producer agency president and Krystal (Heirs) as an aspiring singer. Following Im Joo-eun’s recent exit from the love triangle, actress Cha Ye-ryun (Gold Rainbow) has signed on to play the heroine’s rival, which makes it a reunion for her with the PD-writer team from Dr. Champ.
She’ll play a director at the agency who is sharp and professional, and harbors a one-sided crush on Rain. It seems like familiar territory for her, though I’d consider it a step up if she played a second lead who didn’t lie and cheat her way to the top. Her character is described as wealthy to begin with though, so perhaps her haughtiness is the only thing we’ll have to worry about as she clashes with the heroine.
At least Krystal gets a bestie in Lee Cho-hee, who was most recently in Flower Grandpa Investigation Unit and also played supporting roles in Wonderful Season and Age of Feeling. She plays a makeup artist who shares her tiny studio apartment with the heroine and is described as cute and quirky.
Rain also gets a best friend in Alex (Hotel King), who joins the cast as the agency’s vocal trainer in charge of their top idol group Infinite Power, led by Infinite members L and Hoya. It cracks me up that the cast is filled with so many pop stars that almost everyone goes by a single name, though I am glad they got a singer to play the vocal trainer. Also, I now demand an Alex-Rain duet to seal their bromance.
She’s So Lovable follows It’s Okay, It’s Love and premieres September 17.
