Baek Sung-hyun headlines romantic comedy web drama
Baek Sung-hyun (IRIS 2) will be pulling double duty online next month, as he’ll be starring in two web dramas set to premiere around the same time. He was recently cast in the upcoming web series Love Cells, where he’ll play a top idol; he’s now been cast to headline a different 6-episode web drama called Dreaming Executive, where he plays a young business executive who learns how to dream of something other than success in the workplace.
The short series is a romantic comedy about young twentysomethings, and Baek Sung-hyun stars as a successful IT businessman whose sole joy in life is work. He works so hard that he leaves little room for anything else, and lives every day like it’s a battleground out there. Idol Jeon Ji-yoon (of 4Minute) plays the strong and cheerful heroine who’s a carefree spirit. She was influenced by her traveler mother, and runs a food blog where she chases down cuisine from all over the world.
They end up living together unexpectedly, and she’ll influence him with her optimism, until he begins to dream and find courage to try new things. It’s described as a sweet and fresh love story with warm characters, which sounds very appealing. It’ll be the first acting project for Jeon Ji-yoon, so we’ll have to see about her, but I’ve liked Baek Sung-hyun in everything I’ve seen him in. Hopefully the web dramas will be worthwhile, and next year, let’s see you in more TV dramas, yeah?
Dreaming Executive plans to premiere in mid-October.
