Jung Kyung-ho joins Heartless City castmates in drama short
Aw, I love real-life bromance even better than onscreen bromance, and we’re getting a big dose of it from Jung Kyung-ho (Endless Love). He’s making a special appearance in his buddy Yoon Hyun-min’s new drama short House, Mate, an upcoming installment of MBC’s Drama Festival, which highlights up-and-coming writers and directors in short-form dramas.
The two actors became good friends after their 2013 JTBC drama Heartless City, and Jung Kyung-ho is reportedly joining the drama as a show of support for his friend, with no pre-planned character or storyline. Not only that, but Yoon Hyun-min’s costar in the drama also happens to be Nam Gyuri, which makes it one big three-way Heartless City reunion. Meta jokes are not optional at this point.
The drama short stars Yoon Hyun-min as a man who was betrayed by his wife and his best friend (yeouuuch, I hope that’s not the role Jung Kyung-ho is in for), leaving him deeply emotionally scarred. He then meets a woman (played by Nam Gyuri) who shows up like a lighthouse in his life, to guide his path. It’s not a lot of story information to go on, but then, the show is only one hour in total. The stills below are from the drama’s first shoots with the leads.
MBC’s Drama Festival is currently underway on Sunday nights, and House, Mate will air sometime in November. Heartless City fans, mark your calendars!
