Joo Jin-mo heads to JTBC for heartbreaking romance drama
If you’re a fan of Joo Jin-mo (Empress Ki), you’ll be happy to hear that he is heading to cable for his next project, JTBC’s Beloved Eun-dong, to air in June.
It’s a drama about… well, that’s the catch — I’m not quite sure how to finish that thought. After poring over all the articles about this drama, I still didn’t know how to make all of the puzzle parts fit together, so I figured I’d just lay out all the pieces and let you guys decide how to connect the dots. Sort of like Choose Your Own Adventure, but without an answer key?
- Joo Jin-mo plays Ji Eun-ho.
- Eun-dong is his love interest.
- The drama depicts the “fateful love” (also a “noble and pure love”) entangling a man and woman over twenty years.
- It will also tell a heartbreaking story of “a love that cannot be” with an “analog sensibility” and emotion.
- Joo’s character Eun-ho cannot forget the love from his youth, Eun-dong, and is pure-hearted in his love for her.
- Eun-ho is also a top actor.
- Through Eun-dong, Eun-ho is “reborn into a good person.”
- After some time passes, he meets Eun-dong again, and “returns to his adolescence.”
- Eun-dong has a teenage child.
- Directing is PD Lee Tae-gon of My Neighbor’s Wife, Queen Dowager Insoo, Smile You, and The Last Scandal of My Life.
- Beloved Eun-dong will be a Friday-Saturday drama, following Falling For Innocence, which premieres next weekend.
Does he return to his adolescence literally, or it a metaphor? Is he at time-traveler, body-swapper, or just trapped in his emotions? Why is he reborn into a good person? If he’s so pure-hearted in his love for Eun-dong, why does he only turn into a good person after meeting her again? Why can’t they be together? Why is their love so sad? Why won’t the producers tell us things that are relevant?
