Kim Woo-bin and Suzy’s new drama Lightly, Ardently heads to KBS
It’s not a done deal yet, but we might be seeing the new romance drama Lightly, Ardently starring Kim Woo-bin (Heirs) and Suzy (Gu Family Book) on our screens this coming spring. The drama is in negotiations to secure a spot on KBS’s 2016 schedule, and is being planned for the Wednesday-Thursday timeslot following the Song Hye-gyo and Song Joong-ki melodrama Descended From the Sun.
The series is the latest outing from writer Lee Kyung-hee, of Nice Guy, Will It Snow for Christmas, Thank You, A Love to Kill, and I’m Sorry, I Love You, among others. Her last drama was the longer weekend family series Wonderful Season, but she’ll be returning to the miniseries format with this new project. Her last two shows were at KBS as well, so it seems likely it’ll find a home there.
The story is about a couple torn apart in their youth due to unfortunate circumstances, who reunite as adults and fall in love. Kim Woo-bin plays a cold and cynical top star who doesn’t care a lick about other people’s feelings, while Suzy plays a documentary PD who goes from sweet and innocent in her youth to servile and materialistic as an adult.
I’m a little concerned about them carrying an ardent love story (okay, so I’m a leetle more worried about Suzy, let’s be real) — but I’m rooting for them in earnest because I’d like to see them both turn the corner with this drama. Is it hoping for too much? I am ready to give you ALL OF THE TEARS. Just take them from me, please.
If Lightly, Ardently secures the KBS Wednesday-Thursday timeslot, it’ll follow Descended From the Sun in April.
