Sohn Ho-joon, Jo Boa get matchmade in KBS Drama Special
We have more fall lineup news with KBS’s announcement that Sohn Ho-joon (Blow Breeze) and Jo Boa (The Man Living in Our House ) will be in a Drama Special called Let Us Meet, Joo-oh (a play on words for Please Let Us Meet).
It’s about Gyeongseong’s trendiest modern boy and the girl who wanted to marry so much that she signed up for a matchmaking service. Then there’s Joo-oh, the male couple manager who is stuck in the middle trying to convince them of their compatibility. Gyeongseong was the old name of the capital before it became Seoul, back during the Japanese occupation era, so I’m hoping for a cute rom-com feel amidst the period backdrop.
Jo Boa confirmed her role back in July, and Sohn Ho-joon confirmed his recently. His last drama role was in Blow Breeze, a long family weekend drama, which was also his first time in a main lead role. Jo Boa has been a leading lady before in Surplus Princess where she played a naive mermaid-out-of-water, but has been mostly playing second leads ever since (Monster, The Man Living in Our House). But they both have pretty good comedic timing, so I’m looking forward to their chemistry together.
Let Us Meet, Joo-oh will be one of ten Drama Specials that will air starting September 3 on KBS. Other actors that have signed onto some of the other Drama Specials include B1A4’s Jinyoung, Jang Dong-yoon, Chae Soo-bin, and Ra Mi-ran.
