Falling in love with a stranger in Temperature of Love
I really like the contemplative feel of this teaser, and I’m excited by the prospect that this might be the tone of the show. SBS’s new romance drama Temperature of Love is on the way in a few weeks, and it features a coupling I’ve been looking forward to: Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim costars Seo Hyun-jin and Yang Se-jong are reuniting, this time in a romance between two people who fall in love, break up, and come back into each other’s lives.
The new series from Doctors, High Society, and Warm Words writer Ha Myung-hee is about contemporary relationships and a couple’s quest to find the perfect temperature of love, where they both have the same intensity of feelings for one another at the same time. Seo Hyun-jin plays screenwriter Lee Hyun-soo, and Yang Se-jong is chef Ohn Jung-sun, and in the teaser they introduce themselves to each other while pointing out that hers is a man’s name and his is a woman’s name.
As he passes her in the street on his bike, Yang Se-jong narrates, “My heart went to her, this woman I had seen for the first time.” He catches her repeatedly as she trips and nearly falls, and as they lock eyes, Seo Hyun-jin narrates, “I fell in love with this man I didn’t know.”
Enter the second leads: Kim Jae-wook (Voice), who plays a self-made businessman and Yang Se-jong’s restaurant partner, and Jo Boa (The Man Living in Our House), who is Seo Hyun-jin’s frenemy and rival in career and in love. Yang Se-jong continues in voiceover, “We met a era when it’s really difficult to love…” But as he and Seo Hyun-jin gaze at each other while waiting out the rain, he asks if she wants to date. Her narration closes out the teaser: “…And yet we declare our love. In this era, we love.” Actors I love and chemistry to boot? Where do I sign up?
Temperature of Love airs on Mondays and Tuesdays beginning September 18 on SBS.
