JTBC melo Just Between Lovers adds Kang Hanna, Lee Ki-woo and more
Kang Hanna, Lee Ki-woo
JTBC has been busy adding more names to the roster for upcoming melo Just Between Lovers and the supporting cast is shaping up quite nicely. In addition to leads Junho (Chief Kim) and rookie Won Jin-ah, Kang Hanna (Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo) and Lee Ki-woo (Woman of Dignity) will both portray characters connected to the heroine.
Just Between Lovers, a show about “great” people who calmly endure the harsh winds that blow in their lives, will feature Junho as a former soccer player hopeful who lost his father and his dreams through an accident. He will meet and fall in love with Won Jin-ah’s character, who also lost a loved one through an accident, and has shouldered the heavy burden of living her sister’s life for her because of her survivor’s guilt. Through their encounters, these two people will help each other heal their wounds and learn that redemption comes from love.
Kang Hanna’s character will work at the same architecture firm as Won Jin-ah’s, and is described as charismatic and a source of admiration for the women around her. Oh, I hope she uses her powers for good not evil, and becomes good friends with the heroine! I always prefer girlfriends over rivals, and it sounds like Won Jin-ah’s character will need all the emotional support she can get. Lee Ki-woo will play an architect, and though his character description hasn’t been released, I can see him being a very convincingly swoony second lead.
Yoon Se-ah, Tae In-ho, Park Hee-bon, Na Mun-hee
Also added to the supporting cast are Yoon Se-ah (Forest of Secrets), Tae In-ho (Man to Man), Park Hee-bon (The Lonely Shining Goblin), and the ever-wonderful Na Mun-hee (Dear My Friends). While reports don’t specify what roles Park Hee-bon or Na Mun-hee will play, we do know that Yoon Se-ah will portray a club madame whose life was ruined due to a “mistaken love.” She’ll be an important, family-like figure to Junho’s character, and one of the only people he can rely on. On the other hand, Tae In-ho will be the eldest son of a well-known family, who has lived his whole life striving to meet his family’s expectations. Out of all the characters we know about in the show, his seems to have the lightest baggage, but Just Between Lovers could always prove me wrong. Not that I’m hoping for more depressing backstories or anything.
The cast of Just Between Lovers held their first script reading last week and is planning to premiere sometime later this year, though there hasn’t been any tentative dates announced. In the meantime, everyone prepare your tissues! I feel like we’re going to need them for this one.
