Kim Jung-hyun stars in KBS’s last Drama Special this year
Yay, I’m so happy to hear that Kim Jung-hyun is coming back to the small screen, even if it’s only for one measly episode. He will be joining fellow School 2017 alum Jang Dong-yoon in starring in a KBS Drama Special, though not in the same one, sadly. The title for Kim Jung-hyun’s drama short is roughly translated as Buzzcut Love, and will be the last of KBS’s Drama Specials this year.
The human melodrama will center around a 26-year-old woman whose brain cancer has relapsed and the man who shaves her head. The show will depict her last escape in this life, which sounds so bittersweet, romantic, and tragic at the same time. There’s no information on who’s been cast as the female lead, but I just know Kim Jung-hyun is going to rip my heart out in this.
Buzzcut Love sounds like the kind of tearjerker I tend to avoid, but since it’s just the one episode, I might have to watch it (with a massive pile of tissue boxes at the ready). Kim Jung-hyun totally won me over with his performance as the way-too-swoony-for-his-own-good high schooler Hyun Tae-woon in the latest installment of the School franchise, and I’ll be the first in line for any of his future dramas or films, starting with Buzzcut Love. And if the reports are anything to go by, we’ll hopefully see him in other projects soon, since it sounds like he’s been inundated with offers.
The cast and crew of Buzzcut Love held their script read yesterday, and is scheduled to air on November 5. Take my tears, Kim Jung-hyun, I offer them up gladly!
