Song Jae-rim cast in new KBS mystery-romance
Actor Song Jae-rim (Clean With Passion For Now) has been cast in a new KBS drama called, Let Me Hear Your Song. Possibly joining him is Gugudan’s Kim Se-jung (School 2017), who was also offered a lead role and is currently still in the “favorably considering” stage.
The drama is a mystery romance centered around a woman named Hong Yi-young who conceals many secrets. She has a peculiar condition in which she can only fall asleep when listening to people singing off-key. But she also has a deeply buried, forgotten memory that holds traces of a lost love and is the key to revealing the whole story behind a gruesome murder.
Song Jae-rim has been offered the part of Nam Joo-wan, an assistant professor of music and the conductor of a philharmonic orchestra. The character is described as exceptionally talented in the arts and possessing a quirky charm.
Writing for the mystery romance is writer Kim Min-joo, and directing will be done by PD Lee Jung-mi.
Song Jae-rim is another actor who’s been the second lead for far too many projects. I’m not sure if he’ll be getting the girl this time around, but I sure do hope he is! Please drama-gods, we beseech you!
KBS drama Let Me Hear Your Song is currently being planned to air later this summer in August.
