First look at Kim So-hyun, Song Kang, Jung Ga-ram in youth romance Love Alarm
The first stills have been released for Netflix drama Love Alarm starring Kim So-hyun (Radio Romance), Song Kang (When the Devil Calls Your Name), and Jung Ga-ram (Mistress).
The drama is an adaptation of a popular webtoon with the same name, about high school romance complicated by an app that can read people’s feelings. Adding a level of transparency to romantic interactions, the app sounds notifications whenever someone who likes you is within 10 meters of distance.
The newly released stills feature the main cast in their school uniforms and give us a glimpse of the story to come.
Kim So-hyun plays the central character of Jo-jo, who is described as having a bright and spirited personality despite a somewhat lonely and difficult life. She finally gets her first break from life when, one day, she runs into Sun-oh (played by Song Kang) by chance and they both receive “like” notifications on their apps.
As a popular student, the son of a famous actor, and a model himself, Sun-oh often receives the “like” alarms go off on his phone. But, encountering Jo-jo was the first time that he caused a “like” to pop-up on the other person’s end. And he starts to pursue a relationship with Jo-jo earnestly.
However, of course, someone else has secretly been crushing on Jo-jo and he is Hye-young (played by Jung Ga-ram) – Sun-oh’s best friend of 12 years. Out of loyalty for Sun-oh, Hye-young tries to take a step back and keeps his feelings concealed. But, watching Jo-jo and Sun-oh grow closer is easier said than done.
Directing for the drama is PD Lee Na-jung (Fight My Way), and working together on the scripts are writers Lee Ah-yeon and Seo Bo-ra. Netflix drama Love Alarm is currently set to premiere next month, on August 22.
