tvN has announced the main line-up for their new romance drama, Half of a Half. Jung Hae-in (One Spring Night), Chae Soo-bin (Fox Bride Star), Lee Hana (Voice 3), and Kim Sung-gyu (Kingdom) have all accepted lead roles in the upcoming drama. The plot centers around love in its various iterations. When love is unrequited, how do you live alone with that love? For one of the characters in the drama, a small piece of someone’s heart, a “half of a half” is enough to sustain love.
Jung Hae-in will be playing the male lead; his character Ha Won is an artificial intelligence engineer and an industry pioneer. He’s the founder and brains behind a successful online company. In terms of personality, he’s a good-natured and utterly rational, but he can also be unyielding at times.
Chae Soo-bin plays Han Seo-woo, a recording engineer who specializes in classical music. She’s an eternal optimist who looks on the bright side of things, despite not having steady employment, a home, a family, or really anything that would point to a stable life. Aside from her optimism, she’s just a fairly ordinary young woman. She does have one quirk though. Whenever she’s anxious, she calms herself down by solving math problems.
Kim Sung-gyu is set to play a pianist named Kang In-wook. He’s acclaimed in musical circles for his artistry and skill, but in the wider world he’s pretty much a no-name musician. Though sociable and sweet, he suffers from an anxiety that dominates his every waking moment. He worries over the smallest things and has a constant fear that he’ll lose everything.
Lee Hana will play horticulturalist Moon Soon-ho. She and Jung Hae-in’s character go way back and she’s taken care of him throughout the years, as if he were one of her gardens. She’s a bit awkward and tends to worry about her weight in way that’s a bit obsessive.
PD Lee Sang-yub (Familiar Wife, Shopping King Louis) will direct, with Lee Sook-yeon (On the Way to the Airport) penning the script. Writer Lee and Jung Hae-in have worked together before, as she was the head writer for his most recent film, Tune in for Love.
Half of a Half is set to air in March 2020 on tvN.
