Hwang Jung-eum to choose Yoon Hyun-min or Seo Ji-hoon in anti-marriage romance drama
Seo Ji-hoon, Hwang Jung-eum, Yoon Hyun-min
Hwang Jung-eum (Handsome Guy and Jung-eum), Yoon Hyun-min (My Holo Love), Seo Ji-hoon (Welcome) have been confirmed to star in an upcoming KBS drama called That Guy Is the Guy. Hwang plays a strong proponent of the single life, who has chosen to plan her life excluding marriage from her future. One day, she receives the love confessions of two men with completely different charms.
This drama seeks to explore the meaning of marriage and family in the context of the 21st century, as more and more young people choose to be single.
Hwang’s character is the confident and capable project manager of a successful webtoon company. Yoon Hyun-min plays the shrewd CEO of a pharmaceutical company. He’s chic and cool, but there’s also a loneliness within him.
Seo Ji-hoon plays a star webtoon artist who has a genius-level talent and a lovable personality. He grew up with Hwang’s character; though she thought of him as a little brother, he has harbored a secret crush on her for years.
Yoon Hyun-min and Seo Ji-hoon have played love rivals before in tvN’s Mama Fairy and the Woodcutter. I found their bromance to be cute, and so I look forward to their dynamic again in That Guy Is the Guy.
Monday-Tuesday KBS drama That Guy Is the Guy, directed by PD Choi Yoon-seok (Mystery Queen 2) and written by Lee Eun-young (Sweden Laundry), is scheduled to begin airing this summer.
