Ong Sung-woo, Shin Ye-eun, Kim Dong-joon
The main cast lineup has been decided for upcoming JTBC rom-com, Number of Cases. Wanna One’s Ong Seung-woo (A Moment at Eighteen) and ZE:A’s Kim Dong-joon (Chief of Staff 2) will be playing the male leads. Shin Ye-eun, who is currently starring in the fantasy cat drama Welcome, rounds out the trio as the female lead. Number of Cases is a sweet take on the fluttering feelings of first love, one-sided crushes, and imperfect timing.
Shin Ye-eun’s character, Kyung Woo-yeon, is inexperienced in love. She’s the type of person who once her mind is set, sticks to it no matter what. For instance, she bravely decides to quit her steady job and become a calligrapher with an all-in, singleminded determination. Similarly, she began to have crush on her friend Yi Soo, played by Ong Sung-woo, ten years ago but for some reason she had to hide her feelings. Due to her all-in nature, she was unable to forget her first love, and so she’s only been in short relationships since. When he appears before her again, things become complicated as she is also courted by a man who seems to have a fateful connection with her.
Yi Soo is a capable, handsome photographer who is selfish in love. Self-centered and arrogant, he’s the embodiment of self-love. Kyung Woo-yeon enters his peaceful existence and begins to move his heart.
Kim Dong-joon plays Ohn Joon-soo who appears to Kyung Woo-yeon as if by fate. The CEO of a publishing company, Ohn Joon-soo is wealthy with a prestigious academic background, good looks and a great personality to match. He’s the archetype of the man who has it all. However, he has lasting scars from a first love that didn’t work out, and he’s shut his heart to anyone who comes near. In Kyung Woo-yeon, he finds a kindred spirit in failed first loves, and his heart begins to open again.
Friday-Saturday JTBC youth drama Number of Cases, directed by Choi Sung-beom (My ID is Gangnam Beauty) and written by Jo Seung-hee, will air in the latter half of 2020.
