Character stills for JTBC’s Midnight Snack Couple with Jung Il-woo, Kang Ji-young, and Lee Hak-joo
New stills have been released for JTBC’s upcoming rom-com Midnight Snack Couple, featuring lead actors Jung Il-woo (Haechi), Kang Ji-young (Soshite, Ikiru), and Lee Hak-joo (A Couple’s World).
Jung Il-woo stars as a chef named Park Jin-sung who runs an odd little late-night restaurant where customers choose which drinks they want. Customers choose their drinks, but their appetizers are chosen by Jung, who customizes the dishes to match their drinks. His goal is to provide diners with warmth and comfort through delicious food and excellent customer service. Seeing customers enjoy their food also gives him a great measure of happiness. At the urging of one of his regular customers, Jung becomes the host of a new variety show called Midnight Snack Couple, which shoots him to popularity and fame.
Playing this regular customer is Kang Ji-young, whose character is a passionate PD named Kim Ah-jin. She usually has a smile on her face and always looks on the bright side. Her optimism is only matched by her love of food and drinking. After working hard as a crew member in production teams for many years, she finally gets her break as a PD when she convinces Jung Il-woo to become the host of her TV show.
Lee Hak-joo plays the role of successful fashion designer Kang Tae-wan. He hosts his own fashion TV program and comes to know Jung Il-woo and Kang Ji-young when he’s brought onto the Midnight Snack Couple variety show as a stylist for Jung’s character. As the three work together, they eventually become involved in atypical love triangle.
Written by Park Seung-hye (A Man Called God) and directed by PD Song Ji-won (The King 2 Hearts,What’s Up), Midnight Snack Couple premieres May 25 and will be airing Mondays and Tuesdays on JTBC.
