Won Jin-ah, Kim Ro-woon confirm new JTBC drama
Won Jin-ah, Kim Ro-woon
A new JTBC drama is being planned called Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick and casting has been confirmed for actors, Won Jin-ah (Melting Me Softly) and Kim Ro-woon (Extraordinary You).
The story is based on a webtoon by the same title, which won best contemporary romance in Yes24’s 2017 Romantic Collaboration competition.
Won Jin-ah plays the role of Yoon Song-ah, who works in marketing for a cosmetics company and her dream is to one day have her own makeup brand. In love, she has difficulty seeing anyone younger as a viable romantic interest.
But that changes, of course, with Kim Ro-woon. His character, Chae Hyun-seung, works with Won in the marketing division, and she is his sunbae within the company. He is described as being sincere and assertive.
Won Jin-ah is so baby-faced that I did a double take when I saw her character being described as having trouble seeing younger men in a romantic way, but it turns out she’s actually six years older than Kim Ro-woon. After the fiasco that was Melting Me, here’s hoping she sees drama success this time around.
Writing for the drama is Chae Yoon and directing will be helmed by PD Lee Dong-yoon (20th Century Boy and Girl, Fated to Love You).
JTBC’s upcoming Sunbae, Don’t Put on That Lipstick is currently being planned to air in the early half of 2021.
