New stills for JTBC youth rom-com Number of Cases
The first stills from director Choi Sung-beom’s (My ID is Gangnam Beauty) new JTBC project of have been released. Like My ID is Gangnam Beauty, Number of Cases is another lovely youth drama addressing the theme of first love.
Ong Sung-woo (A Moment at Eighteen) and Shin Ye-eun (Welcome) play friends who have danced around a potential romantic spark for over ten years. Shin Ye-eun’s character, Kyung Woo-yeon, is a calligrapher who has had a long-time one-sided crush on Ong Sung-woo’s character. He is a capable, but narcissistic photographer named Yi Soo.
Woo-yeon is usually single-minded and stubborn in her pursuits, but for an unrevealed reason, she’s had to hide her feelings for her first love Yi Soo. He’s just realized that he has feelings for her, just as she’s decided to give up on him.
The last leg of the main love triangle, Kim Dong-joon (Chief of Staff 2) plays a sweet, wealthy man who appears before Woo-yeon as if by fate. He feels a connection to her because he also has been hurt in the past by his first love.
With his characteristic boy-next-door charm, Pyo Ji-hoon a.k.a. P.O. (Hotel Del Luna) plays the owner of a pub, who is good-natured, passionate, and loyal to his friends. Whereas Ahn Eun-jin (Hospital Playlist) has been tapped to play a realist and strong woman who wants to live an ordinary life, despite her poor family background. She appears to be easy-going but can send blunt arrows of truth flying with a soft, calm voice.
She’s been in a ten-year-long relationship with Choi Chan-ho’s (Hell is Other People) character. He is an ethics teacher who comes from a long line of educators. He’s the only boy of four children, so he’s been influenced and spoiled a lot by his sisters. His dream is to be Ahn Eun-jin’s character’s husband.
Finally, there’s Baek Soo-min (My ID is Gangnam Beauty) who plays a prosecutor that has difficulty with romantic relationships. She’s Woo-yeon’s best friend and a genius problem-solver. Although she’s read all the books on romance theory, she’s yet to actually have a boyfriend.
JTBC Friday-Saturday youth romance drama Number of Cases begins airing in September.
