There’s a new drama, called City Couple’s Love Method, on the horizon. Ji Chang-wook (Backstreet Rookie) and Kim Ji-won (Arthdal Chronicles) are headlining this project, and Kim Min-seok (Because This Life Is Our First) has recently announced that his post-military small screen comeback will be with this drama.
City Couple’s Love Method shows the realistic romances of youths living in the city. Because of their hardships and the complexity of city living, they have to fight in order to succeed. It’s being planned as a multi-season show, and the first story has been titled “My Lovely Camera Thief.”
Ji Chang-wook plays an honest, warmhearted, and passionate architect. He’s the type of romantic who can love and be nostalgic about the friendly alleyways of city neighborhoods. His hobby is collecting more hobbies, because he approaches everything with an overwhelming passion.
Kim Ji-won’s character is a freelance marketer named Lee Eun-oh. She’s originally very ordinary, but she’s developed an alternate personality which is crazy and free-spirited. On an impulse, she came to a strange new place in order to begin a new life with a new mindset, and she ends up meeting and falling in love with Ji Chang-wook.
Last but not least, Kim Min-seok plays a fellow architect named Choi Kyung-joon, who is very practical and logical. He’s a cynical observer of the world, and unlike Ji Chang-wook, he’s not too hot or too cold in his passions and behavior. Although he’s not quick to anger, he does have a clear limit: If anyone hurts his long-time girlfriend Seo-rin, he takes decisive action.
Kim Min-seok said the following regarding his upcoming role: “I’m thankful and honored to greet viewers after my military service through this great project. I will try my best to show a relatable and consoling character through Choi Kyung-joon, so please look forward to it.”
City Couple’s Love Method, written by Jung Hyun-jung (Romance is a Bonus Book) and directed by Park Shin-woo (It’s Okay to Not Be Okay), will begin airing in the latter half of this year on streaming channel Kakao TV. The channel was launched by the messaging app Kakao and they’ve made major moves this year to establish a presence in the streaming entertainment market.
