JTBC’s upcoming drama Office Romance Cruelty has confirmed their main cast, with Yoon Park (Birthcare Center) and Yura (Radio Romance) now joining Song Kang (Navillera) and Park Min-young (I’ll Find You on a Beautiful Day) in the lead roles.
Taking a slight spin on the usual office setting, our characters work together at the National Weather Service where we’ll explore office dynamics as well as the turbulence that occurs when love sparks between co-workers.
Park Min-young takes on the role of Jin Ha-kyung, whose job focus at work is general forecasting. Her character is strictly by-the-book and she keeps clear boundaries between the different areas in her life. Whether it be work, self-care, or personal relationships, everything is neatly compartmentalized and she never mixes business with pleasure.
Song Kang’s character is Lee Shi-woo, who handles forecasting for special/severe weather. Having a free-spirited soul, he likes to think outside of the box. Due to his confident but humanistic nature, his colleagues find him easily approachable and he gets along well with others.
Yoon Park plays Han Ki-joon, who works in communications and is a spokesperson for the weather bureau. Although frank, he is an intelligent and compassionate speaker, and he was quickly recruited by the communications team after initially being hired for general forecasting.
Last but not least, Yura plays weather reporter Chae Yoo-jin. Her dream had been to chase storms and to make an impact by reporting about weather warnings live on the scene. Once she was hired, she was assigned to “weather and lifestyle,” and soon learned that even general weather can be unpredictable and that the job is not as middling as she thought it would be.
Directing for the drama is PD Cha Young-hoon (When the Camellia Blooms), and writing will be done collaboratively by Sun Young and Kang Eun-kyung (A Couple’s World, Ms. Temper and Nam Jung-ki)
JTBC drama Office Romance Cruelty is currently being planned to air early next year.
