Sooyoung to join Jang Geun-seok in Kakao romance drama
Sooyoung, Jang Geun-seok
Sooyoung (Run On) and Jang Geun-seok (Switch) will be co-starring in a new web drama called Accidental Country Diary. The project will be Jang Geun-seok’s first major acting project in Korea since completing his military service. The drama tells the story of a Seoulite veterinarian who suddenly gets thrown into the microcosm of a tiny country village where he meets a local police officer.
Jang Geun-seok plays city-chic veterinarian Han Ji-yul, and Sooyoung plays policewoman Ahn Ja-young, who shows up whenever someone is in distress. She is a fearless, physically strong workhorse-type woman who has done anything and everything for work. As the story unfolds, Jang Geun-seok’s character realizes that she was his secret friend from childhood, and as adults, they begin to feel the stirrings of romance.
Directed by PD Jo Young-min (Do You Like Brahms?) and written by Baek Eun-kyung, Accidental Country Diary will be produced by Kakao Entertainment and will air via the Kakao web platform.
