Lee Jin-wook and Lee Yeon-hee are newly engaged in Kakao TV’s new rom-com
Actress Lee Yeon-hee (SF8) is making a drama comeback playing opposite Lee Jin-wook (Bulgasal: Immortal Souls) in Kakao TV’s upcoming rom-com Marriage Papers (roughly translated).
The drama is about a couple in their 30’s, who recently got engaged after two years of dating. Like a fairy tale, they had envisioned marriage as the happy resolution to all of their troubles, but they quickly come face-to-face with the real world once the actual wedding preparations begin. From the meeting of the parents to finding a place to live, the story follows the couple’s growth as they tackle each new hurdle.
Lee Jin-wook takes on the role of Seo Joon-hyung, the seemingly perfect boyfriend who’s honest about his feelings and likes to think positively. Having grown up with a loving family in a comfortable home, he didn’t have many struggles in life and has an innocent character that can come across as naive or immature. But he always tries to be considerate and understanding of others, and has a playful sense of humor.
Lee Yeon-hee plays girlfriend Kim Na-eun, who has all the perfect traits on paper as well. Being pragmatic, she keeps clear boundaries and is competent in her work and responsibilities. Although she has her introspective moments and can sometimes get lost in her own thoughts, she ultimately has a big heart for people and has a happy personality.
On the production side, directing will be done collaboratively by PD Song Je-young (The Great Shaman Ga Doo-shim) and PD Seo Joo-wan (Damn Good Company) with scripts penned by Choi Yi-rang (My Country Calls, Tamra the Island). Filming for Kakao TV’s Marriage Papers has already begun and the drama will be releasing sometime this year.
