Restarting the badminton dream with Park Joo-hyun, Chae Jong-hyeop in Love All Play

In a final round of promos before its premiere this week, we get another peek at the sports-romance story to come for KBS’s Love All Play. Our main athletes, Park Joo-hyun (Mouse) and Chae Jong-hyeop (The Witch’s Diner) are both talented at badminton. But while Park sees sports as her life and blood, Chae treats it like just a job he’s been assigned to do.

Strangely enough, it is the passionate Park Joo-hyun who unexpectedly retired from badminton three years ago without explanation. And now, just as suddenly, she has returned. Due to her time away, Park has a big hill to climb if she wants to catch up to her peers and deal with the rumors surrounding her mysterious disappearance. But Chae Jong-hyeop is moved by Park’s dedication and it pushes him to see that maybe badminton always was more to him than just a job.

One person who does know what happened three years ago is fellow badminton player Kim Mu-joon (Nevertheless). He isn’t happy about Park Joo-hyun’s return and the two have a tense encounter in the new stills. Thankfully, Park gets a warm welcome from Kim Hyun-joo (Hellbound), who makes a special guest appearance in the drama as the badminton team’s CEO.

Directed by PD Jo Woong with scripts penned by Heo Sung-hye, KBS drama Love All Play premieres this Wednesday on April 20.

Badminton is one of those sports, like fencing, that is a metaphor for both love, and life. If you want to understand your destiny, follow the path of the shuttlecock.

For some reason, he is the actor I see that would fit for the male lead of Someday or One Day's remake.

Chae Jong Hyeop has the happiest smile, only Yoon Shi Yoon rivals him. I am looking forward to this.

I am definitely checking this out for Chae Jong Hyeop. He just looks so precious every time he's on screen.

I have also not yet been disappointed by any sports kdrama I watched, so my expectations are high 😅

The original title was a mouthful, but I don’t know if I like the new one either. That said, badminton! It seems my love for the sport has now extended to loving dramas about the sport as well. Plus, I really like the pairing of Chae Jong-hyeop and Park Joo-hyun (both rising stars, you love to see it). I want this to be great.

I’m well aware as a long-time badminton player myself. I just don’t particularly like it as a title for this show lol.

There’s nothing to apologize for! If I wasn’t a badminton player, this could’ve been an interesting fact to learn about.

I guess in terms of including wordplay in the title that international audiences would get, “Love, All Play” isn’t bad. I’m now sure there was something in the original Korean title that went missing in translation.

P.S. I love your username. I miss the 99z and it just made me nostalgic all over again.
