Lee Da-hee and Choi Siwon battle for an Icy Cold Romance
ENA has released their first round of promos for Icy Cold Romance, including stills from the first script reading along with a new poster and video teaser.
The rom-com stars Lee Da-hee (L.U.C.A.: The Beginning) as variety show PD Gu Yeo-reum. She and Choi Siwon’s (Work Later, Drink Now) Park Jae-hoon have been close friends for 20 years, but their friendship – and feelings – are put to the test when Jae-hoon becomes a contestant on Yeo-reum’s reality TV dating show, The Kingdom of Love.
In supporting roles, Jo Soo-hyang (Love All Play) plays a fellow PD and frenemy named Kang Chae-ri. We also have Park Yeon-woo (Rookie Cops) as chef John Jang, the current star of The Kingdom of Love, and AB6IX’s Lee Dae-hwi (Mon Chouchou Global House) as Yeo-reum’s assistant PD.
Outside of work, Yeo-reum has the support of loving parents, Im Ha-ryong (Welcome to Wedding Hell) and Yang Hee-kyung (If You Wish Upon Me). And, rounding out the friend group, we have married couple Min Jin-woong (Secret Royal Inspector and Joy) and Noh Susanna (Men Are Men).
The new teaser begins with chef John asking to meet up and Yeo-reum scrambles to get ready. She wonders if this is the moment and if she should make the first move. But Jae-hoon calls her crazy for misreading the situation, betting that the guy won’t be interested even if she threw herself at him. Jae-hoon isn’t phased when Yeo-reum threatens to kill him and we jump to a seaside coast, as the video comes to a close. Rather than helping our heroine through the mudflats, Jae-hoon decides he’ll have some fun teasing her instead.
Directed by PD Choi Kyu-shik (Hush) with Kim Sol-ji (Pegasus Market) writing the scripts, ENA’s Icy Cold Romance premieres next month on October 5, following Good Job in the Wednesday-Thursday slot.
