Script reading stills from JTBC’s Understanding of Love
JTBC’s upcoming drama Understanding of Love has just released stills from its script reading, offering us our first glimpse of our leads. The lives of our four main characters, each with vested interests of their own, intersect fatefully at… a bank. Not the most likely place for swoonworthy moments, but the drama promises a realistic and grounded look into the various perspectives of love.
Yoo Yeon-seok (Narco-Saints) headlines as Ha Sang-soo, the chief of KCU Bank’s Yeongpo branch. With three years of experience under his belt, he’s steady as can be, accomplishing his tasks with consistency and competence. That is, until change comes knocking on his door in the form of an unexpected variable called love.
Alongside him is Moon Ga-young (Link: Eat, Love, Kill) in the role of Ahn Soo-young, a senior bank teller with four years of experience. Her gentle disposition and pleasant smiles earn her much popularity, but she doesn’t have high hopes for love, comparing romance to a sandcastle that could crumble at any moment.
In contrast, Geum Sae-rok (Youth of May) stars as the optimistic deputy manager Park Mi-kyung, who’s bright and candid about her feelings. Though she hails from a rich family, she wishes to assert herself outside of her family background, pouring her all into every task she takes on and accomplishing the title of the youngest deputy manager at KCU Bank.
Fresh out of the military, Jung Ga-ram (Love Alarm 2) returns as Jung Jong-hyun, a diligent but down-on-his-luck idealist who’s studying for the police civil service test. Currently, he’s working as a security personnel at KCU Bank, juggling love, debt, and dreams.
Based on the novel of the same name by Lee Hyuk-jin, Understanding of Love is directed by Jo Young-min (Do You Like Brahms?) and written by Lee Seo-hyun and Lee Hyun-jung. Though a premiere date has not been set, it aims to air late this year.
