Yoo Yeon-seok and Moon Ga-young are Understanding of Love

JTBC’s upcoming romance Understanding of Love has come out with its first poster, featuring our main quartet played by: Yoo Yeon-seok (Narco-Saints), Moon Ga-young (Link: Eat, Love, Kill), Geum Sae-rok (Youth of May), and Jung Ga-ram (Love Alarm 2).

Adapted from a novel by the same name (written by Lee Hyuk-jin), the Korean title uses a homonym and its two meanings are reflected in the story: how people with their own vested interests can meet and learn to understand love in different ways. A similar sentiment is echoed in the poster’s tagline.

Adding to the complications, of course, is that our main characters all work at the same bank branch when romance starts to blossom. The poster also displays their work ID tags in descending heights with color-coded lanyards, indicating their differing ranks and departments.

Each coming from their own perspective on love, Ha Sang-soo (Yoo Yeon-seok), to start, is someone who equates happiness with stability and he’s taken completely out of his comfort zone when he takes a risk on love. Ahn Soo-young (Moon Ga-young), on the other hand, sees love through a fragile lens and is skeptical – and perhaps even fearful – about the longevity of relationships.

In contrast, the glass is always half full for Park Mi-kyung (Geum Sae-rok), who wears her heart on her sleeve while striving to be a more assertive and independent adult. Rounding out the group, the hard-working but idealistic Jung Jong-hyun (Jung Ga-ram) has too much on his plate – working while studying and also pursuing love.

Directed by PD Jo Young-min with Lee Seo-hyun and Lee Hyun-jung co-writing, JTBC’s Understanding of Love is slated to premiere next month on December 21 in the Wednesday-Thursday slot.

You mean no TOD or squirrelly serial killer thrown in the middle to make things "interesting"? I second that! Let's have nice all the way through!

I hope Moon Gayoung doesn’t do a cutesy voice and speaks like an adult unlike some of her other characters. I cannot stand women deliberately speaking in infantile tones but acknowledge that some women do have such voices and can’t help that.

Bank robbery gone horribly wrong, hostage situation + medical emergency, someone's father and/or sister is one of the bank customers during the hold-up, and there's a childhood connection between the FL, the leader of the bank robbers, and the security guard.

So, you know, just the usual rom-com stuff.

@elinor: The kD industry should be on the national pay roll for trying to ventilate all sorts of traumas, albeit not always constructively or logically. Why is there always a childhood connection? This is nostalgia as a panacea. Aigoo.

I hope this is good, not a super fan of that age gap, but YYS and MGY are always a treat to watch.

I must be one of the few people who liked Jung Ga Ram in Love Alarm, so I'll give this a try for him, but I hope it is a good romance drama overall.
