Jung In-sun finds her DNA Lover in Choi Siwon

What if love is written not in the stars, but in our genes? TV Chosun’s romantic comedy DNA Lover has released its first teaser, showcasing the rose-tinted research of our romantic scientist and the ideal man she dreams of.

Jung In-sun (Grand Shining Hotel) stars as the gene researcher Han So-jin, who opens our teaser with a dreamy proclamation: her perfect match, who will stay by her side forever, is engraved into her genes. So-jin’s so dedicated to her vision that she’s turned her entire bedroom window into a research board, complete with bright colors and whimsical doodles reminiscent of a middle school art project.

To find her so-called “DNA lover,” So-jin develops an app to facilitate connections between genetically-destined lovers. In the process, she crosses paths with the OB-GYN Shim Yeon-woo, played by Choi Siwon (Death’s Game). Despite his exceptional social skills that earn him no shortage of admirers, Yeon-woo has a firm boundary he refuses to let anyone cross. The moment his beau acts obsessively possessive, or attempts to bend him to their will, he dumps her without a moment’s hesitation.

That might spell bad news for the geeky So-jin and her image of the perfect sweetheart, but our heroine is driven by an earnest determination. “Welcome to Han So-jin’s experiment world!” she squeals in delight, even as a devastated Yeon-woo wails over the jigsaw puzzle she just ruined. Whoops. Still, in spite of their differences, the serene Yeon-woo can’t help but feel drawn to So-jin’s bubbly energy. Perhaps the secret to romantic destiny really does lie in one’s DNA after all.

Apart from our scientifically-proven match, we also have second leads to twist up the love lines. Lee Tae-hwan (Thirty-Nine) plays the flower boy firefighter Seo Kang-hoon, who holds So-jin as his number one priority. The moment she calls, he’s dropping everything to answer instantly. On the contrary, Yeon-woo’s ex-lover Jang Mi-eun — played by Jung Yoo-jin (Celebrity) — approaches romance with an open mind and a free spirit, which she imbues into her polyamory advice column. “A woman who expects everything from only one man is bound to get hurt,” Mi-eun declares. Will her belief hold true, or will the devoted So-jin prove her wrong?

Directed by PD Sung Chi-wook (Tomorrow) with scripts by Jung Su-mi (Born Again), DNA Lover will premiere on August 17.

I love Jung In-sun, so I'm really excited for her to have another lead role! I've realized I've never been able to finish a Choi Siwon drama, so hopefully this will be the one!!

Oh, this looks good. Please don’t let it be like Behind your touch that sounded good but I had to walk away from after the first trailer left me cold. This one at least has made it through the first trailer test☺️

The trailer had a totally different vibe than I was expecting, making it potentially more appealing. I'll probably give it a try!

Yes totally. Just don't know what the drama is called now.
The Mother's Friend's Son was the best! 👌😀

Just watch them keep it as “Mother’s Friend’s Son” for the Korean title and then come up with something completely off base and linguistically mind twisting for the English title 🫠

Even Golden Boy was better than Next Door Neighbor.

Yes, because at least “Golden Boy” speaks about the guy (mom’s friend’s son), whereas, what in the world is “next door neighbor”? The latter could be about anyone

@bebeswtz The idiom is so meaningful that only a literal translation works best. Anything else just fails to capture the spirit.

Why was my comment deleted? It was factual based on his homophobic comments?

It was! That seems odd. It did not seem in violation of any DB policy.

I had not heard of those comments when I read your post. But I did Google as I should have, and as usual I wish I hadn’t. CSW’s homophobia is awful.

Thank you Indy. I too don’t understand why it was deleted. I wasn’t merely stating the truth but maybe it rubbed somebody the wrong way. Poor bigoted rich actors need protection too.
And, it really is awful. He let his bigoted flag fly and justified it on the basis of his faith.
