The first teasers are out for the upcoming jTBC drama Falling for Innocence (Falling for Soon Jung). Starring Jung Kyung Ho, Kim So Yeon, and Yoon Hyun Min, the drama takes over the time slot from sageuk Maids, which I confess to never getting in the mood to watching despite hearing good things about it. This one is a different story, I adore all three leads and more importantly the drama seems lighthearted wrapped in a heavier theme. It’s been too long since Jung Kyung Ho got to flex his comedic chops, he’ll always be one of the first and most memorable beta-males in K-dramas with his Smile You character.
His last dramas were all dark with Cruel City followed by Endless Love, it’s time this guy is allowed to be goofy again! Bonus points for Kim So Yeon also hitting up her own breezy side since her image toggles between hard-ass no nonsense woman and klutzy gal. The drama revolves around Jung Kyung Ho’s cold corporate shark who gets a personality transplant into a warmhearted man after heart surgery, after which he falls for his own beleaguered secretary played by Kim So Yeon. The PD directed Big Man, My Fair Lady, and Flowers for My Life but this will be the scriptwriter’s first penned drama. The first two teasers made me laugh out out which is always a good sign.
