Main leads are set for the next big jTBC drama to take over the Fri-Sat time slot from female empowerment and growth series Age of Youth. Entertainment industry drama Fantastic has inked veteran leading lady Kim Hyun Joo and leading man Joo Sang Wook in their first coupling and first jTBC drama. I hope it’s funny rather than too serious because Joo Sang Wook is still my favorite being ridiculously engaging like in Sly and Single Again. Here he plays a top star who is supremely narcissistic but sadly a terrible actor. He crosses paths with top screenwriter played by Kim Hyun Joo who gets an incurable disease diagnosis but is too optimistic to be brought down by it and continues to power her way through life. The drama is described as a warm romance with laughs, which is always worrying when it comes coupled with the reveal that one of the leads has an incurable disease.
Fantastic will be directed by the PD of Last and Empire of Gold and written by the screenwriter of Sad Love Story.
