The cuteness continues to build for upcoming MBC Wed-Thurs drama Shopping King Louie, a drama that didn’t land as leading man Yook Sung Jae but looks like it got an equally perfect casting with Seo In Guk. Both actors have their boyish charm that can get switched on for arrogance as needed, and in this role as the titular shopping king rich boy Louie, Seo In Guk will be playing both sides of the personalities from before and after he loses his memory and goes from riches to rags.
The drama posters play up the confectionary aspect of this drama, like bon bon treats with the predominately pink color scheme with splashes of lavender and blues. If it really is an airy romantic treat then I’m all in even if the story feels like a twist on Brilliant Legacy/Shining Inheritance mashed with Nam Ji Hyun‘s last drama performance of the big hearted country girl in What’s With This Family. So far downtrodden Seo In Guk is beyond adorable and Nam Ji Hyun continues to own the provincial fish out of water in the big city trope.
