KBS is brewing up a love and libations drama that’s right up my alley, and with a cute name for a drink I adore. Mojito is on the menu for the network and has stirred up the combination of Sung Joon and Lim Ji Yeon as the leads. The drama is about a chaebol heir who gets anxious at night and decides to open a daytime bar, with love and healing to ensue. The OTP meet at the bar and sparks fly, which sounds like your typical weekend night out as a single but in K-drama land it’s true love and with plenty of quirky swooning. Both leads are still in discussion stages but totally seem suited for this type of roles, not to mention are quite a visual match. I’m not even going to pretend the biggest elephant in the room is that both were in the drama High Society except they didn’t have a romantic love line.
Lim Ji Yeon changed my opinion of her with High Society, and it was in part due to the blazing chemistry with Park Hyung Sik. Sung Joon has chemistry with almost anyone except oddly didn’t with his HS costar UEE, and his last drama Perfect Wife ended up a perfect miss in ratings. Here’s hoping if these two sign on this drama is good and affords them the right roles to shine.
