The heat isn’t quite rising yet for soon to premiere new SBS romance drama Temperature of Love, arriving next Monday as Falsify wraps up its run this week. The vibe I get is less hot vat of oil bubbling and more oven on pre-heat, with all the right and light touches in setting up a visually appealing romance drama but the leads chemistry not jumping off the pictures or screens just yet. Starring Seo Hyun Jin, Yang Se Jong, Kim Jae Wook, and Jo Boa, the drama gives me Pasta vibes but that drama didn’t have much of a story and only worked on the incredible acting performance and chemistry of leads Gong Hyo Jin and Lee Seon Kyun. Here Yang Se Jong looks and feels like Seo Hyun Jin’s little brother and if that was the premise then so be it otherwise I’m hoping for a second male lead reversal or at least enough use of Kim Jae Wook to not waste a side dish that is by all accounts always delicious and perpetually overlooked.
