All eyes are now on the Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food as the drama landed a very titular pretty noona indeed. Predominately movie actress Son Ye Jin is making one of her infrequent sojourns back to drama land as the female lead for the upcoming jTBC drama with the quirky title of Pretty Noona Who Buys Me Food. The concept of a caring noona who comes over with food is very familiar in K-culture and the lucky younger man in this case will be played by Jung Hae In. The leads are nicely cast but the critics are even more excited that this is the first drama in three years by PD Ahn Pan Seok since his Heard it Through the Grapevine in 2015, and even earlier with the critically acclaimed Secret Love Affair and A Wife’s Credentials. No word yet on the screenwriter but the three dramas mentioned above PD Ahn all worked with writer Jung Sung Joo.
The drama sounds like an early Spring affair as casting continues rather briskly now that the leads are confirmed, with character actress Jang So Yeon offered a supporting role on Pretty Noona.
