It’s hard to follow up a mega mega hit which is why it’s understandable that both leads of 2016 romance sageuk Moonlight Drawn by Clouds haven’t picked their followup drama since then. That’s changing now as female lead Kim Yoo Jung has finally said yes to the K-drama adaptation of webtoon Clean With a Passion for Now. K-ent is calling this her first romance role of her 20’s (she’s 20 years old in Korean age with the start of this new year) and has her playing her first adult role in a modern drama.
She played an adult in Moonlight and her role prior in Angry Mom was a modern drama but she played the high school student she was in real life. Clean With Passion tells the romance between an easygoing not afraid to get dirty and rather messy already female lead who goes to work at a cleaning company for her germaphobe CEO and the two opposite personalities fall in love. Reportedly actor Ahn Hyo Seob is in talks to be her male lead but if he’s not confirmed yet I do hope she gets a more established male lead, Park Bo Gum was perfect for her in Moonlight and someone of his charisma here would be ideal.
