The casting carousel has brought together a pairing that I am most pleased with, and timing in this case definitely changed my opinion. K-ent is reporting that rising young actor Ahn Hyo Seob will join Kim So Hyun in the upcoming webtoon adapted drama Love Alarm, based on a future world where young folks find love using a phone app that rings when someone close by has a crush. I chuckle at the casting carousel because Ahn Hyo Seob was supposed to costar with Kim So Hyun’s same age actress colleague Kim Yoo Jung in the webtoon adapted drama Clean with Passion for Now, but he ended up dropping out due to scheduling conflicts when Kim Yoo Jung fell ill and the drama was delayed. He’s currently starring as the second male lead in the Mon-Tues SBS drama Thirty But Seventeen in a very prominent role and doing a fantastic job IMO. I’m thrilled he’s sticking with the young man role for Love Alarm, he’s so suited to play the earnest young boy learning about his growing up feelings.
