Just as I wrote about Lee Jong Seok likely to enlist in 2019 and may be going on military break with While You Were Sleeping as his last major K-drama (he has a short drama coming with Shin Hye Sun), he goes and gets himself positioned for another drama to come. This may be cutting it close considering that recently Yoo Doo Joon had to leave drama filming for Let’s Eat 3 before it was done but hopefully Lee Jong Seok’s side can do match and figure they can squeeze one more in.
And clearly he’s going to do this drama tentatively titled Romance Supplement because the leading lady in talks is none other than his stated actress ideal Lee Na Young. I’m sure men find her beautiful and her acting has received compliments in the past but goodness Lee Na Young has been so underwhelming in every drama I’ve watched with her from Ruler of Your Own World to Ireland to Fugitive: Plan B, she’s like a limp noodle with limited to no charisma whatsoever onscreen to keep my interest. The drama is from the PD of Life on Mars with the screenwriter of I Need Romance and will air on tvN in early 2019.
The drama is set in a publishing house and involves the leads who grew up together and find love as adults. If Lee Na Young accepts this will be her first drama in 9 years since Fugitive, and honestly she’s not the one-half of her married couple duo with Won Bin that I, or probably most people, want to see in a comeback acting role.
