Leave it to K-drama casting agents to still manage to surprise me. There’s a one-two news break with 2020 K-drama Record of Youth – originally confirmed male lead Jang Ki Young has declined due to scheduling conflicts and the production is courting Park Bo Gum and he’s seriously considering it. That makes sense as Park So Dam as been this year It Actress thanks to the record and award breaking movie Parasite which is like winning a casting lottery for any young actress. The two Parks conceivably would be so adorable together in a romance drama and Record of Youth is billed as a dream achieving life drama with of course romantic underpinnings. I’m fine either way if Park Bo Gum accepts or declines but if he does sign on this drama is sure to get way more buzz.
