SBS is lining up an office based rom-com for early 2022 and the casting is filling out this week. Ahn Hyo Seob has been confirmed as the male lead of Office Blind Date playing a workaholic chaebol heir who has no interest in romance and finds a partner to get his parents off his back. In talks for the female is now Kim Se Jung, with earlier talk of Jo Boa, an ordinary office lady who goes on a blind date in place as her friend and meets the CEO of her company under that fake identity pretense. He asks her to marry him out of practicality. Rising actress Seol In Ah of Record of Youth and Queen Cheorin will play the second female lead here. It looks like SBS really likes Ahn Hyo Seob since he’s been filming its upcoming sageuk drama Hong Chun Gi (Red Sky) so we’ll see him back on the small screen later this summer opposite Kim Yoo Jung, and I want to watch that first to see if he’s improved because his last drama that I watched Abyss did him no favors.
