It’s a case of back in the saddle for him and ready for her promotion for her. MBC has cast Yook Sung Jae and Jung Chae Yeon as the leads for its mid year 2022 airing K-drama Golden Spoon. It’s a fantasy romance life journey themed drama about a young man who uses a mysterious golden spoon to change his life and embark on an adventure. Yook Sung Jae was one of the handful of young drama leading men recently back from military service so I’m glad he’s lined up his first post military project. Jung Chae Yeon is getting her first prime time drama lead role and seems to be focused solely on acting now after her start as an idol member in DIA and later I.O.I. Most recently she received positive reviews as the second female lead in The King’s Affection so this is a natural step up for her. Golden Spoon is from the writer of Winter Sonata, Sweet 18, and Prime Minister and I and produced by the company behind The Fiery Priest and Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim 2.
