Ahn Hyo Seob and Jo Boa in Talks for Webtoon Adapted Romance K-drama Office Blind Date

I don’t read Korean webtoons for the most part, though a few times a K-drama adaptation has led me to marathon the source material such as with Sweet Home. But it does feel like there are a bajillion webtoons since the entry barrier is so low so the quality must vary wildly. With so many to choose from, there appears an unending amount of romance dramas set in offices such as with the upcoming drama adaptation of Office Blind Date. It’s basically two pretty people work in the same office and due to external shenanigans get a chance to fall in love as fated to be. I just finished Sunbae, Please Don’t Put on that Lipstick (She Would Never Know) and honestly stories like that need magnetic lead(s) to retain interest because there isn’t enough actual stuff happening to justify a 16-episode run time. Office Blind Date has offers out to Ahn Hyo Seob and Jo Boa for the leads, and the two in the past happened to attend the same brand event and was photographed together so visually they are total eye candy with chemistry still an unknown. If they accept the drama is slated for end of 2021.
