First Look at Na In Woo and Seohyun in Upcoming KBS Wed-Thurs Rom-com Drama The Jinx’s Lover

I was totally not expecting this drama to arrive so soon but it’s a happy surprise that KBS will premiere The Jinx’s Lover next month in June in the Wed-Thurs time slot following Love All Play (The Speed Going to You 493km). Starring Na In Woo and Seohyun, the drama is adapted from a webtoon and tells the story of a fishmonger male lead with incredibly outrageous bad luck and a woman with special ability to see a person’s future if she touches that person. Their paths cross and hijinks ensue, and hopefully a jinx is lifted thereafter and much love and comedy had by all. The drama is from the PD of River Where the Moon Rises, Bride of the Century, and Tamra the Island so I’m expecting lots of gorgeous visuals to tantalize the senses and a deft hand with building the romance chemistry and storytelling pace.
