Seo Hyun Jin, Yang Se Jong, and Kim Jae Wook Confirmed for Romance Drama Temperature of Love

I’m so torn with this drama casting, and it’s torn because it’s so potentially good but only one guy can get the girl. The three leads are confirmed for upcoming Temperature of Love, with now confirmed leading lady Seo Hyun Jin going three-for-three in terms of picking a hit drama after her last two buzzy outings with Another Oh Hae Young followed by Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim. Joining her are rookie turned leading man actor Yang Se Jong, who made his acting debut just last year in Seo Hyun Jin’s drama Romantic Doctor, and then followed it up by scene stealing as younger Song Seung Heon in Saimdang: Light’s Diary (not hard to do) and then a good-bad set of clones in sci-fi drama Duel.

Pretty impressive output in a short year and clearly he’s getting tapped to be the male lead due to his potential and solid performances so far. Sadly that relegated my perpetual underrated but so awesome Kim Jae Wook to play the second male romantic lead, which he does so so sooooooo well in ways that break my heart each time. from Bad Guy to Mary Stayed Out All Night to Who Are You. He even managed in a few short episodes before getting unceremoniously written off in Inspiring Generation. So hard to pick, can we clone Seo Hyun Jin for both guys in this drama? Continue reading
