Romance Drama Understanding of Love Finalizes Casting of Yoo Yeon Seok, Moon Ga Young, Jung Ga Ram, Geum Sae Rok

I feel like some actors or actresses are in one project after another while others infrequently produce new fare. K-actress Moon Ga Young is one of those back-to-back-to-back and beyond actresses and with her upcoming Link she’s now signed on for another drama the romance Understanding of Love. And before that she had True Beauty and that followed Find Me in Your Memory. I’m glad she’s in hot demand but it’s starting to blend for me when I hear of her dramas. This one, though, doesn’t sound interesting in synopsis but I like the entire cast. The male lead is Yoo Yeon Seok and the supporting leads will be Jung Ga Ram and Geum Sae Rok. The drama is set in an institutional bank and is a work place romance, so basically the bank version of Forecasting Love and Weather lol. I’m sure it’s more than that but this is all we have to go on for now.
