The casting carousel has brought together a pairing that I am most pleased with, and timing in this case definitely changed my opinion. K-ent is reporting that rising young actor Ahn Hyo Seob will join Kim So Hyun in the upcoming webtoon adapted drama Love Alarm, based on a future world where young folks find love using a phone app that rings when someone close by has a crush. I chuckle at the casting carousel because Ahn Hyo Seob was supposed to costar with Kim So Hyun’s same age actress colleague Kim Yoo Jung in the webtoon adapted drama Clean with Passion for Now, but he ended up dropping out due to scheduling conflicts when Kim Yoo Jung fell ill and the drama was delayed. He’s currently starring as the second male lead in the Mon-Tues SBS drama Thirty But Seventeen in a very prominent role and doing a fantastic job IMO. I’m thrilled he’s sticking with the young man role for Love Alarm, he’s so suited to play the earnest young boy learning about his growing up feelings.
He is very cute. They will look very nice together 🙂 Really look forward to this drama!
Same. This just became my most anticipated drama.
As far as I know none of the leads are confirmed. But it’s pretty much as good as KSH’s comeback drama and AHS probably would be stupid not to accept. But we’ll see.
Unfortunately he declined the main role..
Will wait for the replacement, hope they cast someone who have age appropriate with her,..
maybe Kim taehyung (C) Yook sungjae…:)
They look cute together already. This is much better role for him than he was offered before. I’m up for this pairing.
Kudos to getting the right age role for both of them. Cute as kittens in a tea cup as someone called it.
They already radiate cuteness! The vibes are already strong!
This might just be the most age appropriate pairing I’ve seen the whole year. Hallelujah!
THIS. I’m getting behind this drama just for casting the right age actors.
Was disappointed when he dropped out from Kim Yoo Jung’s drama.
Ok now he will be doing one with Kim So Hyun so I am happy again and first lead too hahaha.
This one actually fits him so much better. It fits them both actually.
I’m happy to see a role that suits KSH more than her two last dramas. It can be a cute drama with both of them 🙂
I thought her character in Master of Mask sounded good on paper but the way the writer butchered that role was just terrible. I’m a lot more hopeful about this character because it seems to be the core of the story this time which is something she deserves. If anyone can hard carry a drama its kim sohyun.
I like how the crew went for a main cast that is close in age, which fits the youthful ambience of the plot.
Don’t know which male lead Ahn Hyoseop was approached for, but I reckon he’s Hwang Sunoh, the heroine’s first love due to his model physique. I see Kim Minjae or newcomer Jung Garam (who was last in drama Mistress) in the role of Lee Hyeyoung, the other male lead.
Always LOVE her but I’m also liking him and other main casts in Still 17 despite not liking the drama overall. I’m all in for these two.
I kinda have a second lead syndrome in Thirty But Seventeen, so I’m super please about this potential casting.
Why isn’t this airing already? I already can’t wait to watch it. A potential casting I can finally get excited about.
Too cute for words!
