I’m still sad that rising young actor Ahn Hyo Seob, who is currently nailing it in SBS drama Thirty But Seventeen, turned down the male lead role in upcoming teen romance Love Alarm. The pairing of him with Love Alarm confirmed leading lady Kim So Hyun seemed like a match made in drama casting heaven and now the male leads confirmed for Love Alarm are both unknowns to me so I can’t get excited (yet) that they are a good fit. Love Alarm’s leading men will be Jung Ga Ram and Song Kang and I legit never heard of them before but that’s on me. Male lead Jung Ga Ram has made one-off appearances in drama Heirs, Heard it Through the Grapevine, and High Kick 3 as well as winning the Blue Dragon New Actor award for the movie 4th Place and second male lead Song Kang had small rolls in The Liar and His Lover and Man Who Sets the Table. Love Alarm is adapted from webtoon and will be directed by the PD of Fight My Way airing in early 2019.
