KBS is restarting its Mon-Tues drama line up after taking a break post The Tale of Nokdu. Starting in early April 2020 a short 4-episode mini drama will premiere called Friend Contract starring leads who can still believably pass as high school students. Lee Sin Young, Kim So Hye, Shin Sung Ho, and maybe Min Do Hee will play high school students in a sweet tale of friendship, school, and young romance. It’s not terrible complicated but sounds like a nice segway for the network back to prime time dramas for that time slot. I hope filming isn’t affected by the coronavirus outbreak that is rather severe in South Korea compared to other countries second to Mainland China, and if it is then this drama and many others may have airings pushed back. So far it’s still business as usual.
Shin Sung Ho should try a role different, because I think I only watched him as a highschool student. He doesn’t look younger than his age.
I watched Kim So Hye in the drama about a chicken restaurant, and it wasn’t great.
I’m happy to watch Lee Sin Young in a new drama, I hope he will be more talkative in this role :p
agree. SSH is 24 and looks even older than 24 imo. he looks more like a T.A. to me. K-dramas should get age-matched actors to play school age characters. Too cringey to see SSH wearing a high school uniform again. yikes.
