Hoo boy, now this is a drama casting I wish the male lead didn’t accept, even if it turns out to be good all the early signs are that it won’t be my cup of tea. Im Soo Jung and Lee Do Hyun are confirmed and will head into filming for romance drama Melancholia, depicting the love story of an older woman and younger man, and she happens to also be his former teacher. She’s a math teacher at a private high school and he’s a math genius who got into MIT at 12. She taught him when he’s 18 years old and four years later they reunite when he’s now 22. This sounds like the Doctors set up but gender reversed, and ultimately whether you think it’s fine probably depends on whether this is pure fiction or just not palatable even in a fictional world. I fall in the latter but it’s a taboo that K-dramas love returning to time and again, not sure the fascination. The drama is from the PD of Extraordinary You and True Beauty, with the screenwriter of Doctor John and Cheondamdong Alice doing the script. The drama is scheduled to air late in 2021.
