Kim Se Jung and Ahn Hyo Seob Reunite as Brand Ambassadors for Indonesian Company Realfood

It’s 0-1 right now with the post A Business Proposal drama successes for the four leads who all benefited from the hit series. Kim Se Jung was first out of the gate with Today’s Webtoon and it’s one drama that I’ve heard really mixed reviews about in substantive ways. Those who don’t like it explain clearly why it’s a lackluster adaptation of the manga compared to the J-version and those who think it’s quite well done also explain clearly why the drama is being unfairly compared and works by itself. Ahn Hyo Seob is probably guaranteed a hit with Romantic Doctor, Teacher Kim 3 but his next drama the remake of Someday or One Day is the big question mark for me. But I’ll always have APB that I can rewatch and enjoy these two together, and fans will get another venue as both have been tapped to be brand ambassadors for Indonesian company Realfoods, telling me that APB must’ve been a big hit there as well.
