In the drama, Kim Young Kwang and Yook Sungjae will be portraying the roles of a 20s male representative and a teen male representative, respectively. First, Kim Young Kwang is the attractive 29-year-old tour planner Kang Jin Goo. Kang Jin Goo is a free spirit that works at the nation’s first major travel agency. Within the company, he is the perfect man with looks and intelligence. However, his only issue his is inability to catch the heart of Ma Se Young (portrayed by Kyung Soo Jin), and this becomes his major struggle.

On the other hand, Yook Sungjae plays the judo athlete Kang Min Goo. As a 19-year-old, which is apparently when the blood is hottest for growing males, Kang Min Goo is passionate, charming, and has a huge appetite. His dream is to go to an elite college for judo, but ends up experiencing his greatest crisis at the most critical moment. One day, he meets his destiny Han Soo Ah (A Pink’s Park Chorong) and falls for her instantly. He is expected to experience a passionate love that he has not experienced before. Yook Sung Jae has been falling into his role by learning and training for judo so he can better portray his character. His transformation into the manliest man is highly anticipated.

The drama “Plus Nine Boys” will be about the unlucky romances of 9-year-old, 19-year-old, 29-year-old, and 39-year-old males (in Korea, the superstition is that if there is a “9” in your age, you will experience a crisis—thus they are called the “critical 9” years). It will also star Oh Jung Se, Yoo Da In, and child actors Choi Ro Woon, and Lee Chae Mi. The purpose of the drama is to express our daily lives and relationships through the family of men that are all experiencing the “critical 9” in their lives. The script will be written by Park Yoo Mi, who writes the scripts for KBS “Sponge” and MBC “We Got Married Season 4,” among others. It will be directed by Yoo Hak Chan, who also directed tvN “The Romantic” and “Three Fools” among other variety shows. He also co-directed last year’s big hit drama, “Reply 1994.” Fans are anticipating his wit in his continuation of comical drama series on tvN.
