Actor Park Yoo Hwan has kept his promise and has given 1000 new employees a cup of coffee. The actor, who also plays new employee Lee Woo Young in tvN’s “I Need Romance 3” made a promise that he would give 1000 cups of coffee to new workers if the cable drama surpassed a viewership rating of 1%. As Korean cable shows have significantly lower viewership than a non-cable show, hitting the 1% mark in viewership is a testament to the cable show’s popularity. Yet, “I Need Romance” exceeded all expectations, as the February 4 episode of the drama at one point reached a high of 2%.
The special event held by the actor was not only a celebration for the drama’s continued success, but was also to encourage new employees at their new jobs. After the event, Park Yoo Hwan expressed, “I wanted to give warm coffee as presents to new employees, encouraging them in their work life and love life, as I too play a character who is a first year worker. It was a surprise appearance, but people welcomed me warmly, making this event even special.”
We hope that “I Need Romance 3” continues to experience much success in the future, and that new employees may also have an encouraging fresh start in their jobs.
