A representative from Mnet told the media on February 24, “We are preparing a drama called ‘The Lover.’ Oh Jung Se, Ryu Hyun Kyung, Jung Joon Young, Choi Yeo Jin, Park Jong Hwan, and Ha Eun Sul are confirmed so far.”
“The Lover” will be an omnibus drama telling the stories of various couples who live together. Jung Joon Young and Choi Yeo Jin will play a couple 12 years apart in age who live together. Jung Joon Young will be a guitarist, while Choi Yeo Jin will be an entrepreneur with an online food business who is 12 years older than him.
Oh Jung Se and Ryu Hyun Kyung will portray a couple in their 30’s who decided to live together instead of getting married. Park Jung Hwan and Ha Eun Sul will be a couple who just started living together.
The drama will be produced by producer Kim Tae Eun of “Super Star K” (second to fourth season), and will be penned by screenwriter Kim Min Seok (“SNL Korea,” “Enemy of Broadcast“).
Consisting of 12 episodes in total, “The Lover” will premiere on Mnet in April.
