The cast and crew of KBS 2TV’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “Radio Romance” gathered at KBS on December 19 for the script reading of the drama.
Director Kim Shin Il, writer Jun Yoo Ri, actors Yoon Doojoon of Highlight, Kim So Hyun, Girl’s Day’s Yura, Ha Joon, Kwak Dong Yeon, Lee Eui Woong, and more participated in the table read. Before the reading began, the director of the drama department gave an encouraging statement to the cast and crew.
On behalf of the actors, lead Yoon Doojoon said, “I think it is fate that we are all working together. I hope we can finish the drama smiling and work hard until the end as a radio family.” Lead Kim So Hyun also stated, “This is my first dramas since I became a 20-year-old adult, so I will work really hard.”
“Radio Romance” is about top actor Ji Su Ho (Yoon Doojoon) who can’t do anything without a script, radio scriptwriter Song Geu Rim (Kim So Hyun) who casts him as the DJ, and all of the unexpected events that happen at a radio station.
Yoon Doojoon used precise acting to portray the duality of Ji Su Ho, whose life on and off-camera is scripted. He is always polite and friendly to others, but is actually cranky, cynical, and socially awkward in real life. Kim So Hyun used her years of her acting experience to breathe life into her character who is lovely and strong at the same time.
Other characters on “Radio Romance” include a daring actress dreaming of a comeback named Jin Tae Ri (Yura), Ji Su Ho’s manager Kim Joon Woo (Ha Joon) who fights to get roles for his actor, and Ji Su Ho’s best friend and handsome psychiatrist Jason (Kwak Dong Yeon).
A source from the staff said, “It was a script reading where warm emotions came to life with the script, directing from director Kim Shin Il, and the actors’ enthusiastic performances. We are working hard to create a drama that can move viewers with fun and warmth this cold winter. Please give ‘Radio Romance’ lots of interest and love until the airing of its first episode.”
“Radio Romance” will air in January of 2018 after the end of “Jugglers.”
