The cast of the upcoming SBS drama “Wok of Love” gathered for their first table read!
On April 16, “Wok of Love” released photos and a video clip from its first official script reading. The drama’s cast boasts an impressive roster of actors including 2PM’s Junho, Jang Hyuk, Jung Ryeo Won, Lee Mi Sook, Park Ji Young, Im Won Hee, Jo Jae Yoon, Kim Sa Kwon, and more.
“Wok of Love” is a romantic comedy about a star chef (played by Junho) who goes from running the kitchen of a renowned Chinese restaurant at a top hotel to working at a dingy neighborhood restaurant on the brink of shutting down.
