Lee Jong Suk To Star In His 1st Romantic Comedy
Lee Jong Suk has announced that he will be starring in a new tvN romantic comedy!
On September 28, the actor confirmed that he would be appearing in the upcoming drama “Romance Supplement” (working title), marking his first romantic comedy role since his debut eight years ago.
“Romance Supplement” will follow the lives of employees who work at a publishing company. Lee Jong Suk will be starring as Cha Eun Ho, a brilliant writer who is also the company’s youngest editor-in-chief.
The drama will be helmed by Lee Jung Hyo, the director behind OCN’s “Life on Mars” and tvN’s “The Good Wife,” and written by Jung Hyun Jung, the writer behind the “I Need Romance” series.
Lee Jong Suk remarked, “I’ve always been a fan of writer Jung Hyun Jung’s and director Lee Jung Hyo’s work, so I’m delighted to be able to work together with them.”
He added, “I’m also very excited about taking on the romantic comedy genre for the first time. Because [‘Romance Supplement’] has a very different texture from the dramas I’ve taken on in the past, I think that I’ll be able to show a new side of myself that is different from what I’ve shown up until now.”
“Romance Supplement” is currently expected to premiere sometime in the first half of next year.
