Gong Seung Yeon Confirmed To Join Park Ji Hoon, Kim Min Jae, And More In Upcoming Historical Romantic Comedy
On April 15, the production team of JTBC’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency” (literal title) revealed that the drama’s main actors have been confirmed.
“Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency” will tell the story of a king who makes a request to Joseon’s best dating agency Flower Crew to protect his first love. Upon his request, the matchmakers at the agency risk their own lives to transform the lowly woman Gae Ddong into the most noble woman. Writer Kim Yi Rang has joined forces with director Kim Ga Ram of “Devilish Joy” and “Vampire Detective” for the drama.
Kim Min Jae has been cast for the role of Ma Hoon, Joseon’s best male matchmaker and the hottest guy in the city of Hanyang. As the leader of Flower Crew, he oversees businesses in dating, marriage, divorce, and remarriage. He does not discriminate against gender or social standing when it comes to customers. He uses his intuition and ability to see through people to find the right person for everyone.
Gong Seung Yeon will take on the role of Gae Ddong, a stubborn girl who could pass as a man. In order to survive, she chooses pants over skirts. She is famously known for taking on any tasks only for a dollar, whether it is woodcutting, delivering heavy rice bags, or stopping people from having physical fights on the streets.
Seo Ji Hoon will play the role of the king Lee Soo, who is willing to sacrifice his own life for his first love. He lived 23 years as an ordinary blacksmith but became a king against his will overnight. He used to be able to freely live his life, but now he is under 24-hour surveillance of his servants. Most of all, he is exhausted from various women in the palace continuously trying to seduce him when his heart is only set on finding his first love Gae Ddong.
Park Ji Hoon has taken on the role of Go Young Soo, Flower Crew’s image consultant. He is Hanyang’s hottest celebrity who turns streets into runways. He is also the most fashionable man in Joseon, and with his knowledge in beauty and fashion, he can turn anyone into a likable person.
Byun Woo Seok will play Flower Crew’s informant Do Joon. Do Joon used to be a son of a wealthy family who was perfect in every way . However, due to the fall of his family, Do Joon is forced to live an aimless life. One day, Ma Hoon appears in front him, asking to buy any information he has on everyone in the city of Hanyang.
The production team said, “For the first time in a while, we will be presenting a historical romantic comedy. Set in the mid-Joseon dynasty, the drama will feature a romance between good-looking men and women that will stimulate all of your five senses. We have cast actors in their 20s who are perfect for the roles they have each taken. Please look forward to the fresh and exciting chemistry between Kim Min Jae, Gong Seung Yeon, Seo Ji Hoon, Park Ji Hoon, and Byun Woo Seok.”
“Flower Crew: Joseon Marriage Agency” is set to premiere sometime in September.
