Song Seung Heon Confirmed To Star In MBC Drama Adaptation Of Hit Webtoon
It’s official: Song Seung Heon will be starring in an upcoming MBC drama!
On February 6, MBC confirmed that the actor would be playing the lead in its new Monday-Tuesday miniseries “Shall We Eat Dinner Together?” (working title), which is set to premiere this May.
Based on the webtoon of the same name, “Shall We Eat Dinner Together?” will tell the love story of a man and a woman who have grown jaded about romance after experiencing painful heartbreaks. Through eating dinner together, they eventually recover their ability to feel emotion and begin to find love over food.
The drama will be helmed by producing director (PD) Go Jae Hyun, who worked with Song Seung Heon on his previous dramas “The Player” and “Black,” while the script will be penned by Park Jae Bum, the writer behind the hit drama “The Fiery Priest.”
Song Seung Heon will star as psychiatrist and food psychologist Kim Hae Kyung, who analyzes people by watching them eat and uses the uncommon practice of treating his patients through food and meals. Although he is gentle and mild-mannered when treating his patients, he is brutally honest when it comes to critiquing food.
