Song Ji Hyo, Son Ho Jun, Dasom, Koo Ja Sung, + More Attend 1st Script Reading For New Rom-Com Drama
JTBC’s upcoming drama “Was It Love?” has shared photos from its first table read!
“Was It Love?” is a romantic comedy starring Song Ji Hyo as Noh Ae Jung, a movie producer and single mom who has been living on her own for 14 years. Despite having already given up on romance, she suddenly finds herself embarking on an unexpected second chapter of her love life when four very different men enter her story at the same time.
On May 30, JTBC released photos of its cast attending their first script reading. After the initial run-through, the actors agreed, “[The script] was fun even when I was reading it alone, but it was even more fun reading it together. I’m looking forward to how much more fun it will be when we actually start filming.”
According to those present, leading lady Song Ji Hyo wowed everyone with how immersed she became in her character’s emotions during the reading. Not only did she pour her heart and soul into her acting, but she also displayed impressive chemistry with each of the drama’s four leading men, making each of them an excitingly different, viable romantic prospect for Noh Ae Jung.
Son Ho Jun also captivated everyone with his transformation into Noh Ae Jung’s ex-boyfriend Oh Dae Oh, a bestselling novelist with irresistible “bad boy” appeal. The actor described Oh Dae Oh as “a character that is impossible to dislike, no matter how many unlikable things he does,” and he perfectly pulled off the difficult balance between charming and infuriating.
Song Jong Ho exuded A-list actor vibes in his role as Ryu Jin, a handsome movie star with a hidden pitiful side; while Koo Ja Sung made everyone’s hearts flutter as Oh Yeon Woo, a younger man with a winning smile who has his heart set on Noh Ae Jung.
Kim Min Joon rounded out the quartet of suitors as the “scary but sexy” Goo Pa Do, a former gangster who has turned over a new leaf and is now a CEO, while former SISTAR member Dasom added a layer of intrigue to the story as A-list actress Joo Ah Rin, whose international popularity has earned her the title of “Asia’s first love.”
Other actors present at the table read included Kim Mi Kyung, Uhm Chae Young, Kim Young Ah, Seo Jung Yeon, Lee Hwa Ryong, Jin Hee Kyung, Kim Byung Choon, Baek Soo Hee, Lee Gyo Yeop, Oh Hee Joon, Yoon Sung Woo, and Kim Kwang Gyu.
The producers of “Was It Love?” remarked, “We are grateful to be able to work together with such precious and amazing actors as we create a drama about reopening one’s love life. Since we are all creating it together, we hope that it will become a beautiful drama that remains in everyone’s hearts. We ask that you show lots of love and interest for the drama’s upcoming premiere.”
“Was It Love?” will premiere on July 8 at 9:30 p.m. KST. In the meantime, check out the first teaser for the drama here!
