Kim Ji Suk, Jung So Min, And Jung Gun Joo In Talks For New JTBC Romance Drama
Previously, Sports Chosun and Joy News 24 reported that the actors have been cast in an upcoming JTBC drama.
On June 2, a representative from JTBC confirmed, “Regarding the new drama ‘Monthly House’ (literal title), it is true that we’ve sent Kim Ji Suk, Jung Gun Joo, and Jung So Min offers to star in the drama. However, the detailed broadcasting schedule and whether or not they will star in the drama have not been decided yet.”
“Monthly House” is a home-searching romance story about a man who buys houses and a woman who lives in one. It follows the diverse stories of the editors of a home magazine.
Kim Ji Suk has been offered to play Yoo Ja Sung, the CEO of a real estate investment company and magazine company Monthly House who went from rags to riches. By studying during the day, working as a restaurant part-timer and a designated driver at night, and working at construction sites during the weekends, Yoo Ja Sung cut down on his sleep time to self-study real estate, eventually becoming an investment expert and wealthy man owning property worth tens of billions of won (tens of millions of dollars) in real estate. However, when he runs into Na Young Won, the two will begin an unexpected romance.
Jung So Min is in talks to star as Na Young Won, a magazine editor with 10 years of experience who has been living alone for 10 years at a rented home. She believes her home to be the place where she can truly be herself. However, when she meets her devil-like new homeowner and Monthly House magazine CEO, Na Young Won begins to search for a house of her own and develops an interest in real estate
Jung Gun Joo has been offered the role of camping fanatic and professional photographer Shin Kyum. Living by the principles of “you only live once” and “work-life balance,” Shin Kyum chose to become a photographer over inheriting his father’s business. He’s also Na Young Won’s neighbor and convenience store partner, allowing their fates to be constantly intertwined.
