Read on to find out why “More Than Friends” will be worth the watch.
The bright, honest, and youthful synergy created by young actors
“More Than Friends” tells the story of young men and women who are truthful to their emotions and clumsy at love. Drama fans are already looking forward to seeing the friends-to-lovers chemistry shown by Ong Seong Wu and Shin Ye Eun. The two actors will show the detailed emotional changes the characters experience as they gradually go from long-time friends to something more than that. Adding to the story is Kim Dong Jun, who plays On Jun Su, a gentle and straightforward man who will break Kyung Woo Yeon’s curse of eternal one-sided love. The three main cast members are also joined by Block B’s P.O, Ahn Eun Jin, Choi Chan Ho, and Baek Soo Min, who will play Kyung Woo Yeon and Lee Soo’s friends of 10 years.
The thrilling yet sweet romance between Ong Seong Wu and Shin Ye Eun
The producers of “More Than Friends” emphasized, “The drama will fulfill the fantasies you dream of in reality. Romance with a guy friend, the reversal of one-sided love, a knight in shining armor who loves you, and friends who will always be on your side. The realization of your real world fantasies is what makes this drama appealing.” The story of Lee Soo and Kyung Woo Yeon, who are at the stage of going from friends to lovers, will deviate slightly from the usual romance. When Kyung Woo Yeon is about to give up on her long-time one-sided love for Lee Soo, Lee Soo finally realizes how his feelings have changed. Their timing is just slightly off, and that’s how their romance officially begins. While their relationship does not follow the usual love equation, the way the pair makes their way towards the right answer will make viewers want to be in a relationship of their own.
A realistic, relatable story of youth
While “More Than Friends” focuses on the romance between young men and women who struggle with love, it also provides a look into the reality faced by the youth. The characters’ feelings are what make them unsure about love, and those feelings are influenced by what goes on in their lives. Through its various characters, “More Than Friends” will shine a light on the reality that the youth live in. Lee Soo was hurt by his parents’ divorce, Kyung Woo Yeon is unable to highlight her job as a calligraphist, On Jun Su had closed off his heart due to the pain of his first love, Jin Sang Hyuk (P.O) walks on a different path from his peers and lives every day diligently, Kim Young Hee (Ahn Eun Jin) is hesitant about marriage due to her lack of money, Shin Hyun Jae (Choi Chan Ho) is wanting to marry his girlfriend of 10 years, and Han Jin Joo (Baek Soo Min) can figure out just about everything but love. Everyone experiences a period of youth in their lives, so the stories portrayed by these individuals are sure to make viewers relate.
“More Than Friends” will premiere on September 25 at 11 p.m. KST and will be available on Viki.
