Jung Gun Joo, Kim Won Hae, Chae Jung An, And More Join Jung So Min And Kim Ji Suk In Upcoming Drama
Back in October, it was announced that Jung So Min and Kim Ji Suk would be starring in JTBC’s “Monthly House” (literal translation), a romance drama about a man who thinks houses are for “buying” and a woman who thinks houses are for “living.”
Jung So Min has been cast as Na Young Won, the editor of a lifestyle magazine about the monthly rental lifestyle. Kim Ji Suk has been cast as Yoo Ja Sung, the CEO of the magazine, who believes that houses are just assets to make him rich. Also cast in the drama are Jung Gun Joo, Kim Won Hae, Chae Jung An, Ahn Chang Hwan, Yoon Ji On, Lee Hwa Kyum, and Ahn Hyun Ho.
Jung Gun Joo has been cast in the role of Shin Kyum, a photographer who works for the magazine. He lives by the motto “you only live once,” and thinks of “home” as wherever he happens to be at the moment. He had no worries until he met Na Young Won and enters into a love triangle with Yoo Ja Sung.
Kim Won Hae has been cast in the role of Choi Go, the editor-in-chief of the magazine. He lives with his wife and two high-school-aged sons in an 30-year-old apartment that he dreams of renovating. Chae Jung An has been cast in the role of Yeo Ui Joo, an editor with 13 years of experience, who lives in single luxury in an apartment that costs 1.3 million won per month (about $1,200). She firmly believes that all fixed assets, such as real estate, depreciate with time.
Ahn Chang Hwan has been cast in the role of Nam Sang Soon, an editor like Yeo Ui Joo, who is on the waiting list for his dream house. Lee Hwa Kyum, Yoon Ji On, and Ahn Hyun Ho play Yook Mi Ra and Gye Joo Hee, editorial assistants, and Jang Chan, assistant photographer. Yook Mi Ra is an admirer of Na Young Won, Gye Joo Hee is a textbook example of the “forgettable assistant,” and Jang Chan dreams of becoming successful as a YouTuber.
“Monthly House” is slated to premiere sometime in the first half of 2021.
