In response to the report, KakaoTV commented, “The KakaoTV original drama ‘How About a Cup of Coffee?’ is being prepared. We are currently working on casting.” The OTT platform added, “Ong Seong Wu, who received a casting offer, is positively reviewing [the offer].”
Ong Seong Wu has received an offer to play Kang Go Bi, whose passion for coffee leads him to become a rookie barista at a coffee shop owned by Park Seok. Kang Go Bi learns about coffee and people through Park Seok’s life lessons.
