Choi Siwon, Lee Da Hee, Park Yeon Woo, Lee Daehwi, And More Are Passionate At 1st Script Reading For Upcoming ENA Rom-Com
ENA has dropped photos from the first script reading of their upcoming Wednesday-Thursday drama!
“Icy Cold Romance” (literal title) tells the story of a “realistic survival romance” between Goo Yeo Reum and Park Jae Hoon, who have been best friends for 20 years. The pair begins to experience romantic feelings for each other after unexpectedly meeting as a producing director (PD) and cast member of a reality dating show. The drama will be written by scriptwriter Kim Sol Ji of “Heading to the Ground,” “Syndrome,” and “Pegasus Market” and helmed by PD Choi Gyu Shik of “Rude Miss Young Ae,” “Let’s Eat” Seasons 2 and 3, “Drinking Solo,” and “Hush.”
The first script reading photos capture the extraordinary passion and chemistry of the cast, which includes Lee Da Hee, Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, Jo Soo Hyang, Park Yeon Woo, Im Ha Ryong, Yang Hee Kyung, Min Jin Woong, Noh Susanna, and AB6IX’s Lee Daehwi.
Lee Da Hee stars as Goo Yeo Reum, who has been a variety show PD for the past 10 years and is desperate for both work and love. While reading the script, Lee Da Hee poured sincerity into each of her lines and led the atmosphere well with her emotional acting. Starring opposite Lee Da Hee is Choi Siwon, who portrays Park Jae Hoon. As a plastic surgeon who gets paid irregularly, Park Jae Hoon is basically unemployed and has lost interest in both work and love. During the reading, Choi Siwon depicted Park Jae Hoon’s aloof yet sweet charms as a classic male best friend with the perfect tone and expressions.
Although she was unable to attend the reading for personal reasons, Jo Soo Hyang plays Goo Yeo Reum’s college classmate and fellow variety show PD Kang Chae Ri who inevitably becomes her rival. Park Yeon Woo appears as the handsome celebrity chef John Jang, who joins Goo Yeo Reum’s reality dating show “Kingdom of Love” as a cast member. John Jang has a smart and free-spirited personality and knows exactly how to tease others.
Im Ha Ryong and Yang Hee Kyung play Goo Yeo Reum’s supportive and reliable parents Goo Yong Shik and Yoon Young Hee. These veteran actors needed no introduction and allowed everyone to feel the depth of their acting, proving their ability to become the sturdy core of the drama.
Real-life couple Min Jin Woong and Noh Susanna will play married couple Park Dae Shik and Oh Hye Jin, Goo Yeo Reum and Park Jae Hoon’s high school friends who run a chicken shop together. AB6IX’s Lee Daehwi will also appear as Kim Sang Woo, an assistant PD and Goo Yeo Reum’s trusty right-hand man.
The drama’s producers shared, “Within the story that goes back and forth between sweet and salty, the synergy between the actors that achieved perfect acting chemistry was really amazing. To the point where even the producers said, ‘I’m curious about the ‘Icy Cold Romance’ that we’ll meet on screen, [the reading] was a feast of passionate acting. As it’s so realistic, this is a romantic comedy that you will be able to watch even more enjoyably. The ‘Icy Cold Romance’ that’s exploded with extra special energy right from the script reading will seek out your home theaters this October, so please give lots of attention and affection.”
“Icy Cold Romance” will premiere on ENA next month following the conclusion of “Good Job“!
