Joo Sang Wook Is A Confident And Easygoing CEO In New Drama With Yoo In Na And Yoon Hyun Min
Joo Sang Wook is the mood maker who’s bringing laughter to the set of a brand-new rom-com!
ENA’s “Bo Ra! Deborah” (literal title) is a rom-com that follows the romance story of Deborah (Yoo In Na), the greatest dating coach who believes love is all about strategy, and the nonchalant Lee Soo Hyuk (Yoon Hyun Min), who struggles with love.
Joo Sang Wook plays Han Sang Jin, a man who’s unbearably easygoing and light when it comes to dating. The newly released photos from “Bo Ra! Deborah” show Han Sang Jin going about his daily life.
In one photo, Han Sang Jin immediately catches viewers’ eyes as he stands confidently in front of his employees at the publishing company Jinri, where he works as the CEO. He’s a moodsetter with impeccable insight and manners that make everyone fall for him.
Han Sang Jin is a person who lives the life of a free spirit rather than tying himself down with serious dating. He is Lee Soo Hyuk’s best friend and business partner and also his only source of relationship counseling. Needless to say, Han Sang Jin gives advice that’s likely less than helpful, and viewers can look forward to his and Lee Soo Hyuk’s bickering and humor throughout the show.
“Han Sang Jin is always the mood maker no matter where he goes,” Joo Sang Wook explained. “He’s a guy who considers himself to be other people’s ‘laugh button.'” He then went on to elaborate, “In order to portray Han Sang Jin’s humorousness, I used big facial expressions and gestures. My sense of humor is similar to Yoon Hyun Min’s, so we were quick to get close, almost like we’ve known each other for a really long time already. He went from being serious to playful and kept up with the rhythm well, so I had a lot of fun filming and didn’t even realize how fast time was going by.”
As for the unique charming points of “Bo Ra! Deborah,” Joo Sang Wook chose Deborah’s acute dating advice and each couple’s different stories. “It shows the many types of dating and love, which can’t be explained under a single definition, incorporated into different people’s unique situations. It’s a drama with realistic stories that raise people’s empathy since these situations could have happened to them at some point, and it’s something you can watch easily.”
“Bo Ra! Deborah” will premiere on April 12 at 9 p.m. KST. Check out a teaser for the drama here!
