Yoon Park and Lee Sung Kyung to Star in MBC’s New Romantic Drama

Actor Yoon Park and actress-model Lee Sung Kyung have been confirmed as the lead couple for MBC’s upcoming weekend drama, “Flower of the Equator.”

According to a representative of the drama, Yoon Park will be playing the role of Park Jae Joon, the heir of a large company, who starts developing feelings for Kang Yi Sol. Marking her first lead role in a drama, Lee Sung Kyung will take on the character of Kang Yi Sol, who has been tragically abandoned by her very own mother, celebrity chef Lena Jung (Kim Sung Kyung).

Interestingly enough, the actor and actress are represented by JYP and YG Entertainment respectively, proving that the companies’ efforts in expanding into acting have certainly paid off.

“Flower of the Equator” (literal title) will revolve around the life of an ambitious woman and her lost daughter, and the incidents that take place following their reunion.

The drama is expected to premiere in February.
