Now that Choi Siwon (She Was Pretty) is set to complete his mandatory military service in August, casting offers are coming his way for his comeback project. Reports recently surfaced that lead roles for cable channel tvN’s new romantic comedy Revolutionary Love is currently being offered to Siwon and Kang So-ra (Misaeng, Warm and Cozy).
Siwon’s agency SM Entertainment and Kang So-ra’s management Plum Entertainment both confirmed the respective offers on the two celebrities. No decisions have yet been made regarding the offers.
Revolutionary Love will be under the direction of PD Song Hyun-wook (Oh Hae-young Again) and will tell the story of a third generation chaebol living as an ordinary folk and an optimistic “candy” juggling a couple of part-time jobs.
Sounds like a very common premise for a romantic comedy, and I hope Siwon and So-ra, if they both accept the offers, will breath a different life into these familiar character descriptions. I don’t mind watching another light romantic comedy as long as we have promising characters.
Revolutionary Love is set to be aired on tvN later this year.
