Go Back Couple is set to debut on KBS in a little over a month, and the way it is shaping up is so far looking good.
The drama will center on the story of estranged couple Jang Na-ra (One More Happy Ending) and Son Ho-jun (Blow Breeze), who are both unhappy with how their life together turned out. It is still unclear whether the show will have a time travel element, but it is sure that a huge chunk of it will be set on the main couple’s college years.
Cast as Son Ho-jun’s college best friends are Heo Jung-min (Introverted Boss) and Lee Ki-yung (Mirror of the Witch). Heo Jung-min’s character is described as a bit weakling in school who successfully changed his style due to his love for Han Bo-reum’s character. Lee Ki-yung, meanwhile, will play a character that is bright and charming, but is naïve and a little dumb.
On the other hand, Han Bo-reum (Bring It On, Ghost) is cast as one of the two best friends of Jang Nara’s character along with Jo Hye-jung (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo). Han Bo-reum is a former cheerleader with an easy-going personality and high alcohol tolerance, while Jo Hye-jyung is a bit of an oddball who has an innocent outer appearance but has a surprising dose of sarcasm.
In addition are Jang Ki-yong (The Liar and His Lover) and Go Bo-gyeol (Seven Day Queen), who will vie for the main leads’ love. Jang Ki-yong will play the character of an upperclassman that got turned down by Jang Na-ra after he unexpectedly confessed to her. Go Bo-gyeol, meanwhile, is a ballet major with whom Son Ho-jun had a one-sided love before.
And to complete the list of supporting characters is Im Ji-gyu (Man to Man) who will take on the role of Son Ho-jun’s sunbae in med school. He is now a hospital director and has a relationship with his hoobae built on their mutual dislike for one another.
Go Back Couple is set to take on Strongest Deliveryman’s timeslot on KBS starting October 13.
