tvN has announced a new rom-com saeguk is in the works and offers are out to EXO’s D.O. (Room No.7) and Nam Ji-hyun (Suspicious Partner) to be its leads. The drama is titled Hundred Day Husband, which is touted as the “comedy sageuk Jason Bourne,” and it’s about the wacky adventures of a missing crown prince.
D.O. is up to play perfectionist crown prince Lee Yool who transformed into a useless commoner Won Deuk after falling from a cliff. Nam Ji-hyun has been offered the role of an intelligent woman who runs a detective agency and ends up meeting Lee Yool. Nam Ji-hyun has been in a lot of rom-coms lately so I’m pretty confident she can pull this one off, so I’m more interested to see how D.O will fare in this genre given his last drama roles are serious ones (see: It’s Okay, That’s Love; I Remember You).
The two actors are positively considering the offers.
