Now that it has been announced that Ahn Hyo-seop (Father is Strange) dropped out of the upcoming JTBC drama Clean With Passion For Now (literal translation) due to schedule conflict, Yoon Kyun-sang (Doubtful Victory) has been reportedly offered the male lead role.
Clean With Passion For Now tells the story of Jang Sun-kyul (role offered to Yoon Kyun-sang), a wealthy owner of a cleaning business with severe germophobia, and Gil Oh-sol (Kim Yoo-jung), a free spirit who works as a part-timer in the cleaning company. Song Jae-rim will be Choi Gun, a mysterious guy who lives in a rooftop apartment in the same building where heroine Gil O-sol lives. His character was not in the original webtoon.
On May 25, reports stated that the production behind Clean with Passion for Now plans to resume filming in August following improvements in Kim Yoo-jung’s health.
Clean With Passion For Now will be directed by Noh Jong-chan (Cruel Palace, Personal Taste), while the drama adaptation’s script will be written by Han Hee-jung (Joseon Gunman).
The drama is looking to premiere in November.
