Seo Kang-joon (Are You Human, Too?) and Esom (Because This is My First Life) have both signed on to star in the new JTBC romantic comedy The Third Charm (working title).
The drama is a slice-of-life romance about the 12-year relationship of two lovers with completely opposite personalities from their student years up until their early 30s.
Seo Kang-joon is set to appear as the hero On Joon-yung, a clean-cut model student who strictly follows a meticulously planned routine in his daily life. However, he falls in love with the nosy, boisterous Lee Young-jae, whom he met on a group blind date.
The role of Lee Young-jae will be portrayed by Esom, and is described as a spontaneous, frank, and hardworking assistant in a hair salon who grew up as an orphan.
The Third Charm will be helmed by rom-com master director Pyo Min-soo (Full House, Worlds Within, Fool’s Love, Producer).
The drama is scheduled to premiere in September.
