Ong Seong-wu (More Than Friends) has chosen the upcoming KakaoTV drama “How About a Cup of Coffee?” (literal title) as his next project.
The drama, based on the manhwa of the same name by Heo Young-man, is about a rookie barista who learns about the craft under the wing of a coffee master.
Ong Seong-wu will play the lead character Kang Go-bi, who is passionate about the art of coffee making. This eventually leads him to work as a rookie barista in a cafe called 2Dae Coffee, and learns from coffee master Park Seok.
Park Ho-san (Penthouse 3) will play the role of Park Seok, who will train Ong Seong-wu’s character not just coffee making, but also give valuable life lessons.
“How About a Cup of Coffee?” will be a 12-episode drama and will be directed by No Jung-wook. It aims to premiere in the second half of 2021.
