Ryu Jun Yeol to Star in Korean Drama Lucky Romance With Hwang Jung Eum

Lucky Romance Korean Drama - Ryu Jun Yeol

Well, that was a short wait!  Ryu Jun Yeol (Reply 1988) has been confirmed to star with Hwang Jung Eum (She Was Pretty) in the new MBC romantic comedy Lucky Romance.  News of Hwang Jung Eum accepting the female lead role came just a day ago, so things have moved quite quickly.

This is a pairing I wouldn’t have initially pictured.  I liked Ryu Jun Yeol fine in Reply 1988, but he wasn’t someone who stood out to me in any way.  That being said, he fits the description of our uptight, frugal leading man.  Hopefully, I’ll warm up to him a bit, but either way, I’m still super excited to see Hwang Jung Eum in this drama!

Lucky Romance is based on a webtoon about a quirky, superstitious girl who is obsessed with making sure she is lucky in life.  Then a fortune teller tells her she needs to sleep with a man with the tiger zodiac sign in order to ward off death.  That man ends up being her landlord who is her complete opposite.  He’s a stingy, penny-pincher and will do whatever he can to save money.  Of course, the two don’t get along at all, which sets up the already comical scenario.

Lucky Romance is scheduled to premiere in May on MBC.
