It looks like we have another new JTBC drama on the horizon. Joo Sang Wook (Glamorous Temtation) and Kim Hyun Joo (I Have a Lover) have been offered leading roles in the new JTBC drama Fantastic. Fantastic will be a romantic comedy about a love story between a popular star and terminally ill drama writer.
We also have much of the supporting cast in place with Kim Tae Hoon (One More Happy Ending), Park Shi Yeon (Greatest Marriage), and Ji Soo (Doctors) already confirmed. The drama comes from the writer of Sad Love Song and Vampire Idol.
So the premise sounds a bit a sad, but it’s supposed to be romantic comedy, so I guess they will try to keep everything light-hearted. I’m not familiar with Kim Hyun Joo, but I’ve enjoyed Joo Sang Wook in what little I’ve seen of him. But I really love all of the supporting cast and know we will get solid performances from all of them. But seriously, it is time for Ji Soo to have a proper lead role!
Fantastic is scheduled to premiere in September on JTBC.
