Lee Jung Shin (My Sassy Girl) has been offered the lead role in the new SBS drama Longing Heart. Longing Heart is a fantasy romantic comedy about a man who travels back in time to win the heart of his first love with the knowledge that she actually liked him back then. But much to his surprise, he ends up having to compete against his past self for her affections.
Well, that sounds like a lot of fun! There are plenty of time travel dramas these days (and no complaints here!), but it’s a bit unique to actually have the main guy’s competition be himself. I actually hope that if Lee Jung Shin accepts the role, he will be playing both characters since I think that would just add a lot more humor to the scenario. But either way, it sounds fun!
Longing Heart is looking to air on SBS Plus in November.
