Song Ji Hyo (My Wife’s Having an Affair This Week) has been offered the lead role in the new OCN drama Rom-Com King. Rom-Com King is a remake of the Japanese manga and drama Absolute Boyfriend. It tells the story of a make-up artist struggling with her love life who ends up with the perfect robot boyfriend. It comes from the writer of Mirror of the Witch and the PD of Flower Boy Next Door.
I’ve been interested in the original Japanese version of this story for a long time, so I’m excited to see it being adapted into a Korean drama. And Song Ji Hyo would be quite humorous in a role and story like this. I’m also super curious who our potential leading robot boyfriend will be.
Rom-Com King is looking to air sometime this year on OCN.
