Yeo Jin Goo (Reunited Worlds) has been offered a lead role in the new drama Romantic Comedy King. He would play a robot created to be the perfect boyfriend. Hmm, I’m super anxious to see Yeo Jin Goo select a new project, but I’m not sure how I feel about him being a robot. I’m all for the recent robot trend, but Yeo Jin Goo is such an emotionally intense actor that I don’t want him to be constrained with his emotions. But I know he is talented enough to convey a lot though very subtle expressions. The drama interests me regardless, so it would just be an added bonus if he does decide to sign on.
He would join Chun Jung Myung (Master: God of Noodles) who will play a top star. Korean media outlets had originally reported Song Ji Hyo (My Wife’s Having an Affair This Week) would be starring in the drama, but it was later revealed that she declined the role.
Romantic Comedy 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.
Romantic Comedy King is looking to air sometime this year.
