The drama, which is directed by Choi Sung Bum (“My ID Is Gangnam Beauty“) and written by Jo Seung Hee, is tentatively titled “Chances of Going from Friends to Lovers.” Kim Dong Jun had previously already confirmed his casting in the drama.

“Chances of Going from Friends to Lovers” is a realistic youth romance about a boy and a girl who have taken turns having one-sided crushes on each other for ten years. It will tell the love story of a boy who finally understands his own feelings and resolves to confess and a girl who has hidden her unrequited love for a long time.

Ong Seong Wu has been cast in the role of Lee Soo, a talented and handsome photographer who is selfish when it comes to love. He is the incarnation of self-love, being very self-satisfied and sure of himself. His life was calm until Kyung Woo Yeon butted her way into his life and shook up his heart.

Ong Seong Wu said, “I am nervous and excited to be greeting viewers this year with a new project and a new character. Please look forward to the story of Lee Soo and Woo Yeon in this drama that is tinted with the colors of youth. I will work hard in order to show a changed and cooler side of myself.”

Shin Ye Eun will be playing the role of Kyung Woo Yeon, a girl who doesn’t know much about dating and is stuck inside the “one-sided love” curse. She has had a secret crush on her friend Lee Soo for ten years. She is the type to go all in when she gets interested in something, even quitting her well-paying job to pursue a career as a calligrapher. She has strong preferences, tends to walk her own path, and keeps repeating the “instant date” lifestyle because she cannot forget her unrequited love. One day, Lee Soo reappears in her life along with a new man, Ohn Joon Soo, and her heart undergoes a change.

Shin Ye Eun said, “I am honored and grateful to be able to greet you again with a new project. I’m happy to be working on a warm drama as the days get warmer. I will work hard in order to repay the trust and support people have shown me. I will work hard in order to grow another level as an actor.”

Kim Dong Jun is playing the role of Ohn Joon Soo, a man who arrives in Kyung Woo Yeon’s life like it was fate. As the CEO of a publishing company, he has wealth, academic prestige, good looks, and a good character to boot. Due to an unfortunate experience with his first love, he has closed his heart to love. When he meets Kyung Woo Yeon, who resembles him in character, he begins to feel his heart beat again.

Kim Dong Jun said, “When I first received the script, I was excited at meeting a character who was different from ones I’d played before. Since I was cast in such a good production, I want to bring this warm and soft but direct ‘Ohn Joon Soo’ to life as much as possible.”
