Comedy goddesses are coming to give the small screen a big laugh. Hwang Jung Eum, Kim Yoo Jung, and Nana will present three distinctive romance dramas equipped with comedy.
Hwang Jung Eum is definitely the one who catches the eye. This is because she always succeeded when it comes to romantic comedies. In KBS2’s Men Are Men, which will premiere on July 6, she will once again showcase her unique comedy blended romance performances.
Men Are Men is a romantic comedy that takes place when two men with opposite charms hit on a woman who is enjoying her singledom. Hwang Jung Eum will appear as Seo Hyun Joo, who chooses to remain single, and work with Yoon Hyun Min and Seo Ji Hoon. As a veteran of a romantic comedy genre, Hwang Jung Eum is also responsible for leading her fellow actors. Yoon Hyun Min said, “I realized why Hwang Jung Eum is called the ‘queen of romantic comedy’ after working together. Every moment, I can feel her energy.”
Kim Yoo Jung also heralded a transformation. She challenges an unpredictable, eccentric character through Backstreet Rookie, which will premiere on June 19. The drama depicts the unpredictable comic romance created by a free spirit part-timer and a bit off convenience store manager against the backdrop of a 24-hour convenience store. Ji Chang Wook will work with Kim Yoo Jung.
The fact that Backstreet Rookie is the new work of producer Lee Myung Woo, who made a huge hit last year with The Fiery Priest, is drawing much attention. Kim Yoo Jung has played leading roles a few times, but she never got to show her comedy acting. So expectations are high on what kinds of synergy she will create with producer with producer Lee Myung Woo. Lee Myung Woo said, “I will tell the love story of the most general and most ordinary young people.”
Nana’s new challenge is also worth paying attention to. She will star in KBS2’s The Ballot, which will premiere on July 1. She will break away from her fancy images and put on a familiar character, heralding a comical transformation. Goo Se Ra, played by Nana, worked all kinds of part-time jobs, is full of vitality, and manages to show off her bluffing skills anywhere without a care in the world.
In The Ballot, Nana, who showed solid performances in the drama The Good Wife and the film The Swindlers, will lead the story of growth and love as she encounters the world.
