KBS’s new drama Dear.M has confirmed its cast.
On September 3, KBS announced that NCT’s Jaehyun, Park Hye Soo, Kim Sae Ron, and Bae Hyun Sung will play the lead roles in Dear.M, a spin-off of the hit web-drama series Love Playlist.
Dear.M is a youth romance drama about the campus-wide search for the mysterious “M,” an individual who wrote the post on the online community that turned the entire college upside down. Expectations are high on how Park Hae Soo and Jaehyun will take a step into the Love Playlist worldview.
Park Hye Soo plays Ma Joo Ah, a cheerful second-year business administration major. She is always bright and loves meddling in others’ affairs. One other thing that stands out about her is that she was never interested in boys and voluntarily stayed single.
Jaehyun will make his acting debut as Cha Min Ho, a smart and imaginative second-year computer engineering student who comes up with an idea to develop an exciting new app. He and Ma Joo Ah have stayed as close friends for the past 12 years.
Meanwhile, Kim Sae Ron and Bae Hyun Sung will appear as Seo Ji Min and Park Ha Neul, the same roles they played in Love Playlist: Season 4. In Dear.M, they will continue to give viewers butterflies as a beloved campus couple.
“It expresses the real life and love of young people,” an official said. “It contains not only the excitement of campus life, but also the harsh reality. We will give sympathy to the younger generation and bring back memories for the older generation.“
Love Playlist writer Lee Seul has joined forces with to. Jenny director Park Jin Woo and director Seo Joo Wan, known for I Hate Going to Work and Love Revolution, for Dear.M.
Dear.M plans to premiere in the first half of 2021.
