Kakao M announced that they will also introduce Kakao TV’s original drama City Couple’s Way of Love on Netflix. Each episode will be released first on Kakao TV from Dec 8 at 5 p.m. KST and be unveiled on Netflix two hours later.
Kakao TV’s original drama City Couple’s Way of Love tells the story of the realistic dating lives of young people fighting to survive in a hectic city. This short-form drama will be produced in multiple seasons, and the first episode to open the door will be subtitled “My Lovable Camera Thief.” The “true” love story between city men and women who dream of “another me” and enjoy a “cute deviation” in search of happiness and love will fill the small screen with heart-fluttering moments.
For this project, It’s Okay to Not Be Okay and Jealousy Incarnate director Park Shin Woo, and Discovery of Romance and Romance is a Bonus Book writer Jung Hyun Hung will join forces. Expectations are high on how the experts in rom-com will incorporate their unique emotions into the 30-minute short form. On top of that, “romance masters” Ji Chang Wook and Kim Ji Won took the lead roles, adding to the expectations. Kim Min Seok, So Ju Yeon, Ryu Kyung Soo and Ha Ji Eun have also confirmed their appearances.
Ji Chang Wook will be playing the role of Park Chae Won, an honest and overly passionate architect. He is a romantic who loves the city’s alleys and has a hobby of collecting hobbies. After a woman he calls the “camera thief” steals his heart one summer night and then disappears, he cannot let her go.
Kim Ji Won takes on the role of Lee Eun Oh, a freelance marketer. She sometimes puts on a different “identity” as a free-spirited woman Yoon Sun Ah. When she spontaneously decides to go someplace posing as Yoon Sun Ah, she accidentally ends up falling in love with Park Chae Won.
City Couple’s Way of Love will be unveiled on Dec 8 and released every Tuesday and Friday.
