tvN has shared photos from the first script reading of its upcoming romance drama!
“Crash Course in Romance” is a new romance drama starring Jeon Do Yeon and Jung Kyung Ho. The drama will deal with the warm but cold and sweet yet thrilling story of people who have to deal with the endlessly competitive nature of entrance exams. The drama follows the bittersweet scandal between an owner of a side dish shop who belatedly enters the world of entrance exams and a star instructor in Korea’s top private education sphere.
In addition to the drama’s director Yoo Jae Won and scriptwriter Yang Hee Seung, members of the star-studded cast consisting of Jeon Do Yeon, Jung Kyung Ho, Lee Bong Ryun, Oh Eui Sik, Shin Jae Ha, Noh Yoon Seo, Jang Young Nam, Kim Sun Young, Hwang Bo Ra, and more gathered together to showcase explosive chemistry at the script reading for “Crash Course in Romance.”
Before the script reading started, Director Yoo Jae Won greeted the team, “I feel reassured to see all the actors and staff gathered together in one place. I will try my best to make the filming a fun experience for everyone.” Writer Yang Hee Seung also remarked, “I hope everyone will be safe and happy all throughout filming. I will also work hard to finish the script until the end.”
When the script reading officially began, the actors quickly immersed themselves in their roles and performed enthusiastically as if they were at the actual filming site. Despite it being their first meeting, the actors perfectly embodied their characters and made viewers excited to see their synergy in the drama.
First, Jeon Do Yeon, who is showcasing her first rom-com in a while, mesmerized everyone with her presence and charisma. Playing Nam Haeng Sun, a former national athlete turned passionate boss of the National Representative Side Dish Shop, Jeon Do Yeon awed with her unparalleled performance. Jeon Do Yeon perfectly portrayed the tough Nam Haeng Sun, who despite being exhausted from life, stays firm, believes in her choices, and does not give excuses for them. In particular, she vividly depicted the situation drawn in the script not only with her delivery of lines but also with her gaze and gestures, leading the scene with her skills and lovely charm.
Jung Kyung Ho also brought his A-game in his portrayal of Korea’s best math instructor Choi Chi Yeol. Jung Kyung Ho quickly immersed himself as his character, who not only has exceptional skills but is also a great talker with extravagant showmanship. Jung Kyung Ho expressed in detail a variety of Choi Chi Yeol’s charms—sensitive, feisty, professional, and smart at work—through his flawless delivery of difficult mathematical formulas and excellent lecture skills.
Above all, Jeon Do Yeon and Jung Kyung Ho’s perfect chemistry despite working for the first time attracted keen attention. The harmony between the two drew smiles from everyone throughout the script reading and raised expectations for their on-screen romantic chemistry.
Lee Bong Ryun, Oh Eui Sik, Shin Jae Ha, Noh Yoon Seo, Jang Young Nam, Kim Sun Young, and Hwang Bo Ra gave their passionate performances as well, adding stability to the drama and doubling the fun.
The production team remarked, “From the first meeting, the actors’ chemistry was great, so it was fun even just watching. We will do our best to convey the warm atmosphere of the drama as well. We ask for your anticipation and interest in the drama’s first broadcast.”
“Crash Course in Romance” will air in January 2023.
