On July 5, it was confirmed that both actors would be appearing in the new JTBC drama “The Third Charm” (working title). The drama is a romantic comedy that will tell the 12-year saga of a relationship, following the lovers from the tender age of 20 all the way to 32.
Seo Kang Joon will be starring as On Joon Young, a meticulous, careful planner who never deviates from his perfectly scheduled routines. Far from being fashion-conscious, the 20-year-old On Joon Young is a clean-cut model student who sports glasses and is always dressed in neatly folded jeans, white socks, and spotless sneakers. The only thing in his life that doesn’t go according to plan is his relationship with the nosy, boisterous Lee Young Jae, whom he ends up meeting by chance on a group blind date.
Lee Young Jae, who will be played by Esom, is almost entirely On Joon Young’s opposite in terms of personality. Spontaneous, emotional, and charmingly honest, Lee Young Jae endured a difficult childhood in which she and her older brother grew up without parents. At the age of 20, the ambitious and hardworking Lee Young Jae forgoes college in order to work as an assistant in a hair salon.
The producers of “The Third Charm” commented, “During the course of dating, you sometimes discover someone who doesn’t appear special to others, but who has a mysterious charm that makes you fall blindly in love. It’s ‘The Third Charm’ that the two lovers will discover over the metaphorical four seasons of their romantic relationship.”
They added, “We’re looking forward to infusing this coming autumn with the heart-fluttering feelings that accompany romance.”
