In short: It’s official, Song Ji Hyo and Park Shi Hoo will be romancing each other in a brand new show.
In detail: It’s a yes from both actors, who was previously said to be considering the lead roles for upcoming KBS drama, Lovely Horribly (literal title).
The show is described to be a “horror romantic comedy”, where the male and female leads are linked to each other by an unusual fate - if one of them is happy, misfortune will befall the other.
The premise bears a little resemblance to Lindsay Lohan’s straight-to-DVD movie Just My Luck. Park Shi Hoo will be playing successful A-list actor Yoo Phillip, whose luck never seems to run out, while Song Ji Hyo will co-star as an unlucky drama writer Eul Soon, who has nothing going right for her.
“I have a good feeling when I first read the script, because the genre is unusual. I’m excited about the drama and will do my utmost to make the drama a good one,” said Shi Hoo, who was previously involved in a rape scandal.
Ji Hyo echoed his thoughts, and shared her excitement about working on a drama with such “intriguing subject matter”. “I will work hard during filming to show great chemistry with the cast and crew,” she promised.
The show is set to premiere in August.
