TvN’s upcoming drama Hogu’s Love, set to air following Valid Love, has revealed photos from the first script reading.
TvN’s Hogu’s Love is a romantic comedy depicting Hogu (Choi Woo Sik), who has no dating experience at all, coincidentally running into his first love Do Do Hee (Uee), and getting tangled up in a complicated relationship and a dangerous friendship.
It will be directed by director Pyo Min Su, who produced KBS 2TV’s Iris 2, Full House and The World that They Live In and written by writer Yoon Nan Joong, who wrote tvN’s Flower Boy Ramen Shop, KBS 2TV’s Queen of the Office and more.
The cast and production team of Hogu’s Love recently gathered at the CJ E&M center to carry out the first script reading. This day’s script reading was attended by Uee, Choi Woo Sik, Lee Soo Kyung, director Pyo Min Su, writer Yoon Nan Joong as well as the rest of the cast and staff members. Due to the unique characters and lines, the script reading was filled with laughter, marking a good start.
Prior to the script reading, director Pyo Min Soo said, “When this drama ends, it will be April of 2015, around the spring. I hope that we can carry this out happily and healthily so that this drama can help people welcome a happy spring.”
After School’s Uee, who will be acting as Hogu’s first love and the national swimming team’s goddess ‘Do Do Hee,’ perfectly pulled off the competitive and rough character. Uee’s comical acting shown in the script reading video also brings out laughter.
Choi Woo Sik, who will be acting as ‘Kang Hogu,’ showed off his cheerful charms and natural acting ability, transforming into Korea’s representative ‘pushover.’ Once the script reading started, Choi Woo Sik synced with his character by not only using various voice tones and facial expressions but meeting eyes with his co-star Uee as if he was actually filming the drama. Acting opposite each other, Uee and Choi Woo Sik smiled each time they met eyes during script reading, showing fantastic chemistry. They even earned the nickname of ‘Woo Yoo couple’ on the spot, hinting at the popularity of the drama.
The rookie actress Lee Soo Kyung, who will be acting as Hogu’s twin sister, also caught attention by syncing 100 percent with her character ‘Kang Ho Kyung.’ Standing at 170 cm tall and with a confident image, Lee Soo Kyung dynamically expressed her tomboyish and sloppy character.
Hogu’s Love is set to begin on February 9 at 11 p.m. (KST)
