Actor Lee Jong Suk confirmed his appearance in the drama "Romance is a Bonus Book" (roughly translated). This is the first time that he takes on the romantic comedy genre.

"Romance is a Bonus Book" (tvN) will be aired its first episode next year. The drama is the story about editors in a publishing agency. This is not only the come-back work of Lee Jong Suk but it also the first rom-com drama that he chooses to appear in after eight years of debut. The drama "Romance is a Bonus Book" marks the reunion of director Lee Jung Hyo and screenwriter Jung Hyun Jung.

In the drama, Lee Jong Suk will play Cha Eun Ho - who is both a genius writer and the youngest editor of the Publishing House. Cha Eun Ho is a smart, seductive man who has constantly been successful as an author since he suddenly appeared in the field of student literature and became "idol of literature forum." This is a charismatic character with exceptional appearance, he has a warm heart and gentle personality hidden behind his cold face at work. The public is focusing their attention on how Lee Jong Suk will portray the character in his first challenge to the rom-com genre.

Lee Jong Suk expressed his thoughts on participating in this movie. He said, "I really like the writings of Jung Hyun Jung and director Lee Jung Hyo, so it's nice to be able to work with them now. This is also the first time I have challenged with the rom-com genre, I'm really looking forward to it. This new drama is greatly different from the movies I've played, so I will be able to give the audience a brand new look."

Director Lee Jung Hyo is the one that directed the two recently-ended dramas "Life On Mars" (OCN) and "The Good Wife" (tvN). Both of them are highly appreciated by the audience. In addition, he also once worked with screenwriter Jung Hyun Jung in tvN's drama "I Need Romance," thus their reunion in "Romance is a Bonus Book" is the highlight that receives great expectation. Story & Pictures Media - the company that produced JTBC's "Misty," will undertake the production of this drama. The first episode is expected to be aired in early 2019 on tvN.

[Orion's Daily Ramblings] 
Lee Jong Suk Lands First Romantic Comedy Lead With Romance Supplement



I may not be able to hear the joyful screams of Lee Jong-suk fans as the actor enters his first leading role in a romantic comedy drama, but I can definitely feel them. Lee Jong-suk will be leading tvN's upcoming publishing house rom-com "Romance Supplement", which will air in the first half of 2019.
"Romance Supplement" tells the story of people creating books against the backdrop of a publishing company. It is helmed by PD Lee Jeong-hyo, and written by Jeong Hyeon-jeong. The two have previously worked together in "I Need Romance", and more recently in "Because It's the First Time".

Lee Jong-suk plays Cha Eun-ho, a genius writer, and the youngest editor in the company. Eun-ho began to show his worth as a literary writer during his school days, and has been steadily rising in his career. Although he appears cold at work, he is a reasonable man with a warm heart, and an appealing demeanor and looks.
On his choice, the actor has commented "I have always liked the works of Jeong Hyeon-jeong and Lee Jeong-hyo, so I am happy to work with them". He added "I am looking forward to my first foray into the romantic comedy genre. Since the drama is not similar to any of my previous works, I should be able to show you something different".
The splicing of office and romance drama is a staple of Korean shows, but with a hit creator duo, and a capable male lead, it has a lot going for it already. I didn't even notice that Lee Jong-suk hasn't been the lead in a rom-com series before, so let's hope that this will be a welcome new experience for him.
