Seo Hyun-jin up for new drama from Doctors writer, Temperature of Love

by tipsymocha


Seo Hyun-jin (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim) in another rom-com?! Man, if they manage it, I’m definitely tuning in. The writer behind Doctors and High Society, Ha Myung-hee, is preparing a drama adaptation to her novel Nice Soup Does Not Answer the Phone titled Temperature of Love, and an offer is out to Seo Hyun-jin to headline the show.

Temperature of Love is described as a romantic comedy for the Internet generation: Our heroine, Jae-in, is an aspiring drama screenwriter who one day strikes up an online rapport with a stranger with the handle Nice Soup, who dreams of becoming a French cuisine chef someday. Their relationship, and the stories of the people around them, will be the main focus of the show, which sounds breezy and slice-of-life. I can imagine the tone to be similar to this writer’s last drama, Doctors, except this time there will less doctoring for our main characters to do, thankfully. I enjoyed that show, and it was an easy watch, but I was constantly wondering how these surgeons had all this time to run around and romance each other.

SBS Offers Seo Hyun Jin Upcoming Mon-Tues K- Drama Rom- com The Temperature of Love




Yang Se-jong up to romance Seo Hyun-jin in Temperature of Love

by girlfriday



Aw, will the second lead get the girl this time? You know I love it when that happens. There’s a potential drama reunion in the works for Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim alums Seo Hyun-jin and Yang Se-jong, who are both considering the leading roles in the new SBS romantic-comedy drama Temperature of Love, along with Kim Jae-wook (Voice), who has signed on for a supporting role.

Romantic Doctor was Yang Se-jong’s acting debut less than a year ago(!), in which he played Yoo Yeon-seok’s uppity rival surgeon who harbored an unrequited love for Seo Hyun-jin. He seemed like a puppy in that drama, but after that and Saimdang, Light’s Diary, he’s since gone on to steal the show as a set of clones in OCN’s sci-fi thriller Duel. He’s so good at playing three different characters in that drama that I actually found myself thinking about a week ago, Oh the evil clone is the better actor… waitaminute…

Jo Boa up for Temperature of Love’s leading foursome

by girlfriday


Casting offers are now out to all four of our leads in the new SBS romantic comedy Temperature of Love, the new drama from writer Ha Myung-hee of Doctors, High Society, and Warm Words. Seo Hyun-jin (Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim) and Yang Se-jong (Duel) are currently in talks to headline, and if they both sign on, it’ll be a reunion for the Romantic Doctor co-stars. Kim Jae-wook (Voice) has been confirmed as the second lead, and now Jo Boa (The Man Living in Our House) is considering an offer to complete the love square.

The rom-com is an adaptation of the writer’s own novel Nice Soup Does Not Answer the Phone, about a relationship that begins online between a chef and a writer. Seo Hyun-jin is being courted to play the heroine, a frank and sometimes reckless aspiring drama writer whose curiosity always gets the better of her. Yang Se-jong is up to play a chef-owner of a Michelin-star restaurant called Good Soup, a competitive character who keeps other people at arm’s length.

Thanks for starting the thread! Will definitely be visiting more often in the days to come! Here's a trans I did based on a chinese news article on <Temp of Love> and the main leads.

 Thanks for the translations. I will include some of the information on the first page if I'm allowed. 

Seo Hyun Jin And Yang Se Jong From “Romantic Doctor Kim” To Reunite In New Drama


Former “Romantic Doctor Kim” co-stars Seo Hyun Jin and Yang Se Jong will be reuniting in SBS’s upcoming Monday-Tuesday drama “Temperature of Love” (literal title).

Seo Hyun Jin will be playing the role of a drama writer named Lee Hyun Soo who finally begins gaining recognition after spending 10 years as an assistant writer. Having graduated from a prestigious university, her character is known for her intelligence, confidence, and honesty, but she hasn’t always been successful in her relationships. She especially doesn’t believe in love at first sight.

Yang Se Jong will be playing the role of a chef named Ohn Jung Seon who works at a Michelin-starred restaurant after attending a culinary school in France. His character tends to rely on instinct rather than rational thought.

The two characters in the drama try to work out their relationship and find the optimum temperature of love. Block B’s P.O is also part of the cast.

“Temperature of Love” is written by writer Ha Myung Hee, whose previous works include “Doctors,” “Can We Get Married?“, “A Word From Warm Heart,” and “High Society.”

Sure. It was a write up from chinese news source, but I think it has more details than the Soompi news which is a more summarised version.

 The drama is confirmed. I prefer Kim Jae Wook male lead  for another drama (tvNremake of J-drama MSFTS that starred Kimura Takuya)). Same goes for Yang Se Jong.

 But anyway...

The character of the male lead, YSJ reminds me of Jo Jung Suk character from Oh My Ghost. The female lead, SHJ, I check actually... in real life...has 7 year age gap with the male lead (YSJ is 23/ 24) The character of the second lead KJW- I find it typical (don't like) and then he'll become a rival to YSJ? A rival to a young man? But he's like 33 or 34 in real life!  So I think the female lead and the second lead is more suitable or complement each other  better :D

Not fond of rom-com. I seldom watch the kdrama genre but as long as well written, I'll watch. Yang Se Jong and Kim Jae Wook. For sure I'm gonna watch.,

 I'm sorry I'm not that familiar with the female cast. But I've watch Romantic RDTK.

You watched the Japanese drama? I read about it when I heard about the remake. I still don`t know if I will watch the remake. Maybe I will watch the original version instead but I like your idea for Kim Jae Wook to be the protagonist in that drama. Maybe a great cast will convince me. 

I wish Kim Jae Wook and Seo Hyun Jin to be the couple on screen and Jo Bo Ah with Yang Se Jong too. But I like all four so let see their story. Maybe the second leads won`t be the rivals to the OTP too much. Hope they will concentrate in each other and let the other live their life. :)

So all main castings complete though i thought KJW was confirmed earlier.

The synopsis did say that KJW character likes the female lead while JBA character likes YSJ so definitely there will be some love rivalry there. KJW character got to befriend YSJ bec he likes what he cooks at a restaurant and then got into venture to open restaurant with him explaining the age gap between them.

It's a noona dongsaeng romance as much as we like KJW who in terms of age and looks suit female lead more, it will be a love story between SHJ and YSJ character, and I just heard its going to be more melo and rom com.

 Yes, some said that he was confirmed but there were not articles for the official confirmation. I think the actors are signing before media receives those confirmation and sometimes there are just rumors. They reported some time ago that Park Hyun Shik receive the offer to be the protagonist but he hasn’t even received a synopsis.

About the genre... The original novel was not a romantic comedy but the writer said that she will adapt the story to make it a warm rom com. I am alright if the drama will keep some melo elements.

Kim Jae Wook And Jo Bo Ah Confirmed To Join Seo Hyun Jin And Yang Se Jong In Upcoming Drama


Kim Jae Wook and Jo Bo Ah will be joining the cast of “Temperature of Love” (literal translation).

After previously confirming Seo Hyun Jin and Yang Se Jong, as well as Block B’s P.O, the upcoming SBS drama revealed on July 27 that Kim Jae Wook and Jo Bo Ah will also be part of the lineup.

Kim Jae Wook will play the role of Park Jung Woo, a genius businessman with an accurate eye for judging everything from business opportunities to people. His personality doesn’t allow him to let go of what he sets his eyes on. He falls for Seo Hyun Jin’s character Lee Hyun Soo due to her unique personality and writing talents.

Jo Bo Ah’s character Ji Hong Ah is born into a wealthy family, and due to her admiration for Lee Hyun Soo, she joins her as an assistant writer. However, as Lee Hyun Soo appears to be succeeding in both work and love, Ji Hong Ah’s jealousy begins to grow.

“Temperature of Love” is written by Ha Myung Hee, based off of her own 2014 novel. It will be directed by Nam Geon, who previously worked on “Jackpot.”

and for the genre im happy its not fully romcom and warm romance is pretty good description tho.And I wish YSJ will Playing Cold character Lol..i miss cold character in kdrama): where are them now?): i know my taste sound bad for wishing cold character but at this time when we have so many colorful male lead why not using cold male lead to make differences xD

Hello all. Very exciting castings. Looking forward to Seo Hyun Jin and Yang Se Jong burning up my screen. Like everyone, the writer's previous works didn't impress, but hopefully Hyun Jin and Se Jong can work their charms should the script lacks the punch (like Strong Woman Do Bong Soon). Evil second leads who ruin relationships are outdated trend these days, so I hope the writer wouldn't make Kim Jae Wook and Jo Bo Ah's characters into someone like that. Here's to hope we get a fun, enjoyable, lively, cute rom-com and whatever other genre it may be. With our leads' versatility, I wouldn't even mind she turn it into a rom-com, mystery, chase drama (Oh My Ghost + Voice + Duel) in the end, hahaha. xD

The casting is all coming together now. Actress Lee Mi Suk is the next confirmed cast, portraying Yang Se Jong's mother.
