Jung Il-woo to play chef in SBS rom-com, Midnight Snack Couple

by stroopwafel


After weeks of being courted, Jung Il-woo (Haechi) has confirmed he’ll be taking on the lead role in the latest SBS rom-com, Midnight Snack Couple. Kang Ji-young (Soshite, Ikiru) and Lee Hak-joo (Be Melodramatic) are set to costar.

Jung will play a chef who runs his own late night restaurant and decides to take part in a variety show. His character, Park Jin-sung, is famed for his cooking skills and good looks. Kang Ji-young’s character, Kim Ah-jin, is the PD of said variety show and she gets caught up in a love triangle between Jung Il-woo and Lee Hak-joo.

I’ve seen Jung Il-woo on the variety show Convenience Store Restaurant, where the cast members create dishes and compete to have them sold in convenience stores and he really knows his way around the kitchen, so I expect this role will come quite naturally to him. Kang Ji-young (formerly of idol group Kara) is a bit of an unknown quantity for me. She’s been very active in the Japanese acting scene, so I’m hoping–if she is indeed the lead–that her experience will translate here.

Midnight Snack Couple, written by Park Seung-hye (A Man Called God) and directed by Song Ji-won (The King 2 Hearts), is set to air during the later half of 2020 on SBS.

I am not enthusiastic about kpop idols either but if there is a good script I can watch anyone. It seems that she has some experience as an actress. We should trust the casting director.We`ll see.

As the 2020 Tokyo Olympics was postponed due to the spread of Corona 19, broadcasters who had skipped the 'Olympic period' also had an emergency. Eventually, JTBC delays the 'Model Detective' that was scheduled to be aired on 27th April , and fills the gap by organizing the 'Midnight Snack couple'.

Originally, JTBC was planning to take a break from the drama due to the relay of the Olympics after the `` Model detective '', but there was a gap as the Tokyo Olympics was postponed to next year.

Broadcasters who left the broadcast during the Olympics also fell on fire. It is expected that some set-up works will be organized and filled in between.

Although the drama Model Detective has been postponed until July,  it has already taken a large part of the filming. 

Midnight Snack Couple is the work that Jung Il-woo and Kang Ji-young are casting as the main characters, and Kang Ji-young has recently been in a car accident by a drunk driver and hasn't returned to the shooting site, but thanks to the pre-production drama was on schedules. There is enough space, and it is expected that Kang Ji-young will return to filming.




 An official from JTBC said to MBN Star on the morning of the 9th, “We are currently discussing the formation of

“The late night snack Couple ”.

JTBC is planning to form “Late Night Snack Couple” as the sequel to “When the weather is fine” and “Detective Model” is likely to be broadcast in June and July.

“Late Night Snack Man and Woman” is a romantic comedy about a love triangle in which a man and a woman fight over the same man.

The upcoming drama will be Jung Il Woo’s first drama in one year since “Haechi.” Having already showcased his cooking skills through the variety show “Fun-staurant” (literal title), Jung Il Woo will be taking on the role of chef Park Jin Sung who runs the special late-night restaurant bistro72. Through an offer from his regular customer, producing director (PD) Kim Ah Jin (played by Kang Ji Young), he becomes the host of a cooking variety show (also titled “Late Night Snack Man and Woman”) while hiding a special secret. With his honest words and extraordinary cooking skills, chef Park Jin Sung will receive love from viewers all over the world.

As her first leading role in a Korean drama and her first domestic promotion in five years, Kang Ji Young will be taking on the role of the passionate PD Kim Ah Jin, a temporary variety PD who has been tirelessly running towards the goal of making her producing debut. Her only source of enjoyment in life is having a drink with delicious snacks at bistro72 after an exhausting day. Right before her contract expires, she receives the final chance to make the variety program “Late Night Snack Man and Woman” into a success.

Finally, Lee Hak Joo, who is currently starring in JTBC’s newest hit drama “The World of the Married,” will be making an eye-catching transformation for the upcoming drama as the popular designer Kang Tae Wan who does a phenomenal job of captivating customers’ hearts. Stylish and charismatic from head to toe with a successful career, he appears to be a character who isn’t lacking in anything. However, on the inside, he has built an invisible wall. Through some coincidence, he comes to be in charge of Park Jin Sung’s styling for the variety program.
