Kang So-ra returns to dramaland with Jang Seung-jo for ENA

by stroopwafel

canwestrange8.jpg

 

Kang So-ra (Revolutionary Love) is making her dramaland return after five years with ENA’s legal rom-com, Can We Be Strangers. Jang Seung-jo (Good Detective 2) costars as her former husband and current law firm colleague.

 

The two were once married, and after they divorced they built out separate lives, essentially becoming strangers. Post-divorce, their lives come together once more when they both begin working at the same law firm. Now reunited, they come to realize that divorce was actually the easy part of their relationship.

Kang So-ra’s character Oh Ha-ra is a star in her field, specializing in divorce. She has a sort of love-hate relationship with her former husband and current colleague, Gu Eun-bum (played by Jang Seung-jo). She wants to hate him, but can’t actually manage to muster up the hate. Joining the main cast we also have Moo Jin-sung (Birthcare Center) as Min Jae-kyum. He’s a close friend of Eun-bum’s and has a special bond with Oh Ha-ra. (Man, there are so many ways to interpret the meaning of “special bond.”)

 

The first look at our drama comes via a poster and a short, snappy video teaser. The video starts with an introduction to Oh Ha-ra, whose nickname is “The Goddess of Divorces.” In voiceover, we hear her ask, “Well, if it isn’t Mr. Ex-husband.” Gu Eun-bum gives a chirpy “Ta-da!” Copy pops up on the screen: “It’s me, your ex-husband.”

 

 

In the next cut, instead of responding with a hello, or handshake, or anything non-violent, Oh Ha-ra grabs him by the necktie and wields a knife in a pretty threatening way while Eun-bum cowers. She angrily states, “He’s not a lawyer, he’s a conman.” In tandem, copy runs across the screen reading: “Divorce is easy, breaking up is hard.” Snippets of the two together flash across the screen, but then the teaser slows down to focus on them sharing a meal. Eun-bum leans in and starts to ask, “So, can we…” Ha-ra finishes the question, “Be strangers?”

I’m so glad to have Kang So-ra back in dramaland that I don’t even mind that we’re getting yet another legal drama, after a year of so many legal dramas. I’m also intrigued by the drama’s focus on personal growth — lately, I’ve been drawn to coming-of-age stories of characters who should be full-on adulting, but aren’t quite there yet. Plus, how can I say no to a drama with Jang Seung-jo as male lead?

Directed by Kim Yang-hee (Our Blues) and written by Park Jin-ri, Can We Be Strangers will premiere in ENA’s Wednesday-Thursday time slot sometime in January 2023.

‘Can I be a stranger’ Kang So-ra x Jang Seung-jo, sweet salty sweet reading scene revealed

 

image_readtop_2022_1112090_1670574482527

 

The scene of the script reading for Genie TV's original drama 'Could I be a stranger' starring actors Kang So-ra and Jang Seung-jo was revealed.

 

Genie TV's original drama 'Could I be a stranger', which will be released for the first time in January 2023, is a drama about the love and life growth of divorce lawyers who are easy to divorce but difficult to break up. It is also attracting attention as the next work of director Kim Yang-hee, who co-directed 'Our Blues'.

 

The script reading stills and behind-the-scenes making, which were released this time, are attracting attention as they contain the friendly scene as it is. Kang So-ra, who perfectly transformed into the role of ‘O’Hara’, a star lawyer who is called the goddess of litigation, begins with “What are the characteristics of cheating seedlings?” Kang So-ra added to the anticipation by saying, “I think I will show you a cider because it is a role that expresses emotions honestly and without hesitation.”

 

Jang Seung-jo, who plays the ex-husband of 'O'Hara', who has a sad personality that cannot be hated even if he tries to hate it, and the talented lawyer 'Goo Eun-beom', boasted a perfect synchro rate with the character with his unique skillful acting. To the runaway ‘O’Hara’, he responded by telling her to maintain her dignity, saying, “She is a star lawyer,” and said, “Share the office with her ex-husband. Jang Seung-jo's natural virtuous acting, which responds leisurely to the appearance of saying "Does that make sense?", stimulates curiosity by predicting the situations that will happen when 'O'Hara' and 'Ko Eun-beom' meet again in an office after divorce. In response, Jang Seung-jo also pointed out the point of watching the drama, "Please wait and see if the two of them can go back from being strangers to being you."

 

The key characters of 'Dohwang Law Firm', which specializes in divorce with 'O'Hara' and 'Koo Eun-beom', were also revealed through the script reading scene stills and making video. Jo Eun-ji plays the role of ‘Kang Bi-chwi’, a Marathon trader who is from California and has an open mindset and straightforward expressions. ' Lee Jae-won in the role, Jeon Bae-soo in the role of 'Seo Han-gil', who leads the law office Du-hwang, Gil Hae-yeon in the role of 'Hong Yeo-rae', and warm-hearted romance with 'O'Hara', a close younger brother of 'Goo Eun-beom'. Up to the inexhaustibility of the role of 'Min Jae-gyeom', who has both appearance and specs, the ensemble acting of actors full of personality can also be met in advance, raising expectations.

 

The life empathy drama ‘Could I Be Someone else’, which is expected to reveal the behind-the-scenes making of the script reading steel and on-site behind-the-scenes making of various characters, will be released on Genie TV in January 2023 and will also be broadcast on the ENA channel.

Watch: Kang Sora, Jang Seung Jo, And More Come Together For First Script Reading Of New Drama

Dec 14, 2022
by AliG
 

Upcoming drama “Can We Be Strangers?” (literal translation) has released new footage of the cast at their first script reading!

The drama will follow star divorce lawyer Oh Ha Ra (Kang Sora) and her ex-husband Goo Eun Beom (Jang Seung Jo), who is also a lawyer. Oh Ha Ra, an expert in her field, is known as “the goddess of litigation,” and she has her mind already made up about how she is meant to hate her ex-husband. But what happens when the two are brought together once again, this time as colleagues?

Kang Sora, who plays the expert divorce lawyer Oh Ha Ra, started off the script reading strong, with her first line being “What are the characteristics of the seeds of infidelity?” She spoke these words with a clear and clipped tone, giving just a taste of her character’s intensity. Kang Sora also described her character as being honest in the way she expresses her emotions.

Jang Seung Jo slipped naturally into his role of Goo Eun Beom, Oh Ha Ra’s ex-husband who is also a talented lawyer. He gave a memorable performance at the script reading, showing off his perfect chemistry with Kang Sora as they depicted two people with a lot of history muddling their current lives. As for what viewers should keep an eye out for, Jang Seung Jo said, “Look forward to seeing if these two can go back to being lovers instead of strangers.”

Other members of the cast who joined Kang Sora and Jang Seung Jo at the script reading included Jo Eun Ji, who plays Kang Bi Chwi, a Korean-born Californian with a very open mindset who has the habit of telling things as they are. Lee Jae Won will play Kwon Si Wook, a man who is conservative to the core and is the exact opposite of Kang Bi Chwi. Also present were Jeon Bae Soo, who will play Seo Han Gil; Gil Hae Yeon, who will play Hong Yeo Rae; and Moo Jin Sung, who will play Min Jae Gyeom.

Kang So-ra and Jang Seung-jo wonder… Can We Be Strangers?

by tccolb

cwbst3.jpg

New promos have been released for ENA’s upcoming rom-com Can We Be Strangers, including character stills and a couple mini teasers of our story’s main leads, Kang So-ra (Revolutionary Love) and Jang Seung-jo (Good Detective 2).

The competent and honest Oh Ha-ra (Kang So-ra) is considered the ace lawyer at her firm, specializing in divorce cases. But despite her expertise on the subject matter, going through her own divorce put things in a new perspective and the journey understandably has not been an easy one.

 

Her then-husband Gu Eun-bum (Jang Seung-jo) had worked at the same firm and initially resigned upon their divorce. But perhaps due to his easygoing personality, he now shows no qualms about returning to the same law firm – even though it forces him and Ha-ra to become work colleagues again.

Although not featured in the latest round of promos, the cast lineup also includes fellow lawyers Jo Eun-ji (Human Disqualification) and Lee Jae-won (Dr. Brain). We also have the firm’s co-heads, Jeon Bae-soo (Extraordinary Attorney Woo) and Gil Hae-yeon (Trolley), as well as Eun-bum’s friend Moo Jin-sung (Birthcare Center).

 

The new spot teasers are really just quick snippets of Ha-ra and Eun-bum’s current relationship, and we get a sense of how comfortable they are with one another still, even with the dissolution of their marriage.

In the first video, an angered Ha-ra curses Eun-bum and calls him shameless as she attacks him with her purse. But the dumbfounded Eun-bum only wonders what’s wrong.

During their post-shoot interview, Kang Sora summed up the drama by saying, “It’s the story of divorce lawyers Ha Ra and Eun Beom getting divorced after getting married, then meeting again.”

“They say that even a married couple who have lived together their entire lives don’t know each other that well,” she noted, “and this drama will follow what happens when two people end up reuniting after getting divorced.”

 

Jang Seung Jo also pointed out that their show differs from typical romance dramas, noting, “It’s not the story of lovers breaking up and then getting back together, but of a divorced couple meeting again. Because it’s different from ordinary love stories, we’ll be able to show you a wide variety of emotions.”

“Can We Be Strangers” is a new romance drama about two divorce lawyers who get married after 10 years of dating, only to wind up getting divorced themselves. When they meet again as colleagues after their divorce, sparks fly at every turn. Kang Sora will play the role of star divorce lawyer Oh Ha Ra, who is known as the “goddess of litigation,” while Jang Seung Jo will play her witty ex Goo Eun Beom, who is a talented lawyer himself.

The newly released trailer begins with the short but intense phrase, “I’m a divorce lawyer,” that instantly sums up Oh Ha Ra’s and Goo Eun Beom’s identities, and as some words are removed and changed, it then reads, “I’m divorced too.” When Oh Ha Ra narrates in the background, “What is happiness?” the trailer gives viewers a glimpse of the ex-couple’s journey. Described with the five keywords fate, love, marriage, hatred, and separation, the drama hints at the turbulent emotions of the two’s bittersweet past relationship as moments of when they first met and fell in love to when the relationship turned sour flash in succession.

The messages at the end of the trailer also give a deep lingering impression as they read, “Happiness. Happiness? Please tell me. Tell me what real love is. What real separation is. What real happiness is.”

Nice to see Seung Jo in a lighter mood in a drama, 'cause he scared me in "Snowdrop" ha-ha! 

    So Ra is back after marriage and motherhood. Sorta like how Kim Tae Hee is. Though I notice the men are more active than the women tsk. 

    This drama is probably my most anticipated one yet. Hope it doesn't disappoint.

Checking in on the latest promos for ENA’s Can We Be Strangers, we get a deeper look at our leads Kang So-ra (Revolutionary Love) and Jang Seung-jo (Good Detective 2) in a new poster and video teaser, as well as new stills.

The rom-com places fellow lawyers Oh Ha-ra (Kang So-ra) and Gu Eun-bum (Jang Seung-jo) in a sticky situation: they’re a divorced couple who now have to work together as colleagues at the same firm. But, as seen in the new trailer, this allows our ex-pair another opportunity to reflect on their tangled past and  think about how they can re-define their relationship going forward.

 

In the new teaser, we open with Ha-ra explaining that she’s a divorce lawsuit goddess while the captions continue: “I am a lawyer who specializes in divorce. I am divorced as well.” As she wonders aloud about what happiness might be, the following sequence takes us through Ha-ra and Eun-bum’s relationship history as the text summarizes each chapter: love, marriage, hatred, and separation.

We then return briefly to the present where Eun-bum is threatened out of Ha-ra’s office — but we cut to moments of laughter in both their present and their past as the captions continue the question of what happiness might be. Turning to the audience, the appearing text screens ask: “Please tell me what true love is, what true breakup is, what true happiness is.”

 

 

As the video comes to a close, the captions introduce our two actors before taking us to the final screen: “I am a divorce lawyer who is divorced.” In voiceover, we then end on Eun-bum asking, “Can We Be Strangers?”

Directed by PD Kim Yang-hee (Our Blues) with scripts by Park Sa-rang, ENA’s Can We Be Strangers premieres on January 18, following Unlock the Boss in the Wednesday-Thursday slot.
