Here's What We Know So Far About Gong Yoo's Comeback Romance K-Drama "Trunk"

trunk-gong-yoo-seo-hyun-jin---nm.jpg

 

Prepare the fanfare: The OG K-drama leading man Gong Yoo is set to make us swoon once more. The Hallyu king is reportedly returning to the romantic screen for Netflix, alongside Another Miss Oh actress Seo Hyun Jin.

Titled Trunk, the upcoming drama marks Gong Yoo’s grand return to the TV romance genre since 2016’s hit Goblin. Before it hits our streaming screens in the near future, here’s what you need to know about the next title on his slate.

The Plot

The K-drama is set to be an adaptation of the novel Trunk by Kim Ryeo Ryeong. The source material narrated the story of a fictional marriage service agency, who plays matchmaker to its clients with their future spouses.   

In an ironic twist, heading its agency is Noh In-ji, a woman who chooses to stay single despite the nature of her job. She crosses paths with Han Jeong-won, a music producer who believes that all marriages are deceit in disguise.

The Cast

Management SOOP confirmed that Hyun Jin and Gong Yoo are “positively considering” the series, where they will be set to portray the roles of Noh In-ji and Hang Jeong-won, respectively.

Formerly the main vocalist of the K-pop group M.I.L.K. before its disbandment in 2003, Hyun Jin has since then become a formidable actress in the Hallyu scene. She gained popularity as a lead in 2016’s Another Miss Oh, and has been a top-billed cast member in dramas such as Dr. Romantic (2016), Temperature of Love (2017), The Beauty Inside (2018), You Are My Spring (2021), and most recently, Why Her (2022).

SOOP labelmates Gong Yoo and Seo Hyun Jin will possibly be the next K-drama couple for Netflix!

On February 20, several industry insiders shared that Gong Yoo and Seo Hyun Jin will lead a new Netflix romance-genre K-drama titled Trunk

Gong Yoo and Seo Hyun Jin's agency Management SOOP responded to the casting reports. The agency confirmed that the two did receive the casting offer. They also revealed that the two are positively considering starring in the upcoming romance K-drama. 

Trunk will base its story on a novel of the same name by Kim Rye Ryeong. The K-drama will revolve around a marriage service agency that sets up clients with a married life with a desired partner. 

The upcoming K-drama will be directed by Kim Kyu Tae (Our Blues, Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, and That Winter, the Wind Blows) and written by Park Eun Young (Hwarang).

In the upcoming series, Gong Yoo received the offer to play the role of a music producer. Meanwhile, Seo Hyun Jin got the offer to play the role of an employee of the marriage agency. Both of them think of marriage negatively. 

There are no official details yet on the premiere of the upcoming K-drama as well as the supporting actors that will possibly join Gong Yoo and Seo Hyun Jin.

If Gong Yoo decided to accept the offer, this will be his second K-drama under Netflix. His last drama The Silent Sea was also a Netflix original. This will also be his return to the romance genre after seven years. The top actor is also set to make a special appearance  in the upcoming movie Wonderland led by Miss A's Bae Suzy, Park Bo Gum, Choi Woo Shik, and Jung Yu Mi

Meanwhile, if Seo Hyun Jin confirms her casting, this will be her first project for 2023. The actress was last seen in the SBS K-drama Why Her? with Hwang In Youp, Heo Joon Ho, Bae In Hyuk, Jo Young Jin, and Kim Sun Hyuk. She also led the 2022 film Cassiopeia

Gong Yoo, Seo Hyun Jin, and a melodrama? This will work no matter what.

If I only look at the plot of Trunk, I’m not very eager to watch it.
But because it’s Gong Yoo x Seo Hyun Jin, I’m so fricking excited…
Even if the movie is trash, with this combo and their chemistry, it could work.

— @egeiid

 

Gong Yoo and Seo Hyun Jin is finally coming true… It’s no longer just us being delusional

Five years after the Baeksang Arts Awards, this is finally happening

The Silent Sea star Gong Yoo is set to lead Netflix’s upcoming original series The Trunk.
 
Today (July 17), Netflix announced that the Gong Yoo has been cast as the lead of its new original series The Trunk. The actor will be joined by Seo Hyun-jin, who previously led popular K-dramas like The Beauty Inside and Why Her.
According to Netflix, The Trunk will be a mystery series about the unexpected events that unfold after a strange trunk is found in a lake. Gong will star as Jeong-won, a reclusive music producer who winds up in a contractual marriage with In-ji (played by Seo). Meanwhile, In-ji is an employee of a matchmaking organisation, which Jeong-won’s ex-wife Seo-yeon arranges for him to find a “second wife”.
The upcoming series will be directed by Kim Gyu-tae, who directed the 2022 hit drama Our Blues. The Trunk is also written by Hwarang: The Poet Warrior Youth screenwriter Park Eun-young. At the time of publishing, Netflix has not shared a projected premiere date for the exclusive series.

Last month, Netflix co-CEO Ted Sarandos spoke at a public forum on the future of Korean content, sharing why the company has committed to increase its investment in new South Korean series and films.

“[Korean content] is very often unpredictable and catches the American audience by surprise,” Sarandos said. “I think what’s brilliant is to see film, unscripted and series all grow according to the interests of our Korean audience.”

I like very much both actors and I am so glad we`ll have a mature romance drama for once. While I like the mystery genre, I wish there is not a mystery drama, I want just romace. Why I worry about the part in the synopsis "they discover a mysterious trunk by the lakeside"? It is a corpse?  But it is alright. I am looking forward to this drama.

Seo Hyun-jin’s fifth husband is Gong Yoo in new romance Trunk

by tccolb

SeoHyunJin_GongYoo-1536x1023.png

 

Netflix confirmed the very exciting news that Seo Hyun-jin (Why Her) and Gong Yoo (The Silent Sea) will be headlining their new romance Trunk. Adapted from a novel by the same title, the original is written by the acclaimed author Kim Ryeo-ryung, who is particularly well known for her early works – Punch and Thread of Lies – that were later made into films.

I initially thought the title was referring to a car trunk, but it sounds like we’re dealing with some kind of luggage trunk that is one day discovered by a lake. Said trunk then becomes our story’s catalyst, unraveling the secrets behind our main pair’s strange marriage as well as the covert operations of the NM company.

 

This company is where our heroine In-ji (Seo Hyun-jin) is employed. As a premium match-making service, they specialize in finding your perfect soulmate, with just a tiny amendment to the traditional wedding vows. Life is short as it is, so why wait until death do us part when you can sign a one-year contract instead. In-ji, for instance, has already ticked off four marriages on her list of life’s milestones and is now on number five with Jung-won (Gong Yoo).

With any new relationship, though, it takes time to get comfortable with each other and music producer Jung-won has his own emotional baggage to deal with as well. Owing to tragedies in his past, our hero struggles with anxiety and loneliness – in addition to still missing his former wife Seo-yeon. Ironically, Seo-yeon was the one who signed him up with NM, which is where Jung-won first meets In-ji.

Still in the planning stages, Netflix’s Trunk will be directed by PD Kim Kyu-tae (Our Blues, Live) with scripts penned by Park Eun-young (Hwarang).
