Jang Na Ra And Son Ho Joon Are Time Traveling Lovers In New Fantasy Rom-Com “Go Back Couple”
Go Back Couple is KBS way of marking its territory as the home of time-travel dramas for 2017.
Go Back Couple is up for a perky rom-com ride for KBS’s newest drama offering.
On the brink of a possible divorce, a couple of 18 years warp through time, landing back to their college selves when they first fell in love.
Having experienced what happened to them after the honeymoon phase of their young love, the couple would have another chance to either undo the fated love, or find back the inspiration of what made them love each other when they were young.
Sweet, nostalgic and retrospective.
Go Back Couple is the kind of romantic story that would fit in the young, and young at heart audience. Jang Na Ra (I Remember You, Fated To Love You) is not one of my favorites, but I strangely watched almost all of her projects. She is known to play predictable lead girl roles but yet she made all the characters distinct and memorable.
Jang Na Ra seemingly has this innate ability to bring out the flavor of a love story, no matter how common the plot can be. She has blended well with her lead men in the past, so the newly elevated lead man Son Ho Joon (Blow Breeze) will surely have no problem making this new drama work.
Teasers have revealed the 90’s setup for the college friends. So far, it is brimming with a zesty retro vibe. The cast are powered by reliable supporting actors Heo Jung Min (Introverted Boss), Jo Hye Jung (Weightlifting Fairy), Lee Yi Kyung (Mirror of the Witch) and Han Bo Reum (Let’s Fight Ghost).
Go Back Couple will join the already jam-packed autumn romance drama lineup. It is scheduled to premiere on KBS’s Friday-Saturday from this October 13.
