Jang Hyuk, Jung Ryeo Won & 2PM Junho Confirm New SBS Drama “Wok Of Love”
Yes, you heard it right! It’s going to be a star-powered ensemble for upcoming TV series, Wok of Love.
Wok of Love (aka Greasy Melo) whirls the story of a star chef who reaches rock bottom, leading him to work in a neighborhood Chinese restaurant.
If you love dramas Jealousy Incarnate, Miss Korea and Pasta, the chances are that you will save the date for the new project of Writer Seo. Her clever writing usually mixes perky storytelling that highlights the comic and emotional sides of characters evenly. She also has a knack on sketching strong heroines.
Hence, with her working with actress Jung Ryeo Won who was amazing in her last drama Witch’s Court, this latest drama is to be much anticipated by K-drama fans. The latter is set to play the role of an heiress who loves fencing and horseback riding. She also loves jajangmyun on the side which leads her connection to the characters of the story.
PD Park who worked on last year’s Suspicious Partner will direct the series. The eat-pray-love concept is something which actor Jang Hyuk (Money Flower) looks forward to. He will suit up the role of a gangster money lender who runs the Chinese restaurant.
“The casting seems to be good, and it looks like a fun project. I will study and prepare hard to please the viewers”, Jang said.
Lee Jun Ho, who recently wrapped up the melodrama Just Between Lovers, appears to be taking the central character as a once popular chef. The 2PM member has also been busy with his acting career and music ventures.
Wok of Love is slated for May 7 airing, replacing Should We Kiss First.
