Yoo Seung-ho cast in Korean adaptation of Proposal Daisakusen
Yoo Seung-ho is heading to cable for his next project, a drama titled Operation Proposal, to air on channel TV Chosun.
It’s based on the 2007 Japanese drama Proposal Daisakusen starring Yamapi and Nagasawa Masami, and the role ought to give Yoo a chance to dial back the villainous route he took in Warrior Baek Dong-soo in favor of a gentler role. He plays a man who realizes that he’s in love with his longtime friend… at her wedding ceremony. Well, that’s awkward. Thankfully, he’s given a second chance to win his love by traveling back in time.
The series is described as a fantasy melodrama, and Yoo said, “I found the topic of time travel fresh, and the way he works hard to protect his first love is memorable.” It sounds like a whimsical heart-tugger, and I’m all for both of those things (and for Yoo), so bring it on, I say.
Writing the series is Yoon Ji-ryun of two prior school-set series, Sharp and Boys Before Flowers. Directing is PD Kim Woo-sun of daily dramas Can’t Stop and the recently wrapped You Are Quite Beautiful.
The drama will begin filming later this month, and plans for a February broadcast.
