Lee Yeon-hee (29)
and Yeo Jin-goo (19)
have signed on for a new supernatural rom-com that’s in the works at SBS called Reunited Worlds. They’ll be paired in an odd relationship: They are childhood friends born in the same year who have somehow aged differently so that now she’s a 31-year-old woman and he’s still a 18-year-old boy.
There are conflicting reports about the role Lee Yeon-hee has received. According to one source, she could be a bright, simple-is-best-type of gal who loves being active. As a tomboy whose dream was to become a manga artist, she wanted to go to art school, but real life got in the way, and she ended up graduating college with a nursing degree. Due to her father’s bankruptcy, she ends up having to become the personal live-in caretaker of a rich woman with a rare terminal illness.
There are other reports that describe her character as a 31-year-old woman who works at a restaurant, although the rest of the premise is the same. Descriptions on Yeo Jin-goo’s character are much more vague: He’s supposed to play an innocent youth with a pure-hearted honesty about him.
Written by Lee Hee-myung and directed by PD Baek Soo-chan, whose partnership created Girl Who Sees Smells and Beautiful Gong Shim, Wednesday-Thursday drama Reunited Worlds will begin this July, after the end of Suspicious Partner.Sources: @kdrama_news | Dramabeans
/IS PlusNews about this came out last week but now casting is confirmed. I liked both of the writer and PD's previous dramas, but I'm really not here for this storyline and I hate the huge age gaps we've been getting in dramaland.
