“Melo Is My Nature” is JTBC’s new Friday-Saturday comedy drama that addresses the concerns, romances, and daily lives of three women in their 30s as they end up living under the same roof. “Melo Is My Nature” is directed by director Lee Byung Hun, who is known for producing films “Twenty” and “Extreme Job.” It will be airing starting in July.
Chun Woo Hee will take on the role of Im Jin Joo, a geeky scriptwriter. While she appears normal on the outside, everything she does is always a bit off from being normal. Jeon Yeo Bin will play the role of Lee Eun Jeong. She followed her childhood dream to become a documentary producer and joins one of the most prominent documentary production companies in the field. However, she quits to start her own company because she cannot stand the sexual harassment from her boss. Lastly, Han Ji Eun will play Hwang Han Joo, a marketing director at a drama production company. She gave birth before marriage with a guy who eventually leaves her to pursue his dream of becoming a comedian. Afterwards, Hwang Han Joo endlessly struggles to balance her work and trying to take care of her baby.
Gong Myung will be playing the role of Chu Jae Hoon, a younger co-worker of Hwang Han Joo, a marketing director at a drama production company. Chu Jae Hoon, who is stuck in a bad relationship when he meets the warm and kind Hwang Han Joo, finds himself confused and distraught after seeing the differences between his colleague and his girlfriend. Meanwhile, Ahn Jae Hong will be playing the role of Son Bum Soo, an extremely successful drama producing director (PD) whose passion for dramas has waned and who has lost interest in his own work. After stumbling upon the clumsy, inexperienced writing of Im Jin Joo, Son Bum Soo becomes reinvigorated and intrigued by her work. However, after meeting the writer in person, he ends up coming to the conclusion that she is a strange, peculiar woman.

When this drama was first announced it was billed as a female version of "Twenty", which I really enjoyed. JTBC has done well with women-centered dramas in the past and I'm really looking forward to this!
