Details of the fantasy romantic comedy are sketchy, but the last name to come up in connection with "Chicago Typewriter" was Park Shin-hye, when rumours surfaced that she had been offered the lead role in mid-December. Her management was quick to deny it, but given that tvN has been putting its prestige projects into the Friday-Saturday time slot, it may not have been such a far-fetched story. The last show to air on the network in that time slot was ratings monster, "Goblin", starring Gong Yoo and Kim Go-eun.
"Chicago Typewriter" will be written by Jin Soo-wan, of "Kill Me, Heal Me" and "The Sun and the Moon". The plot seems a bit bonkers but fun, featuring writers from the 1930s who are reincarnated in the present as a best-selling writer in a slump, an anti-fan, and a ghostwriter. Yoo Ah-in's profile has been rising steadily in the past couple of years, and having a hit drama with Park Shin-hye certainly won't hurt as he leaves for his army service. Yoo Ah-in's last drama was 2015's "Six Flying Dragons", and it's been a while since he's been in a romantic comedy on tv, so if he confirms, it'll give me another excuse not to go out on Friday and Saturday nights.
