[Orion's Daily Ramblings] Kim So-hyun and Her Merry Men Confirm Netflix's "Love Alarm"

2018/12/24 | 1056 views | Permalink

One of the many Korean drama Netflix exclusives, "Love Alarm", has been chugging along in production, and we have confirmations for the heroine, and all the men after her heart. Kim So-hyun will be taking the lead, joined by Song Kang, Jung Ga-ram, and Shin Seung-ho.

"Love Alarm" is an 8-part story about living in a society where an app by an unknown developer lets the user know when someone who likes them is within a 10-meter radius, and about the people who still want to know the true feelings of themselves and others despite it. The series will premiere in 2019.

Kim So-hyun plays Kim Jo-jo, a young woman who is bright and happy, despite her family's painful history, and who has fallen in love anew since the app launched. Song Kang plays Hwang Seon-oh, a man with everything, including model looks and a rich family. As you may have guessed, he likes Jo-jo.

Jung Ga-ram's Lee Hye-yeong, who has been Seon-oh's friend for 12 years, is someone who has actually liked Jo-jo since before his friend did, so things will surely get complicated. Think this is enough men for one gal to handle? No, says this reverse harem. Shin Seung-ho plays Il-sik, a vibrant judo student who also likes Jo-jo.

I'm not sure how to feel about "Love Alarm" yet. Writers Lee Ah-yeon and Seo Bo-ra have made the currently airing "Coffee, Do Me a Favor", which I haven't checked out. Whether I trust them with romance and women's stories depends on how they do with this one, which looks worryingly fat-phobic. I hope that they, and PD Lee Na-jeong of "Oh My Venus" and "Fight My Way" can deliver.
