Korean sensation Hwang Jung Eum is making her grand return to television with a leading role on MBC’s brand new romantic comedy, Lucky Romance, alongside the talented Ryu Joon Yeol on Oh!K this June!
K-drama ‘Lucky Romance’ is originally a webtoon of the same name. It is a love story about two individuals trying to look beyond their differing outlooks on life, while proving that destiny is not always predetermined. This series follows the life of Shim Bo Nui (Hwang Jung Eum), an attractive woman who, while holding a positive outlook in life, is also plagued with a blind faith in superstitions and fortune-telling. In fact, she is willing to do whatever it takes to avoid any misfortune.
As bad luck would have it, she was told that she would face a grave misfortune unless she found a man with a tiger zodiac sign, and have one-night stand with him! The only suitable candidate? Her detestable boss, Je Soo Ho (Ryu Joon Yeol), a nerdy CEO of a game developer company. While seen to be completely incompatible on the surface, the story sees them open up to each other. Will they be able to resolve their animosity before Bo Nui does the unthinkable?
The drama also stars Lee Soo Hyuk as a famous tennis star who is Bo Nui’s acquaintance from her younger days and Lee Chung Ah as the tennis star’s manager.
