Ahn Jae-hyun and Oh Yeon-seo have been confirmed on Monday to headline an upcoming romantic comedy called People With Flaws.
The said series will be broadcast on MBC from November as a Wednesday-Thursday drama. It tells the story of individuals who strive to overcome the prejudice against “people with flaws,” centering on a woman who dislikes handsome men, and a man who is obsessed with his looks.
Ahn Jae-hyun will play Lee Kang-woo, a man who becomes obsessed with his physical appearance after having been dumped before for being “ugly.” People With Flaws will become Ahn’s second drama in which he is the lead actor, following Blood in 2015. He most recently appeared in The Beauty Inside as a close friend of the female lead character played by Seo Hyun-jin.
Meanwhile, Oh Yeon-seo will portray the role of Joo Seo-yeon, a high school track coach who believes that a guy who is not good looking is a boyfriend material. Oh Yeon-seo was last seen playing the lead role in the fantasy romantic comedy A Korean Odyssey opposite Lee Seung-gi.
People With Flaws will be directed by Oh Jin-seok, the PD of My First First Love, My Sassy Girl, and Yong-pal. It will premiere in the latter half of the year, following the conclusion of the upcoming webtoon-based drama July Found By Chance in which SF9’s Rowoon and Kim Hye-yoon are in talks to star.
