Yoon Bo-mi, better known by the mononym Bomi, has chosen MBC every1’s Please Don’t Meet Him as her next acting project!
On October 9, her agency Play M Entertainment released a statement confirming her casting and said, “We ask for your warm support and expectation for Yoon Bo-mi, who is making a comeback with this new project.”
Please Don’t Meet Him is a romantic-comedy series that will center on Seo Ji-sung (Song Ha-yoon, Devilish Charm), a programmer who works for a smart home appliance development team. Ji-sung wants to be in a relationship but without the danger of constantly falling for the wrong man in the process. One day, she accidentally develops the AI refrigerator Cho Sang-shin, a programmed machine that can identify people with the least likable traits. With her newfound tool, she goes on her high-tech quest for the perfect love life while saving people in difficult relationships. On her search, however, she comes across Jung Kook-hee (Lee Jun-young, Good Casting), a firefighter who doesn’t use social media. With no online presence, he is the one and only person that Cho Sang-shin is unable to analyze.
Yoon will star in the series as Moon Ye-seul, a quarantine employee assigned by the UI designer of the electronic security team. Ye-seul is going through a rough patch in her relationship with someone called the “Gold Sapper,” who falls in love quickly. The idol-actress’ character is expected to inject refreshing moments to the story.
Yoon Bo-mi is best known as one of the members of the South Korean girl group Apink. She first tapped into her acting prowess by playing a cameo role in the first installment of the Reply franchise, Reply 1997 (2012). In the years after, she took on roles in the dramas Because This Is My First Life (2017) and Farming Academy (two seasons, 2019), earning favorable reviews for her strong presence as an actress.
Please Don’t Meet Him (also Please Don’t Meet the Man) is slated to air on MBC and MBC every1 in November.
