Kim So-eun, Ji Hyun-woo confirmed to lead new drama ‘Love Is Annoying, but I Hate Being Lonely’

Actors Kim So-eun and Ji Hyun-woo are confirmed to headline the upcoming MBC every1 original drama Love Is Annoying, but I Hate Being Lonely (literal title).

Love Is Annoying, but I Hate Being Lonely is a modern romance story that depicts the stark truth of how romantic relationships are perceived by today’s youth. It centers on two young people residing in a shared house who both want to date but do not like being burdened by relationship commitments. However, they are faced with the dilemma that their freedom could mean spending the rest of their lives feeling lonely.

Kim So-eun takes on the character Lee Na-eun, a freelance copy editor who aspires to become a novelist. She has a generous heart and does not tolerate injustice. Because Na-eun avoids getting romantically tied up with anyone, she has not had a boyfriend in four years. Her feelings are challenged, however, when she stays in a co-living space. Kim has been adored by fans for her remarkable portrayals on every drama that she takes part in such as Our Gab-soon (2016–2017) and That Man Oh Soo (2018), to name a few.

Meanwhile, Ji Hyun-woo, who is known for his lead roles in the drama Risky Romance (2018) and Love in Sadness (2019), suits up as Doctor Cha Kang-woo, a psychiatrist who tends to get curious about people. He remains single in his 30s due to a traumatizing past that scares him away from forming an intimate connection with a woman. All these are threatened to change though when he finds it difficult to control his growing emotions for his housemate, Na-eun.

The two vivid characters are expected to captivate the reality of relationships among people of ages 20 to 30.

Penning the script for the series is writer Jo Jin-kuk, whose works include Fated to Love You (2014), while leading the production is PD Lee Hyun-joo of the drama Imaginary Cat (2015–2016). Love Is Annoying, but I Hate Being Lonely targets to broadcast in the second half of the year.
