Actors Kim So-eun and Ji Hyun-woo pair up in the new MBC every1 original drama tentatively titled Love is Tiresome but I Don’t Want to Be Lonely, a source from the network revealed on April 29.
Love is Tiresome but I Don’t Want to Be Lonely will reflect the stark truth of how the modern youth perceives romantic relationships. The series centers around the lives of two young people who are struck by love but do not want to be tied up in a serious commitment. They begin to realize, as they gather in a co-living house, that they both enjoy being free but, at the same time, are afraid of getting lonely.
Kim So-eun (That Man Oh Soo) will take on the role of Lee Na-eun, a freelance copy editor who aspires of becoming a novelist. She only becomes happy during paydays or when she daydreams of getting her work awarded as the “book of the month.” That is until she shares a space with Cha Kang-woo, played by Ji Hyun-woo (Love in Sadness), a psychiatrist who tends to get curious about people. He is scared of going into a relationship due to a traumatizing past but finds it difficult to control his emotions when it comes to Na-eun.
The two vivid characters are expected to captivate the reality of relationships among people of ages 20 to 30.
Love is Tiresome but I Don’t Want to Be Lonely will be helmed by PD Lee Hyun-joo of Imaginary Cat (2015-2016) and penned by Jo Jin-kuk of Fated to Love You (2014).
