Seo Hyun-jin and Yang Se-jong have been confirmed as the leading cast in the upcoming SBS drama, Temperature of Love. The actress and actor will be reuniting in a drama after about 6 months since they last worked together in Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim as the female lead and second male lead, respectively.
Temperature of Love is a drama from writer Ha Myung-hee of last year’s Doctors. Based on her novel entitled Nice Soup Does Not Answer the Phone, the new series will tell the love story of a screenwriter and chef who get to know each other for the first time online. Seo Hyun-jin is back with a new drama after playing the lead roles in the hit 2016 shows, Oh Hae Young Again and Romantic Doctor Teacher Kim. This time she will be playing the screenwriter, named Lee Yeon-soo, who has spent 10 years of her career life as an assistant screenwriter before finally getting the chance to have her own screenplay transformed into a series. She is a graduate of a prestigious university and is described as a woman with intelligence and honesty. Despite this, she finds no luck in her love life as she holds a particularly different belief when it comes to love and dismisses the idea of love at first sight.
Yang Se-jong, who has shown an outstanding performance playing three different characters in OCN’s clone-thriller Duel, will take on the role of Ohn Jung-seon, a chef at a Michelin-starred restaurant who studied culinary arts at Le Cordon Bleu, a prestigious culinary and hospitality school in France. He is the kind of man who relies on his instincts rather than on rational thought and he has also his own ways of dealing with romantic relationships, believing that love should be a product of mutual interests between two people.
Meanwhile, Kim Jae-wook (Voice) has been also confirmed to play the second male lead, an entertainment agency CEO who opens up a restaurant with Ohn Jeon-seong. The second female lead is currently being reviewed by Jo Bo-ah (Sweet Stranger and Me). She is up to play Lee Yoen-soo’s rival in her career and Ohn Jeon-seong’s heart.
Temperature of Love will be directed by PD Nam Gun of The Royal Gambler. The drama will follow Falsify in September and will be produced by Pan Entertainment, the production company behind hit dramas such as Doctors, Fight For My Way, Kill Me Heal Me, and Moon Embracing the Sun.
