Actor Lee Jonghyuk and Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung will be working together in a drama. They were chosen as the lead roles in the upcoming tvN Monday/Tuesday drama, “Dating Agency: Cyrano”, and will be showing an unprecedented acting transformation.
“Dating Agency: Cyrano” is a 16-episode drama based off of the webtoon, “Cyrano Agency”, and is a prequel to the original “Cyrano: Dating Agency” movie starring Uhm Taewoong and Lee Minjung. Centered around a “Dating Agency” that helps people who are clumsy when it comes to dating by making love come true for them, the drama will unravel stories of love and dating in a pleasant, polished manner.
The role of the leader of the “Dating Agency”, Seo Byunghoon, will be taken over by Lee Jonghyuk. Though he’s haughty and ill-tempered, he shows signs of a genius in the theatrical world and is a famous director. After being guilt-ridden since losing his friend through an unexpected accident, this character decides to save his friend’s theater company and begins the uncommon “Dating Agency” business.
Lee Jonghyuk, who has been showing off a polished, yet friendly image through the drama, “A Gentleman’s Dignity”, and variety show, “Dad! Where Are You Going?”, is determined to show a transformation in his acting and will show off charms he hasn’t before.
The loveable main female character of Gong Minyoung will be played by Girls’ Generation’s Sooyoung. After being acknowledged for her potential as an actress through the drama, “The Third Hospital”, she will be acting as a couple with Byunghoon (Lee Jonghyuk), who she always collides with. Sooyoung will be transforming into the agency’s beautiful member, becoming a helper for people in love.
The role of Cha Seungpyo, who mysteriously gets tangled up with Lee Jonghyuk and Sooyoung’s characters, will be played by Lee Chunhee. He will be a mysterious guy who hides his past and will appear as a charming chef who runs a small restaurant in the building next to the theater where the dating agency is. Lee Chunhee will rid himself of his usual image and will be showing off a new character with mysterious charms.
The PD of “Dating Agency: Cyrano”, Kang Heejun, stated, “We are planning on upgrading the original work’s ideas, add an angle, and we will show off a romantic comedy people will want to watch the most this spring. All the actors are inspired to show new, different acting. You can look forward to it.”
Filming for “Dating Agency: Cyrano” will start sometime in the middle of this month, and the first episode is scheduled to air near the end of May, following the end of the Monday/Tuesday tvN drama, “Nine”.
