Korean starlet Park Shin-hye is paring up with “Bread, Love and Dreams” star Yoon Si-yoon in a new romantic comedy drama.
The two stars have been cast as main characters in tvN’s upcoming Monday and Tuesday series, “Flower Boys Next Door” [tentative title] by director Jung Jeong-hwa of “Cool Guys, Hot Ramen,” the broadcaster said in a press release Wednesday.
Following “Cool Guys, Hot Ramen” (2011) and “Shut Up and Let’s Go” (2012), the third installation of the channel’s pretty boy series is a 16-part romantic comedy drama penned by scriptwriter Kim Eun-jung of “The Contact” (1997) and “A Love Story” (2001).
Based on a popular webtoon which wrapped up its 54 episodes on portal Daum last July, the story goes around contemporary Rapunzel Go Dok-mi [played by Park], who locks up herself in her comfort zone with personal scars.
She got caught by a pretty boy Enrique Keum[played by Yoon] next door while she was peeking at him and their weird relationship which later brings Go out of her lonely castle begins.
Korean cable channel tvN’s first 2013 drama is slated to crank in mid-November and kick off its air on January 7 at 11 p.m. the local time next year.
