ENA’s new rom-com drama “Love is for Suckers” will be taking viewers on a rollercoaster ride of emotion!
“Love is for Suckers” is a romantic comedy starring Lee Da Hee and Super Junior’s Choi Siwon as two best friends who have known each other for 20 years. When they meet as the producing director (PD) and a cast member of a reality dating show, they unexpectedly begin to develop romantic feelings for one another.
Lee Da Hee stars in the drama as Goo Yeo Reum, a variety show PD in the 10th year of her career. Despite her hard work, all the programs she gets involved with wind up being unsuccessful. Meanwhile, Choi Siwon plays Park Jae Hoon, a plastic surgeon lacking passion in both his work and love life, who ends up appearing on Goo Yeo Reum’s new dating show “Kingdom of Love” as a contestant.
“Love is for Suckers” has shared a sneak peek of the two best friends’ dynamic through new photos from the drama. In one set of pictures, Goo Yeo Reum and Park Jae Hoon enjoy a small birthday party for two under the moonlight. After seeing Goo Yeo Reum’s gloomy face, Park Jae Hoon tries to cheer her up by acting cute and doing funny dances to make her smile.
However, in other stills, the mood changes drastically when the strong and independent Goo Yeo Reum is noticeably feeling down on her way home.
Upon seeing her best friend, Yoo Geo Reum lets her feelings out and cries in front of Park Jae Hoon, while the latter looks worried and surprised.
The drama’s production team commented, “Both Lee Da Hee and Choi Siwon perfectly portray the subtle situation in which two individuals keep their distance to remain just friends as their feelings towards each other begin to change. Please keep an eye on the two of them as their chemistry shines brighter with each and every shoot.”
“Love is for Suckers” premieres October 5 and is available on Viki.
