Seo Kang Joon is coming back to the small screen in The Third Charm and I am RIDICULOUSLY happy. He more than proved his acting range in Are You Human Too? and I’m ready to see what else he can do as a more standard romantic lead. Add in Lee Som (Because This is My First Life) and I think we have a solid romance on our hands.
According to my sources, The Third Charm is a love story between buttoned-up Joon Young and free-spirited Young Jae, who meet on a blind date at 20 and crash into each other again and again over the next 12 years. I can see where their polar opposite personalities would make it hard for them to stay together, and maturity would make it more possible. The question: Is this a story worth watching?
I’m in it just to see if that nerdy soul at the beginning is really Seo Kang Joon! I have a hard time seeing it.
What do you think, drama fans? Are you tempted by The Third Charm? It starts on September 28th over on JTBC.
Until then, I remain–
