In “Unexpected Country Diary,” Chu Young Woo is a city spirit trapped in the countryside.
Kakao TV’s new drama “Unexpected Country Diary,” based on Park Ha Min’s web novel of the same name, will highlight the pleasures and tragedies of the innocent and sympathetic inhabitants of Heedong Village.
The drama will also feature a growing romance between Ahn Ja Young, the village’s sweetheart, played by Red Velvet’s Joy, and Han Ji Yool, a veterinarian from Seoul who can’t wait to get out of the village. Chu Young Woo will play this metropolitan soul, a man with a prickly demeanor who does everything by the book.
“Chu Young Woo is doing a terrific job of grabbing the lead with his superb performance that is unexpected from a rookie actor,” the production team said. Despite trying to acclimate to rural life and fantasizing about returning to Seoul, he will gradually fall in love with Heedong Village without recognizing it. As he describes this procedure, he will share the romance that a rural existence has to offer with the spectators. Please keep it in mind.”
The first episode of “Unexpected Country Diary,” a mid-form drama featuring 12 episodes of around 30 minutes each, will debut on September 5.
