Star-studded duo Hwang Jung Eum and Ryu Joon Yeol play leads on ‘Lucky Romance'

Korean sensation Hwang Jung Eum is making her grand return to television with a leading role on MBC’s brand new romantic comedy, Lucky Romance. Starring alongside the talented Ryu Joon Yeol, this series is set to air on Oh!K (Astro Channel 394) the same day as Korea, every Thursday and Friday at 8.55pm.

Lucky Romance, originally a webtoon of the same name is a love story about two individuals trying to look beyond their differing outlooks on life. Proving that destiny is not always predetermined, this series follows the life of Shim Bo Nui (Hwang Jung Eum), an attractive woman who, while holding a positive outlook in life, is also plagued with a blind faith in superstitions and fortune-telling. In fact, she is willing to do whatever it takes to avoid any misfortune.

As bad luck would have it, she was told that she would face a grave misfortune unless she found a man with a tiger zodiac sign, and had one-night stand with him! The only suitable candidate? Her detestable boss, Je Soo Ho (Ryu Joon Yeol), a nerdy CEO of a game developer company. While seen to be completely incompatible on the surface, the story sees them open up to each other. Will they be able to resolve their animosity before Bo Nui does the unthinkable?

The star-studded duo are recognized for their roles in some of Korea’s popular dramas. Hwang Jung Eum played the lead character in many acclaimed TV series including Kill Me, Heal Me (2015), Endless Love (2014) and She Was Pretty (2015). Earlier this year, she took home the ‘Top Excellence Award for Best Actress in a Mini Series’ at the 2015 MBC Drama Awards for her role in She Was Pretty. As for Ryu Joon Yeol, he kick-started his career as an actor in Socialphobia (2015) and took home numerous rising star awards for it. He had his big TV break when he starred in a few notable series including Reply 1988 (2015) and The Producers (2015).

Be sure to catch the sizzling chemistry between both stars in Lucky Romance on Oh!K (Astro Channel 394). New episodes air every Thursday and Friday at 8.55pm. This series is available in English, Simplified Chinese and Bahasa Malaysia subtitles.
