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?
