My First First Love is a college romance drama which lead actor Ji Soo described as "the young and, sometimes, rather clumsy love in your 20s." Even though the drama focuses on young love, Ji Soo shared that the show reaches out to older generations as well.

Ji Soo on his character: "My character is a free spirit but with a warm heart." (Ji Soo also said he totally relates to his new role because they're both very humorous!)

Jung Jin Young on his character: "He's not very skilled at first loves, but chases his dreams."

Love Alarm

Starring: Kim So Hyun

Love Alarm is based on one of the most popular webtoons in Korea and is a modern romance drama with sci-fi elements. The drama features a mobile app that detects people with romantic feelings for you within a certain proximity. Lead actress Kim So Hyun shared that although having this technology does have its perks, face-to-face communication still trumps any app.
