I found Ahn Hyo Seop absolutely adorable in his supporting role in 2018 drama Still 17 (aka Thirty But Seventeen). He has since starred in leading roles in shows like Abyss and Dr. Romantic 2 but I haven’t seen both so I’m not sure how he performed as the main lead. He has confirmed his next drama role in SBS romantic comedy Office Blind Date. In addition to this, he will be appearing in a historical role in upcoming drama Red Sky along with Kim Yoo Jung.
Office Blind Date is based on a web novel and sounds really cute. It is about a woman who goes on a blind date in place of her friend in order to get rejected. Turns out, the man she meets is the CEO of the company she works for. Ahn Hyo Seop has been signed on to play the CEO and Kpop group Gugudan’s Kim Se Jeong has been offered the female lead role.
The plot about mistaken identity on a blind date sounds like something I’ve seen before but I can’t really recall right now. Well, it’s nothing new but still the addition of the blind date being her boss does make things interesting.
Office Blind Date has writers where one of them penned Rude Miss Young Ae series and the other penned dramas like Standby and High Kick 3. The show is slated to air in early 2022.
