Yoon Kyun Sang is the lead male star to replace Ahn Hyo Seop in the upcoming JTBC drama Drama “Clean with Passion for Now.”
Previously it has been revealed that Kim Yoo Jung has gotten better and will be ready to start filming for her upcoming drama. The production team behind the drama halted the shooting following her sudden surgery.
Unfortunately, due to Ahn Hyo Seop accepting an offer in another drama he had to step down due to scheduling conflict. Yoon Kyun Sang was previously in talks to lead the drama, he has finally accepted the offer.
He will play the role of Jang Sun Kyul, the CEO of a large cleaning company who is obsessed with cleanliness. The character believes that his purpose in life is to clean. He is good looking and wealthy and has the brains but has severe mysophobia (a pathological fear of contamination and germs).
He meets Gil Oh Sol (Kim Yoo Jung), who prioritizes survival over cleanliness; she turns his world upside down.
The drama is set to premiere in November.
What do you think of the casting choice?
Okay, call me an annoying person already! God! I hate the casting choice.
Don’t get me wrong, Yoon Kyun Sang is an amazing actor and I love him, and he’s taking on a role of someone who’s probably his age but Kim Yoo Jung is too young, too damn young for him.
I know, I know! You’ll say watch before you judge, but they went from casting someone who was born in 1996 (Ahn Hyo Seop ) to someone who was born in 1987….
Couldn’t they find someone who was Kim Yoo Jung’s age? I mean she looks so youthful while he looks so old, one of the very few Korean actors who actually look older than their actual age, he is 31 years old but I could’ve easily guessed he was 35 or 36.
I was excited about the drama. Now I am not! I just can’t picture them together, my problem is that Yoo Jung is 18 years old, I have trouble picturing her with someone who can be easily confused to be her dad or uncle!
