Lee Sang-yub, Kim So-eun as husband-wife in You’re Closer Than I Think
Lee Sang-yub (This Week, My Wife Will Have an Affair) and Kim So-eun (Our Gap-soon) will be collaborating on a new KBS drama special called You’re Closer Than I Think. It’s a mystery melodrama special about a bride who goes by herself to her honeymoon, leaving behind only one simple text message on the day of her wedding.
Kim So-eun has confirmed that she’ll be playing the runaway bride, and hot on her heels will be her husband who’ll learn more about this strange mystery around her as he chases her. Lee Sang-yub’s character, who I’m presuming will be the husband, is the owner of a used bookstore and a part-time independent radio DJ.
You’re Closer Than I Think will be a reunion project between PD Choi Yoon-seok and Lee Sang-yub, who have worked together before in Home Sweet Home, which was a drama special about a cyborg and his wife with the highest viewer ratings in 2016. I think both Lee Sang-yub and Kim So-eun both give off a similar cute playful vibe, and hopefully it could lead to a nice bickering chemistry between them. However, from the synopsis, it looks the mystery aspect could lead to a drama special darker in tone, but maybe the ending will still be a happily-ever-after?
KBS drama special You’re Closer Than I Think will have 10 episodes and is slated to air sometime this September.
