“Romance is a Bonus Book” is a new romantic comedy starring Lee Na Young as Kang Dani, a former copywriter who once enjoyed a flourishing career but who is now down on her luck and struggling to find work. Lee Jong Suk will play the role of Cha Eun Ho, a brilliant and famous writer who is also the editor-in-chief of the publishing company where Kang Dani finally manages to find a job.
On January 10, the drama released new stills of its leads Kang Dani and Cha Eun Ho from both the past and the present.

Finally, a third photo shows the two leads reunited in the present, with the chemistry between them still palpable as they gaze affectionately into each other’s eyes.
