This doesn’t seem like it’s part of the flower boy series even though I think it’s supposed to be, but tvN’s Dating Agency: Cyrano is gearing up for a premiere soon on May 27 and from the looks of it, it’s probably going on my to-watch list. The cast doesn’t excite me at all since I’ve never seen the leads in anything though I know Lee Jong Hyuk (A Gentleman’s Dignity) is pretty well-liked from those who’ve watched him and as for Sooyoung… I don’t know. Apparently her acting is the most promising out of all the SNSD members who’ve ventured into acting but I’ll believe it when I see it.
Even though I really like Uhm Tae Woong, Lee Min Jung, Park Shin Hye and Daniel Choi, the movie version (of which the series will be an adaptation of) bored me to tears with few actual laugh out loud moments and an unengaging plot. The dating agency premise has so much potential though so it’s disappointing that the movie was a dud. With 16 episodes, I’m really hoping that they’ll change it up and judging from the character descriptions, it does sound quite different which makes me quite excited.
Since Sooyoung was supposed to play Park Shin Hye’s character, I was surprised to learn that they’ve bumped her up to leading lady status, which really does indicate that they’re gonna do this adaptation differently. And how cute is it that Jo Yoon Woo (Flower Boy Ramen Shop) will play a theater geek who designs the costumes for the dating agency?
For those who don’t know, these characters are part of a dating agency and as for what they do… I guess you can say it’s kinda similar to the movie Hitch actually. They’ll contruct elaborate scenarios (sometimes going undercover and playing different characters) that’ll allow the guy/girl to have opportunities to meet and talk to their crush, as well as dole out advice based on what they’ve uncovered from all their investigations. I’m really hoping this drama will be more fun!
