Netizens Raise Expectations for Nam Joo Hyuk and Song Kang’s Upcoming Dramas Says “Will they be able to escape the humiliation of their previous work?”

Will actors Nam Joo Hyuk and Song Kang, who will appear in the small screen with their new Saturday drama, be able to escape the humiliation of their previous work?

JTBC and tvN will showcase “Forecasting Love and Weather” and “Twenty-Five, Twenty-One“, respectively, on February 12. The “Forecasting Love and Weather” featured Park Min Young and Song Kang, and Kim Tae Ri and Nam Joo Hyuk in “Twenty-Five, Twenty-One“.

Expectations are also high as both Nam Joo Hyuk and Song Kang are captivating many women’s hearts with their warm visuals. However, humiliation in their previous work is holding them back.

Song Kang suffered a painful audience rating humiliation with his previous film JTBCNevertheless“. At that time, “Nevertheless“, which was broadcast as a Sunday drama, has been in the 1% range since the first episode, and the lowest ratings have fallen to 1.0%.

Han So Hee and Song Kang‘s visuals, who seem to have ripped out the original webtoon, received attention at once, but failed to lead the ratings. On top of that, Song Kang clearly revealed his insufficient acting skills, sparking controversy over his acting skills.

Nam Joo Hyuk lost his presence even though he was the main male lead in his previous tvN Start-Up“, but lost his presence behind Kim Seon Ho, the sub male lead.

This is because Han Ji Pyeong‘s (Kim Seon Ho) past took up the entire episode from the first episode, and the narrative of “Mr. Tall Legs“, which grumbles but does everything for him, has accumulated more viewers. As a result, viewers came to support Han Ji Pyeong and Seo Dal Mi, not Nam Do San‘s character (Nam Joo Hyuk).

Although “Start-Up” was not a big hit in terms of ratings, Kim Seon Ho became the biggest beneficiary of “Start-Up” by becoming a rising star through the drama.

Song Kang and Nam Joo Hyuk, who overcame the humiliation in their previous work and visited the small screen again with romance. “Forecasting Love and Weather“, starring Song Kang, tells the work and love stories of people working at the National Weather Service.

It depicts the cheerful love story of people who have ups and downs at their workplace. Director Cha Young Hoon in charge of “Forecasting Love and Weather” previously worked on “Bridal Mask“, “Gunman in Joseon“, “Uncontrollably Fond“, “Are You Human?” and “When The Camellia Blooms“.

Park Min Young will play as Jin Ha Kyung, a smart woman working for the National Weather Service at the Forecast Bureau in the 2nd division team of the Chief Forecasters. She lacks flexibility and is sensitive. She also draws a clear line with her colleagues.

Attention is focusing on whether Song Kang, who will show chemistry with “Roco GoddessPark Min Young, will be able to avoid controversy over his acting skills or escape the humiliation of ratings in this drama.

Twenty-five, Twenty-one“, starring Nam Joo Hyuk and Kim Tae Ri, is a drama about the romantic story of two people who first met when they were 22 and 18, then again four years later at 25 and 21.

The story follows the pure and fierce growth of immature youth and the excitement and difficulties between friendship and love.

Kim Tae Ri will play Na Hee Do, becomes a professional fencer for the National Fencing team after many twists and turns. Her high school team had to disband due to the IMF financial crisis that struck South Korea in the late 1990s. She is a bold person who doesn’t know how to give up.

Attention is focusing on whether Nam Joo Hyuk, who said, “We comforted and cheered each other, remembered those days, and sympathized with everyone, and appeared because it seemed to be a drama that everyone could enjoy together,” will complete a fresh “youth chemistry” with Kim Tae Ri in 1998 or whether he will be able to reveal his presence.
