Kim Jae Young talked about his upcoming rom-com!
“Love in Contract” is a new romantic comedy about a service that provides fake wives for single people in need of partners to bring to social gatherings, such as school reunions and dinners for married couples.
Park Min Young will star as professional fake wife Choi Sang Eun, who finds herself caught between longtime client Jung Ji Ho (Go Kyung Pyo)—with whom she has a long-term exclusive contract for Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays—and newcomer Kang Hae Jin (Kim Jae Young), who wants to sign a contract with her for Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
The drama is even more special in that it is Kim Jae Young’s first major rom-com role, especially since the actor has captivated the hearts of viewers through the small screen with stable acting skills. Kim Jae Young expressed his excitement for the rom-com and commented, “I found the script with a novel topic to be very interesting. Also, Kang Hae Jin has a variety of charms, so I definitely wanted to try it.”
Kim Jae Young caught viewers’ attention by previewing various transformations for his character. The actor said, “I tried to make a lot of changes to my appearance by preparing colorful outfits that are different from the ones I’ve shown [to the viewers] so far.” He continued, “Kang Hae Jin looks like a playful child on the outside, but he’s a genuine person on the inside. He has a free spirit, but when he approaches Choi Sang Eun, he is very charmingly straightforward at the same time.”
Kim Jae Young boasts fantastic chemistry with Park Min Young and Go Kyung Pyo. He shared, “Our chemistry is so good that I’m always enjoying filming. All the actors I work with are immersed into their characters well, so I am learning a lot [from them] too.” In particular, his character will become rivals with Go Kyung Pyo’s character over Choi Sang Eun. Kim Jae Young said, “The two men will exude unique chemistry due to the circumstances that happen with Park Min Young in the middle.” The actor added, “But in reality, [Go Kyung Pyo and I] saw each other often before filming started, so we are as comfortable as friends.” Anticipation is high for their acting chemistry, which is built upon their friendship.
Kim Jae Young shared his final remarks by saying, “‘Love in Contract’ is a novel, interesting, and lovely drama. Since I’m filming passionately, please show lots of anticipation, interest, and love [for the drama].”
“Love in Contract” premieres on September 21 at 10:30 p.m. KST and will be available with subtitles on Viki.
