“Icy Cold Romance” (literal title) tells the story of a “realistic survival romance” between Goo Yeo Reum and Park Jae Hoon, who have been best friends for 20 years. The pair begins to experience romantic feelings for each other after unexpectedly meeting as a producing director (PD) and cast member of a reality dating show.
Lee Da Hee stars as Goo Yeo Reum, who has been a variety show PD for the past 10 years and is desperate for both work and love. Super Junior’s Choi Siwon portrays Park Jae Hoon, a plastic surgeon who is considered unemployed because of his irregular pay and who has lost interest in both work and love.
ENA recently released the first teaser for “Icy Cold Romance” that captures the realistic and funny friendship between Goo Yeo Reum and Park Jae Hoon. The clip starts with Goo Yeo Reum getting comfy in bed after a long day of work. When she gets a call from someone asking to meet up, she shoots out of bed and quickly gets to deciding a new outfit. While getting ready, she phones her best friend Park Jae Hoon and excitedly shares, “He suddenly said he’s coming to meet me outside my house! I think he’s probably going to ask me to start dating as of today.”
Looking gloomy and annoyed, Park Jae Hoon responds, “You’re overreacting all by yourself…” Unbothered by his response, Goo Yeo Reum continues, “Should I just overtake him first?” Park Jae Hoon tells her, “You’ve finally gone crazy. Even if you overtake him, he is not going to sleep with you. I bet 2 million won [approximately $1,430].” Fed up now, Goo Yeo Reum quietly comments, “I should really just kill him…”
At the end, Park Jae Hoon spots Goo Yeo Reum outside, covered in mud. Instead of going over to help, he calls out her name and starts to mock her with a dance.

ENA also dropped a new retro teaser poster that shows old televisions featuring Goo Yeo Reum eating snacks and Park Jae Hoon drinking beer. The third TV beside them only shows color bars, hinting at a mysterious figure coming in to interrupt their long-standing relationship.
The producers commented, “Through the first ‘Icy Cold Romance’ teasers, we wanted to capture the drama’s popping atmosphere, entertaining story, and the romance chemistry that automatically makes viewers’ hearts flutter. More than anything, you will fall for Lee Da Hee and Choi Siwon’s sweet and salty ‘realistic romance acting.’ Please look forward to it lots.”
“Icy Cold Romance” premieres on October 5 at 9 p.m. KST!
