yoon kyun sang and song jae rim set to romance kim yoo jung
Most awkward casting ever in my books. JTBC’s Clean With Passion For Now is back on since leading lady Kim Yoo Jung has recovered well enough to resume work. Yoon Kyun Sang will take up the leading man role after the original actor pulled out. And I swear Yoon Kyun Sang has to bend over in half for most of the drama to maintain eye contact with Kim Yoo Jung. She ain’t tall and he’s extremely tall. Song Jae Rim is pretty tall too so I’m just scratching my head thinking how the trio will present visually on screen.
Plus, Yoon Kyun Sang is 31, Song Jae Rim is 33, while Kim Yoo Jung is 18-going-on-19. The two male leads are strapping men, while Kim Yoo Jung still comes across very child-like in my opinion. Kim Sae Ron and Kim So Hyun have a more mature air about them so pairing them with older actors feels a little more acceptable, though I still find a couple of the match-ups rather ill-fitting.
It’s just going to be awkward. I don’t understand why JTBC couldn’t cast actors closer to Kim Yoo Jung’s age. The drama will premiere in November.
